This pair of beautifully crafted sterling silver egg cups are a one-off creation by master jeweller Paul Hatton. They have been hand raised; a technique that creates a subtle textured surface to the metal. The cups are onlaid with 9 carat gold and set with garnets and Swiss blue topaz.
Born in London in 1963, Paul Mark 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 Jack Nicholson, Queen Latifa, Sugar Ray Leonard and Liv Tyler, as well as the 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. His work has been widely featured in the national press including ELLE magazine, In Style and ES Magazine. He was recently commissioned to make the RIBA Stirling Prize for Architecture by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
From his studio in Monmouthshire, or by appointment in London, Paul also carries out private commissions for engagement rings, wedding bands, christening spoons, and many one-off designs. He also supplies carefully selected jewellers in the UK, as well as selling direct to the public by this website, where you can view more of his original designs here: Paul Hatton.
