Julia Lloyd George
After training at London’s Sir John Cass School of Art, Julia Lloyd George was apprenticed to a Hatton Garden manufacturing jeweller. Unusually for a woman at the time she learnt craftsmanship first-hand at the bench, reaching the highest level of skill and expertise. She went on to design for Garrard & Company, later creating collections for the company under her own name. In 1985, she launched her own business as an independent designer-maker.
