Tamara Gomez

Tamara Gomez designs and hand crafts fine and fashion jewellery from her studio at Cockpit Arts, London. Born in Sri-Lanka, Tamara trained at Loughborough College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art graduating in 1997.

"I design and make jewellery using fine and sterling silver, various carats of gold, rough diamonds and gem stones. Intuitive and serendipitous by design my jewellery is earthy and organic in style which is derived from my interest in adapting traditional goldsmithing techniques and processes such as forging, forming and texturing metal with a variety of tools. I have always used gemstones in my work and my choice of stone is often based on cut, colour, shape and form as opposed to commercial value, including rough diamonds for each stones inherent visual qualities and rose cut diamonds for their subtle glow. I enjoy working in precious metals due to the range of alloys available, the colour’s they imbue and the physical properties each alloy has."

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 37 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
