I was already in awe of Viki Pearce when I discovered her beautiful wedding rings via the Chosen Wedding Fair. When I asked Viki if we could run a feature so I could show you her work, she sent me the best photos ever. Exquisite shots of her artisan wedding rings, her wall of vintage hammers and – because I love to know who’s behind the beautiful pieces I see – a gorgeous shot of the designer herself, complete with boots I want for me, like now. Anyone want to join me in a massive #fangirl crush?!
“I create tactile, expressive jewellery pieces using traditional goldsmithing techniques. Inspiration comes from the work of ancient Columbian and Etruscan goldsmiths as well as modern literature and the natural world. I bring out the natural lustre and warmth of gold by using antique tools and natural objects to apply subtle surface textures creating classic and timeless designs that are simple and soulful.
My range of wedding bands are designed to sit alongside and compliment many engagement rings. The sets work together but each ring can stand alone and be worn separately. I offer a bespoke service and have a range of unique stones in natural colours with loads of character. All styles are available in yellow, rose and white gold or a combination of colours and can be set with diamonds for added sparkle.
Sourcing ethically is an integral part of my process, I view the provenance of my materials to be integral to the beauty of my jewellery, so work with recycled, Fairtrade and Fairmined silver and gold. I’m proud to be able to support projects that are working to improve environmental standards and working conditions for miners.
Viki Pearce will be amongst some of Wales and the South West’s finest artisan wedding suppliers exhibiting at the Chosen Wedding Fair in Cardiff on the 18th of March 2018.
