James Newman

James Newman has been creating designer jewellery from his studio in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter since first establishing himself in 1998.

The exploration and juxtaposition of textures, sculptural forms and use of tactile elements are all key features.
The designs are characterised by a highly crafted quality, showing crisp, clear lines. Striking in its simplicity, his jewellery will add the finishing touch to any outfit, introducing a unique flair to almost any personal style.

James employs age-old jewellery-making skills in combination with newly emerging technologies and techniques. By embracing all aspects of jewellery production and by having a strong design philosophy, James aims to continue pushing boundaries, creating beautiful work that endures. All designs are available in 9, 14 or 18ct gold as well as platinum and palladium.
