Virginia Storey

I spent a large part of my childhood in Australia. My father was a mining engineer and gold prospector. Consequently I grew up surrounded by an array of rock samples and precious ores. So it made complete sense after working for ten years as a graphic designer that I turned to Jewellery making. I had studied Graphics at Guildford Art School in the 1960s In the 1970s I went to Sir John Cass in Whitechapel London where I studied jewellery.
Since then I have spent my time adorning women’s necks and ears. I work with silver and semi precious stones, glass, plastics, acrylics, wood, paper, ribbons and bows, paperclips ,rubber bands. You name it and I will try and incorporate into something wearable. I love the challenge of turning everyday items Into decorative adornments. It’s my passion.
