The Patina Collection is a wonderful partnership our London based patina artist Derek Bayley, who is personally dedicated to the individual quality and refinement of each piece. Derek specialises in patina work for art and sculpture. Based near us in Deptford, South East London, his work is a true combination of art and science.
Patina (in its broadest sense) implies weathering, the effects of time and the changing states of metals as they are exposed to the elements. The art of patina however comes from celebrating the natural effects of this atmospheric exposure and embracing the changing colours and textures that occur. It’s about viewing discolouration and imperfection as a beautiful evolution of a material rather than a negative change. Each of our necklaces, cufflinks and pins is hand crafted by Derek one by one, so no two pieces will ever be the same.
"These cufflinks are one of the most beautiful things I own." Justin
The patina jewellery is precision turned in our aerospace factory. Made in Britain, using true engineering experts, it is then delivered to Derek, our Patina Artist, to work his magic.
This collection of mens and women's jewellery is inspired and informed by the ancient art of patina and the science of natural patination.
Every piece of patina jewellery is hand crafted individually by Derek our patina artist. Each piece is truly unique!
