Michael de Vildosola studied Design: Jewellery, Silversmithing and Allied Crafts at London Guildhall. References to natural forms and historical civilisations regularly appear in his work. Like miniature sculptures his pieces are to be enjoyed over lifetimes. The forms and textures of the metals that encase the gemstones are as important as the stones themselves. After developing his craft in London and Barcelona he settled in Perth as a contemporary master jeweller in 2005. In 2020 a piece Michael was commissioned to design and make for Habit Barcelona was worn on the red carpet of the 2020 Oscars.
