“We make jewelry that never has a perfect moment,” says Polly Wales. This couldn’t be truer. Polly’s work is not your average shiny, symmetrical jewelry. Her hand made, one of a kind pieces have a more unique, honest, and imperfect beauty. Her extensive background and knowledge, along with her eye for the kind of beauty that doesn’t come every day, are what make her jewelry so special. Polly Wales studied jewelry at the Royal College of Art after mastering the art of sculpture. This combination of studies allowed her to have a different perspective on the art of jewelry design, and that shows through her work. The collections that she has gone on to develop are drawn from an eclectic mix of references from Byzantine and Indian jewelry through trends in high fashion.
Since Polly Wales’ pieces are one of a kind, every piece comes from extreme attention to detail. She only uses 18k yellow and rose gold. As far as gemstones go, she uses vintage diamonds (mostly from the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds), rubies, and sapphires. She selects these because of their strength and ability to withstand the elements it takes to create her unique styles, along with their timeless beauty.
Dandelion is Polly Wales’ only dealer in Pennsylvania, and we are constantly getting new one-of-a kind-pieces of her work. The great thing about Polly’s jewelry is that it offers a wide range of jewelry styles from more traditional pieces to out of the box statement pieces, and everything in between.
