Will Odell Oxidised silver and gold necklace

Will's degree in metalwork and jewellery, from the University of the Creative Arts, in Farnham, focused mainly on blacksmithing. Although he focused on metal work at a large scale, he always had an interest in jewellery and smaller metal work, which he was able to explore through a silver bursary from the Goldsmiths’ Company. After his graduation, having discovered both his ultimate metal and scale, he went on to work with two silversmiths.

He is inspired by his passion for classic and vintage cars, and is influenced by the skills and techniques of the craftsmen who have designed and made some of history’s most iconic and beautiful cars.

Will’s designs incorporate simple elegant forms complemented with a hammered texture and made using traditional techniques of hand raising and forging.
