Melbourne's finest bespoke and custom jewellery designers
Paul Stewart, Head Designer and Jeweller
Prior to opening APS Jewellery in 2014, Paul was trained and mentored in high-end, luxury workshops in Melbourne and Sydney.
Paul's designs are heavily influenced by his love of Art Deco design, sacred geometric art, and coloured gemstones. His love of and interest in these styles come from decades of research and the time he has spent travelling, particularly his experiences with his extended family in Turkey.
Paul has a deep commitment to the art of handcrafting jewellery. Having inherited many of his tools from a retiring jeweller, his workshop comprises of tools that have been used for over 70 years, as well as newer, cutting edge technology in jewellery making. This brings together the old and the new, creating modern, yet classic works of art.
Paul lives in Melbourne with his wife Ela, and their two young boys.
