Announcement   Tamara Gomez designs and hand crafts rough diamond and gem set fine jewellery in sterling silver and various carats of gold from her studio at Cockpit Arts in Central London.
Born in Sri-Lanka, Tamara trained at Loughborough College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art.
Tamara's jewellery has a raw luxury and enduring style derived from using traditional gold smithing techniques while maintaining an idiosyncratic approach to making and her inspiration embraces nature, spirituality, intuition and serendipity.
As well as creating evolving collections, Tamara regularly works to commission on bespoke designs.
Tamara’s signature 'Rough diamond collection' recognizes the raw beauty of a natural uncut diamond and celebrates the quirks that rough diamonds have, where certain parts of the jewellery industry would call these quirks inclusions.
Tamara see’s these so called inclusions as character giving.
They are not flaws.
It’s just nature going about its sometimes unpredictable but awe inspiring business.
A good analogy is to look at us human beings.
Each of us has our own distinctive characteristics. None of us are perfect and there is always beauty to be found in imperfection.

Thank you to Tamara for the delightful ring. It arrived promptly and smoothly, and I am overjoyed with it! It feels more special as handmade as opposed to mass-produced, and I love the look of the natural, rough diamond against the white gold metal. Original and Perfect!! ❤️

About

Rough diamond and gem set fine jewellery hand crafted in London, UK

ABOUT ME:
I was born in Sri-Lanka and bought up in the UK in Essex which, for those of you outside the UK is a county just East of London.

I studied goldsmithing and jewellery for 5 years and graduated from The Royal College of Art in 1997 and immediately set up my studio in central London.

Over the years my style has evolved and I now design and hand craft rough diamond and gem set jewellery that takes its inspiration from nature, spirituality and intuition and techniques.
My jewellery has a natural, raw luxury derived from the materials I use such as uncut diamonds and techniques such as forging.

I live and work in London and my studio is based at Cockpit Arts, Holborn which is a thriving hub of craftsmen and designers studios.
We have Open Studio's twice a year so if you are ever in London mid June or end of November please come say 'Hi'.

I have a serendipitous approach to making and ideas and finished pieces come freely from working directly with the materials and taking an idiosyncratic approach to goldsmithing techniques.

I regularly uses assorted cuts of diamonds including raw, rough diamonds and rose cut diamonds and my signature 'Rough diamond collection' celebrates the raw beauty of natural, uncut diamonds.

As well as selling directly to the public from studio and online, my work is sold in galleries, shops and boutiques across the UK and I also have an outlet in Japan.

When I'm not in the studio life is mainly filled with meditation, yoga, experimenting in the kitchen, music, gigs, books, travel, dabbling with ceramics and spending time with people I love.
