Barbara Spence


Barbara is a London based jeweler working principally in silver using traditional techniques to create elegant, original, contemporary pieces with subtle references to mid-century shapes and form. Her influences are vary,  but geometry, color and contrast play an important part in her creative process; squares juxtaposed with circles, gold with silver, burnished against matt, faceted with cabochon, harmonising and clashing colors. 

 Her distinctive square stacking rings exemplify Barbara’s aesthetic. Each deceptively simple ring can be worn as a stand-alone piece but they come into their own when worn in sets. Barbara works with clients to create their own unique stack combining precious metals, gemstones and now Perspex which can be worn in a variety of ways and built up over years. 

 This summer Barbara has launched a new Perspex collection. Conceived to complement her existing work she has reworked her signature pieces in vibrantly colored acrylics as well as adding new designs. The bold colors have been carefully chosen to contrast with precious metals and add a joyful new dimension to Barbara's work.
