ABOUT TIME

TIME is Meta's debut collection where special memories are represented through the shape of our jewellery. Jewellery often marks an important point in time, such as a special anniversary, birthday or landmark moment. Send us your important date and we will use it to design your unique piece. Each date is turned into a geometric shape with our bespoke algorithm. That shape is 3D printed, cast in precious metal and carefully hand-finished. With no two pieces the same, each ring, necklace, earring and cufflink are masterfully produced in Birmingham UK's prestigious jewellery quarter. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once you have placed your order, leave the rest with us. We will design your custom piece and send it off to be made.

WHEN WILL I GET MY ORDER?
It will take us 4-6 weeks to create, make and deliver your unique jewellery.

SIZE
TIME rings are made to measure. When you place your order, you need to select a ring size. To help you find this, we’ve created a size guide. We also have free ring sizers available to order. 
Ring Width: 6mm

MATERIALS & FINISHES
This innovative collection includes rings, necklaces, pendants, earrings and cufflinks in solid silver or gold plated. The pieces are skilfully finished with a polished or matte surface. If you’re interested in other metals and finishes, please e-mail us, info@meta-studio.co.uk.

ABOUT THE STUDIO
Meta- is a thoughtful jewellery studio run by designers Jess Jones and Julia Georgallis. The studio combines old with new, fast with slow and digital with analogue, working with high tech production processes and artisanal makers to create meaningful, bespoke jewellery collections. 

 

OUR STORY 

Julia Georgallis and Jess Jones have been firm friends since they met in 2007 while studying Product & Furniture Design at Kingston University. Their first collection, TIME, was designed in 2009 in response to a university brief which set the task of combining the ancient process of lost wax casting with the relatively new process of rapid prototyping, or 3D printing as it’s more commonly known.   

They quickly realised that 3D printing made it possible to cast unique pieces and, although jewellery wasn’t a common outcome for students on their course, it was obvious that a bespoke jewellery system was a perfect answer to the brief. Jewellery often marks a significant moment or memory and by creating custom-made pieces where the shape is influenced by an individual’s special date, this sentimentality is enhanced. With a specially designed algorithm to translate data to dimensions, the first object in the collection was created – TIME rings. After graduating the pair exhibited the rings during London Design Festival 2010 and went on to expand the range and sell jewellery for a couple of years.  

Then, as often happens, life got in the way - Jess went on to have a successful career in marketing for London based design brands Skandium, Richard Brendon Studio and SCP and Julia freelanced as a product designer, graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2014, before retraining as a baker and starting a career in the food and hospitality industry.  

In 2019, ten years after first designing together, they decided to relaunch their jewellery as part of a wider studio concept, with more ideas on how to create thoughtful, bespoke pieces. Meta Studio is forged with friendship and a joint understanding of what jewellery should not only look like, but also feel like to wear.   

 

COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY  

Meta is a slow jewellery brand. We make bespoke pieces that are made to order, which means that we don’t produce any waste or unnecessary stock. All of our pieces are produced in Birmingham’s prestigious jewellery quarter by skilled, heritage artisans and technologists. We do not invest in unsustainable materials or work practices.
