Biography:

I first became interested in making jewellery whist studying Creative Design at Loughborough University. Following university I went into secondary education where Jewellery and Silversmithing was a subject I taught. After a period in teaching I knew designing and making jewellery was the path I wanted to follow and I am still on that path to this day. Over this period I have sold and exhibited my work throughout the country including my own Robert Feather Jewellery Gallery in York, but now I sell my work almost exclusively through my home workshop/studio where I welcome commissions by appointment. I mostly specialise in bespoke wedding and engagement rings and jewellery which incorporate the use of different coloured precious metals and stones. I aim to use the colour and surface finish of the metal together with precious stones to create a range of clean understated effective designs.
