Meet the Maker: Rob Howden

My past life has been in architecture which took me to the Middle East in the 70s and 80s where I collected bits and pieces of Bedouin Jewellery. Many of the pieces were only ‘bits and pieces’ and in recent years I enrolled in a jewellery course to learn various techniques to be able to include the Bedouin pieces in modern settings.

I wanted to design and make unusual and original pieces to satisfy my overall interest in design through architecture.  All my pieces are one off so in owning one of my pieces of jewellery it will not be repeated.

As I love all kinds of design and nature I am influenced by nature and sometimes like to have movement integrated into my designs.
