David Watkins

Born: 1940

David Watkins has been designing and making jewellery since the 1960s and is known for his experimental approach to materials and technology. He was the Professor of Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art from 1984-2007. He is a studio jeweller and occasional sculptor.

“I like to explore technologies – to discover what they can do for me. And materials. All materials have their own inherent beauty – it’s simply a matter of teasing this out. This means we must also make with hands, eyes and intuition, being true to our personal vision.” – David Watkins
