Born in 1953, Geoff Roberts is a talented British jewelry designer. He graduated from the Birmingham College of Art in 1975 and Royal College of Art in 1978. Permanent participant of applied art and jewelry exhibitions, he received various awards. In particular, Craft Council Exhibition Grant (1986), Merseycraft Prize (1993), Inches Carr Trust Bursary Award (1997) and SAC Bursary for Individual Development Award in 2000.
Having settled on the Moray Coast in North Scotland, he created truly unique stylized jewelry pieces of bizarre forms and saturated colors. Roberts used colored acrylic and mixed materials, and most of them are collages of multi-colored metal foil laid over acrylic. Also, in the creative gallery of Geoff Roberts are jewelry pieces made of steel and metal leaf, silver, aluminium, and other materials. Undoubtedly, the works of Jeff Roberts are easily recognizable, and can not be confused with the works of other designers.
According to the designer, design is an intuitive and ever evolving process.
Geoff Roberts died in 2019, he was 66.
