pictureTheo Fennell is acknowledged as one of today's premier design led jewellers. His unique jewellery and silverware are distinctive and inspirational. His style combines modern design with classical tradition making it instantly recognisable. His attention to detail and ability to interpret grand design on a miniature scale has helped to establish the company as a force for innovative and superbly made jewellery and silverware worldwide.

The son of an army family, Theo Fennell was educated at Eton and then studied art at York and later the Byam Shaw.  On leaving the Byam Shaw, Theo got his first job working as an apprentice designer at the wonderfully Dickensian silversmiths, Edward Barnard, established in the 17th Century.  When a customer brought in a silver champagne flute for repair, bearing the inscription “Good Morning, Diana”, Theo was struck by this witty and romantic gesture, and quite taken with the idea of the glamorous and intoxicated Diana.  Such an unusual and compelling item reinforced his belief that jewellery and silverware could be irreverent as well as beautiful, could tell a story and should, above all, give a renewed thrill of pleasure every time it was looked at. picture

After working at Edward Barnard, and with the help of a largish silver commission, Theo established a small workshop in Hatton Garden designing and creating silverware and jewellery. His first shop opened in Chelsea’s Fulham Road with the founding of his eponymous company in 1982.  Further boutiques opened in many of England’s most famous department stores, including Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, later these would be followed by similar international boutiques, giving the company an international name.

Intelligent, witty design, quirky ideas and superb craftsmanship are the cornerstones of Theo’s philosophy and, to ensure the highest quality, he insists that the majority of his jewellery and silver is made by craftsmen he has worked with for many years.

Theo Fennell’s workshop is situated above the Fulham Road flagship store in the heart of London. Theo and his incredibly talented team of designers and craftsmen take great pride in being involved in every phase, so that the Theo Fennell vision is realised to the last detail.

pictureThe completely self-contained workshop is home to a large team of brilliant craftsmen, and is next to Theo’s design studios. It is one of the very few workshops left to do its own mounting, engraving, setting and smithing, and one of only a handful attached to its retail shop. Some of the craftsmen have been with Theo for nearly 30 years, however, he also believes in nurturing young talent and currently has two apprentices training in his workshop to keep this great British craft alive.

“It is the marriage of design and craftsmanship with beautiful and rare materials that gives romance and prominence to proper jewellery and silver. Jewellery should be personal and life-enhancing” says Theo Fennell.

Theo’s latest Bee collection is designed to be uplifting and delicate, wearable and sentimental. What strangely ambivalent little things bees are; we know they sting but we love them just the same. Their buzz is the harbinger of a lazy summer’s day, yet they are so industrious. And what a job they do; going from lovely flower to flower pollinating or making honey; what a combination, sex and sweetness with a sting in the tail. Theo loves this paradox, loves their shape and thinks that for genuinely pretty jewellery the bee is a classic symbol.  picture

ALIAS is Theo Fennell’s first fine jewellery collection in silver. The ALIAS collection has allowed Theo the freedom to explore new designs and techniques in silver whilst maintaining the Theo Fennell ethos of the utmost originality of design and quality of craftsmanship.

“I wanted to produce a collection that reflected our design heritage but in materials we haven’t used before, and give ourselves the freedom to explore new boundaries that would make the collections more available to a much wider audience from young to old, in both price and feel.” Theo Fennell.
