Paul Hatton - Master Jeweller
Paul Hatton has made jewellery all his life, but his first major recognition came in Los Angeles, where he lived for 8 years. Having won all the major prizes offered by the Roman Ward Jewellery Institute in California, he then made jewellery and tableware for many celebrities including Jack Nicholson, Leonard Nimoy, Queen Latifa, Sugar Ray Leonard and Liv Tyler, as well as jewellery for the Highlander TV series in Hollywood. In the late 1990s, he returned to his native East End of London and was invited to exhibit in the major exhibitions ‘Cutlery Art’ (1999) and ‘Love Story’ (2003) in Goldsmith’s Hall, London. He now works from his studio in Monmouthshire, carrying out private commissions for his own client list and supplying his work to carefully selected outlets in the UK.
His work has been widely featured in the national press including ELLE, In Style and ES Magazine. He was recently commissioned to make the RIBA Stirling Prize by the Royal Institute of British Architects. Every piece is designed and hand-made by Paul Hatton, and he also accepts commissions, including wedding sets, engagement rings, stone setting, or any aspect of fine jewellery.
