A native of Kuala Lumpur, Vicky Lew graduated from Central Saint Martins, London in 2014 with a First Class Honours in jewellery design. Vicky's design house is based in London, where she has lived for more than 10 years and now considers home.
Vicky's design aesthetic is rooted in the classical Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi, that beauty can too be found in imperfection, impermanence and incompletion. A rose on the vine and a fallen rose on the ground are equally beautiful. Each piece is crafted with traditional Eastern sensibilities with Western design concepts, delivering strong narratives and intricate interplays between organic shapes and geometric forms.
Experience with industry giants CARTIER and SWAROVSKI during her time at university have honed Vicky's skills, enabling her to grow and develop as a designer, all while affording her the opportunity to familiarize herself with all aspect of the jewellery industry.
Experimental in nature, Vicky explores unconventional materials in her collections. Past collections have included the use of aluminium, palladium, tin-plate and resin for the pieces, allowing her to express her versatility in a variety of media. This was duly recognised by her industry peers, leading her to be awarded a Silver Award for Fine Jewellery at the Goldsmiths' CRAFT & DESIGN COUNCIL AWARDS, as well as the award for "Best Design" by THEO FENNELL AWARDS.
Vicky is based in the heart of Hatton Garden at the Goldsmiths' Centre in Clerkenwell.
