As a child, Gurveen loved to make her imagination a reality and favoured making things over reading stories. A strong visual spatial awareness saw her excel in graphics, product design and art based subjects during her school years. She continued to embrace this three-dimensional thinking and embarked on an evening course where she learnt basic jewellery making skills and where she fell in love with the concept of transforming precious metal into beautiful wearable art.
Gurveen went on to study HND Jewellery Design at Glasgow Kelvin College where she built and honed skills in manufacturing and processing jewellery whilst working at the bench of a local family jeweller.
During Gurveen’s time at college she really connected with the 2D design aspect of her work through studying and creating technical paint ups of her designs. Her work was recognised at the 2015 Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards where she was commended with a Gold Award and a Highly Commended for her exquisite 2D designs.
Keen to further progress her studies, she moved to Birmingham’s iconic jewellery quarter where she studied Jewellery and Silversmithing- Design for Industry at Birmingham City School of Jewellery.
Gurveen joined Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery to pursue her love of connecting with people to design jewellery for them that holds such personal meaning.
