Jewellery

Tomasz Donocik

To be launched during the London Fashion Week at Somerset House, the Rock Vault is a jewellery initiative from the British Fashion Council with the aim to support and promote new fine jewellery designers based in London. Among the jewellers selected to showcase at the event, we came across the work of Tomasz Donocik, a former graduate of the MA Jewellery at the Royal College of Art whose style he himself describes as “romantic gothic with an opulent twist”. A very interesting tour into the art of the precious introduced in a sexy flamboyant mix of storytelling, mythological references, inspirations from 19th Century Russian literature and Soviet taste. “For those who don’t resist temptation but pursue it”. New perceptions on men’s jewellery.
