About Julia Lloyd George
Julia’s work focuses on the intersection of colour, form and texture. She sources unusual gemstones of exceptional colour. Her innate feel for metal, proportion, and finish, combined with her eye for colour enable her to instinctively present these stones to their best potential. Her Paraiba tourmalines tend to be set in beaten yellow gold, evocative of sea and sand. While a Rhodonite garnet is enhanced by a red gold setting. It is the line engraving, surface treatment and hand finishing that renders Julia’s work at once recognisable. Her work has been described as having an ‘ancient yet timeless’ feel.
Julia’s process involves setting her precious gemstones carefully within the appropriate metal, her treatment of the metal involves texturing the surface. This could be through applying a beaten texture with a specially made hammer, or through engraving a line texture – all of these processes have the purpose of enhancing the stones – although sometimes are used for their inherent beauty, as in her beaten gold rings and earrings.
