Ruth Anthony

2008 QEST Holland & Holland Ltd Scholar - Hand Engraving

Ruth specialises in creating personalised hand-engraved imagery and lettering on jewellery. She can interpret any image into an engraved design so get in touch to commission a jewel just for you.

Following a course in jewellery design and manufacture, Ruth worked as a goldsmith before specialising in hand engraving in London’s Hatton Garden. She continued to focus on engraving thanks to a QEST grant which allowed her to undertake work experience with specialist gun engraving firms. In 2007 Ruth set up her workshop undertaking work for ‘the trade’ on commission for jewellers and designers before launching her own range.

My work is inspired by a wide variety of themes and images that I observe in the world around me. I am interested in patterns; whether natural or artificial, drawing inspiration from a variety of imagery including engraved book plates, architectural details, frost patterns and power pylons.
