Yvonne Ross

Balance and simplicity of design are always key elements in my work. I love clean lines and take inspiration from architecture, mechanical objects and natural forms. Gemstones are another focus of my designs and all of the stones I use are carefully sourced and hand-picked for their individual beauty.  I would describe my work as structured and contemporary.
