My voluminous settings, in which I seat the stone, give space to admire their many aspects. The placement of the stone in the setting parallels the microscopic structures that are so fascinating to me. The interplay of light & shadow is another important aspect of my metal work; using gentle curves, intersected by flat plains, creating a simultaneously visually stimulating & tactile finish.
Using traditional techniques, precious metals and diamonds, each piece is skilfully handmade in our workshop in central Cornwall, UK. The intricacy of Victoria’s works give them an ‘heirloom’ quality and these botanical treasures are usually bought as significant memory-markers; gifts to celebrate life’s big events such as a birth, wedding anniversary, milestone birthday, graduation or retirement.
