Theo Fennell

Theo Fennell was at Eton in the 1960’s and became their first pupil in living memory to go on to art college; first York and then The Byam Shaw. Beginning his career in portraiture, he soon realised he might starve if he continued down this path. It was by pure chance that he was then offered a job at the great silversmiths Edward Barnard’s where he discovered an aptitude and passion for silver and jewellery design and a huge respect for craftsmen and craftsmanship. He formed his eponymous company in the late 70’s establishing his Studio and Workshop in Chelsea where they are still based today.

There is a story behind every piece as he incorporates highly original, beautifully detailed design with the classical and romantic traditions. Theo takes great pride in being involved with every phase of the creation of these pieces to make sure that his vision is realised to the last detail. This means that every piece is distinctive and inspirational and bears the same sensibility.
