The Bill Skinner brand is firmly rooted in Bill’s own appreciation for creativity, craftsmanship and quality.
Bill explored his creativity at Sir John Cass College of Art, followed by a number of developmental stints at companies in London’s Hatton Garden area. His talents were soon recognised, earning him a reputation as a rising craftsman as he became the go-to freelancer designer for revered brands including Van Cleef & Arpels, Asprey and Garrards. In the 1980’s, Bill worked with Butler & Wilson and Vivienne Westwood, two invaluable experiences that forged relationships with the fashion and costume jewellery industries.
As his success grew to worldwide critical acclaim he won a number of royal commissions and noteworthy projects spanning three decades. In January 2012, Bill launched his namesake brand with an eponymous collection of remarkably charismatic, joyful, whimsical, and distinct costume jewellery. This exquisite first season was met with international praise, reinforcing that the unconventional and interesting are often the most beautiful and admired.
The pieces are incredibly detailed. Bill Skinner's talent and expertise shine forth in the tiny universes he creates, filled with flowers, bees, bugs, and more. He is regularly featured in British Vogue, Elle, and Stylist as well as The Times and The Telegraph. Bill has a cult following in the UK, Europe and China!
