TIGER FINCH JEWELLERY
The best pieces of jewellery are timeless, not in fashion but in style, artistic and unique.
The best pieces of jewellery are timeless, not in fashion but in style, artistic, unique. This is what drives my creativity, standing out, wearing something special and not machine mass produced. Jewellery for me is a beautiful escape from the mundane, leaving behind precious objects, for future generations to discover. I created Tiger Finch Jewellery to represent my brand and showcase these unique designs.

I work in beautiful sterling silver and 18ct and 14ct gold. Black opals and decadent opal carvings from Lightning Ridge feature heavily in my collections.
A PASSION FOR LEARNING NEW TECHNIQUES
My love of gemstones has been with me for as long as I can remember, it became a natural succession for me to work in the field of jewellery. Having studied jewellery making techniques as an apprentice; Silversmithing at Sir Richard Cass College, London and more recently private study in Goldsmithing on the sunshine Coast. With over ten years experience with opals from Lightning Ridge, I can trust the miners I buy from and know the Opals are of the highest quality and are always handpicked by me.
PAST LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
Leaving behind a great job in London’s Hatton Garden Jewellery quarter (working for a diamond company) I flew to Australia to find Opal in the Lightning Ridge Opal fields, NSW. I bought rough opal, learnt how to cut and polish, appraise opal and gained an absolute appreciation for the beauty of opal carvings and free form Opals. Now I live and work in Brisbane and create all my pieces in the Tiger Finch Jewellery Studio, where I spend as much time as possible creating new pieces and drawing ideas for the future. In the coming months, I will be working on a new direction, a more naturalistic sculptural form for a new Jewellery range. So please keep checking in or sign up for regular updates.
