Biography:

Paul Battes is an innovative designer jeweller based in the Cotswolds. From his rural workshop he creates elegant and sculptural pieces of jewellery that are a pleasure to wear.Paul was inspired to create the popular Book-Leaf collection from contemplating the curled pages of a paperback novel.  “My eye was caught by the progression of the leaves away from the cover and I found myself pondering whether I could incorporate this into a design”.The first item made within the Book-Leaf collection was an 18ct yellow gold square pendant. Square earrings, an oval diamond set pendant with matching earrings, and an 18ct yellow gold ring soon followed. In February 2008 Paul designed and produced the Trilliant Book-Leaf pendant, a platinum triangular shaped pendant with a trilliant cut diamond captured in the centre. Paul will be launching his new Book-Leaf piece at Collections and Desire in 2009.The strength of Paul’s work is in its simplicity and design, and Paul’s keen eye for detail ensures that each unique piece is afforded the same exceptional quality. Paul welcomes commissions and his collections can be viewed at selected galleries around the UK. Paul is available by appointment only at his Winchcombe workshop.
