Tomasz Donocik’s Rising Stars and Guns ‘n’ Roses

Tomasz Donocik’s jewellery is gathering a lot of attention around the world. This Polish-born and Austria-raised jewellery designer (now based in the UK) was identified as a rising star by British and Italian Vogue magazines.

Let’s discuss Tomasz’s designing background. After completing a BA hons in Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins, Tomasz Donocik gained a Masters of Arts in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art.

The talented young man went on to be crowned “best designer” at the New Designers Exhibition, and was hired by Stephen Webster to design men’s collections for De Beers and Garrard. He also won ‘jewellery designer of the year’ at the UK Jewellery Awards in 2011. Some of his jewellery pieces were presented during the London Fashion Week earlier this year.

All the while Donocik has been creating his own name brand, which is making ripples in the jewellery and fashion worlds, drawing inspiration from factual and fictional legends, literary classics and architecture. His pieces push the boundary between fashion and jewellery through the introduction of new materials such as leather and silk.

The Rising Star collection is a salute to the Soviet era, using the star and other bold Soviet symbols. These motifs are reproduced in sterling silver or bronze, which was often used for historical statues in Soviet Russia.

The Guns ‘n’ Roses Collection, on the other hand, is a tribute to Slash, Axl Rose, Izzy Stradin, Duff McKagan and Steven Adler, otherwise known as 80s hard rock band Guns ‘n’ Roses. Focused on hedonism and rebellion, this collection mirrors the regurgitated punk attitude which was prevalent in the hard rock scene in the 1980s. Silver, gold and black gold-played Pistol pendants play a key role in the collection which also hopes to represent the romantic side of Guns ‘n’ Roses with delicate, intertwined roses.

Timothy Roe will add Tomasz Donocik’s designs to their jewellery shop in Chichester, where they will be exhibited alongside other prestigious jewellery brands including Bjorg, Lovelinks, Ti Sento and Aradia Nista.
