Size and fit
Dinny Hall: "I believe that design is not just about translating things you see, but also translating things you feel."
What is your background and how did you get into jewellery design?
I went to Central Saint Martin’s school of art, way back in the 1980s. I suppose, I took the academic route to learn how to make jewellery, and it gave me the time to experiment. There was never any question when I left that I was going to do anything rather than being a jewellery designer.
What would you say the role of jewellery is today, and in general?
Without a doubt to make people happy. There’s no doubt. It is a little pleasure in life just like a cake except jewellery you can keep. And of course, it has a lot of meaning. There’s a huge emotional attachment, so more than just happiness, it is about the emotional attachment to life, and passing on as heirlooms. It doesn’t have to be expensive. It can be a little finger ring, and it can have great importance.
