At Oresome we believe that your jewellery should be as individual as you are. Introducing Oresome Jeweller and Business Partner Victoria Prince.
Tell us about a your typical day?
If I am heading to the gym for a morning yoga session it’s a 6am start, I usually spend around an hour there then head home grab some breakfast and head out to the field for an hour to walk my dog Roo before heading to Oresome. Most days I check emails straight away and then get into the workshop to either work on developing my own range of bespoke one off pieces or a commission I am working on. At the moment it’s a stunning diamond engagement ring.
What I love about what I do is that no two days are ever the same and we get so many interesting commissions in. it’s a real privilege to be part of someone’s story and help create that special piece of jewellery that will last a lifetime and be passed on to future generations. We usually head home around 6pm unless we have any pressing jobs to finish.
How did you become a jeweller?
Even as a child I loved making things and my poor mum got all sorts of weird and wonderful creations. I always had a fascination for jewellery and my sister and I used to play dress up and ask to try things on in Mums jewellery box. This grew to to creating pieces, just simple to begin with I then went onto study 3D Design and college and had the chance to work with silver. After that I was hooked and went on to do a BA (Hons) in Silver Smithing and Jewellery at Birmingham School of Jewellery. I loved every minute of it and being in the heart of Birmingham’s famous jewellery quarter was like a dream!
What’s you passion outside of jewellery?
I love to travel and experience new cultures. I also enjoy a good night out hitting the dance floor especially if its salsa!
Where is your favourite place to visit on Holiday?
As I said before one of my passions is to travel and I recently went to Iceland. It was somewhere that I had wanted to go for a long time. It was an amazing place the landscape was stunning, so different to anywhere else I have been. We went in the wintertime and it was such an amazing feeling being out in the thick snow but nice and warm in the natural thermal springs. I am already planning the next trip to see more of the country.
