Anthony Blakeney

Shimmering in the sunshine will be Anthony Blakeney’s precious rings scattered with sparkling diamonds and colourful gemstones. His delightful golden ‘sun kissed’ faces hand engraved onto his silver ‘Rose Root’ rings will definitely put a smile on your face, as well as your finger!

Anthony says:

I have been making jewellery for more than 25 years, having studied design at Leeds College of Art.  Following full time craft studies, I began a period learning the art of diamond setting. 

It wasn't until a few years later that my love of design was renewed, and I began designing and selling at Trade Fairs across the country, and abroad.

Although I am known for my classic hand made tension ring design, I like to experiment, and sometimes some of these pieces are turned into finished jewellery, such as the range which I have developed by casting pieces of rose root into silver, and shaping into finished items.

I welcome suggestions for commissions, and I am able to obtain all available gemstones.

The silver I use in my work is recycled, and all my ingredients are ethically sourced.

The six super talented jewellers spending the Summer with us are: Anthony Blakeney; Antonella Giomarelli; Francesca Marcenaro; Justin Duance; Becca Macdonald and Beth Pegler. There will also be a separate seaside/nautically themed display by a wide range of international jewellers that we regularly show at the gallery. So lots to see at the Saltaire Seaside!
