Born in Poland and raised in Austria the now London based Designer, Tomasz Donocik graduated from the Royal College of Art and has designed for some of the world's most respected Jewellers, including Stephen Webster and Garrard. His body of work has succeeded in building a unique mythology around the jewellery he creates.
Donocik’s body of work boldly reinterprets modernity through subverting motifs of classicism and masculinity. His inspirations bring together literature, architecture and surrealism to redefine jewellery for the contemporary accessories wearer.
With the skill of an artisan, and unrestricted by the constraints of traditional jewellery design, Donocik's work aims to challenge preconceptions of self-adornment. Through the sensitive fusion of materials his bold, masculine and often androgynous designs inject the discipline with new meaning and form.
Hilary Alexander of The Telegraph writes that Donocik “…is determined to spearhead a new way for men to wear jewellery.” Donocik has been credited with several notable awards including ‘Jewellery Designer of the Year' (Goldsmiths 2006); ‘New Designer of the Year’ (Collections 2009) and multiple Gold and Silver awards for ‘Craftsmanship and Design’.
A regular fixture in the fashion press, in 2010 British and Italian Vogue hailed Donocik as a rising star in the Jewellery Industry and won the 'Jewellery Designer of the Year Award' 2011.
