Jeweller of the Month
Since a child Victoria Markham has been a treasure explorer collecting stones, shells and unusual fossils. She has gone onto create a range of handmade jewellery from this process of collecting. Victoria chooses ethically sourced, hand-cut rare stones such as rare jaspers, dinosaur bone and opals as well as fossils like pyrite ammonites for her collection. She is able to melt silver down to create a unique and bespoke pattern to incorporate these rare pieces within. Currently she is working with other artists to transform pen and paint into precious stones and metal.

The Ropewalk has a growing reputation for its collection of contemporary jewellery with prices ranging from a few pounds to a few hundred – there is always something for everyone.
Each jeweller represented by The Ropewalk hand produces and designs their own jewellery creating pieces with a unique quality.
Our jewellery is displayed in a beautifully crafted bespoke cabinet made by Lincolnshire designer Tim Rinaldi. It formed part of commission, along with our counter in the Craft Gallery, funded by Arts Council England. If you wish to see more of Tim’s work please visit his website.
