Biography:

Julian Stephens specialises in bespoke contemporary jewellery, hand crafted in precious metals and exquisite gemstones. While Julian's talent lies in creating individual pieces to private commission, he also showcases his supreme collection of silverware, gold and platinum jewellery set with stunning precious gemstones in his jewellery boutique in the heart of Brighton's famous North Laine district. The boutique is home to over twenty British designers, in one beautiful, light and spacious environment. Julian's skill in carefully selecting jewellery for its exceptional quality in design and execution makes this one of the south coast's leading collections of unique handmade jewellery. Julian's work is influenced by the type of commissions he is asked to make, and recent designs are more elaborate, following organic forms and geometric patterns, where detail and quality of craftsmanship are paramount. His love and expertise in sourcing exceptional gemstones, coupled with talented manipulation of precious metals has resulted in larger, more opulent pieces being created of late. Each piece celebrates the beauty of these natural materials, leaving the customer with a design classic to cherish forever.
