Rory Hooper is an explorer of creating, if through unconventional designs or through combining materials that are traditionally unusual. A trained jewellery designer-maker, any object or piece of art work is hand made with a range of techniques, from up-cycling to creative reuse, classic making to 3D printing and everything in between is his range of passion. 

Specialising in producing made to order bespoke, one-off pieces of jewellery and objects for clients, exhibitions, collections and production.
