Paul was inspired to make jewelry whilst traveling in Asia & has been working as a self-taught designer jeweler for nearly 25 years. He lived in North Cornwall for several years, before relocating to Southern France with his family in 2009. Working alone in the solitude of his rural workshop Paul draws on his technical abilities to undertake all aspects involved in the design and fabrication of his work (apart from casting). He creates indulgent & interesting pieces, incorporates imaginative & bold settings with no constraints on design.
Paul uses a variety of innovative techniques. He produces distinctive ranges of jewelry demonstrating a love of strong form with few embellishments. He contrasts color and texture with organic flowing forms in silver and gold and often combines this with diamonds or gemstones in unusual settings.
Paul also produces some items in 18ct gold including commissioned items such as wedding and engagement rings. Please contact us for custom orders. Lireille is the only gallery representing Paul Finch in the USA.
