Victoria Tillotson Jewelry Inc.
Since childhood, Victoria has been obsessed with the idea of adornment. Growing up, she found expression in punk rock music and style; years later, she's still drawn to the rebelliousness of that movement. This love of classic individualism is the cornerstone of her designs.
Iconic shapes and motifs form the backbone of Victoria's sterling silver and gemstone jewelry lines. She leans towards simplicity and minimalism, but accents her pieces with fine texturing and unusual gemstone combinations. The look is infinitely wearable, but with a bold, modern twist.
But like the jeweler herself, there's more than one side to Victoria's work: her statement pieces are true, outrageous head-turners, from rings outfitted with outlandish gemstones and spikes, to spectacular hammered body art pieces, all crafted with an eye toward pushing the aesthetic envelope.
Victoria's unique approach to jewelry is well-recognized: in April 2006, she was featured on Oh! Be Jeweled!, a special airing on the Oxygen network. Her jewelry has also appeared on MTV's TRL and TLC network, and celebrities such as Alicia Keys, Scarlett Johanssen, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Gwen Stefani, Drew Barrymore, Pink, Mary J. Blige, Kelis, and other fashion-forward icons enjoy her pieces. She is the host of metalchik.com, the first broadband channel devoted exclusively to jewelry making and trends, and makes regular appearances Home Shopping Network and Better TV. In April 2009, her much-anticipated jewelry making book Chic Metal (Random House, Potter Craft) will hit the shelves. Victoria teaches jewelry making at the prestigious School of Visual Arts, where each semester she inspires dozens of students to express their own individuality through jewelry.
