How would you describe yourself in one sentence?

I’m a modern romantic that enjoys the world but is only moved by the poetry of the unseen.

 

 

What’s your most cherished jewel in your personal collection?

My grandmother’s 1920’s diamond drop earrings. My grandmother was a woman beyond her time. She was a charming soul that was fiercely independent with incomparable wit and deep kindness. When I wear her earrings, I feel a sense of invincibility for the day ahead of me.

 

 

Who is your muse when you design?

I am inspired by unapologetically strong women with open hearts who leave behind traces of love and light wherever they go.

 

 

What’s your favourite saying or quote?

‘Enlightenment is when the wave realizes it’s the ocean”

- Thich Nhat Haan

 

 

If you were a gemstone, what gemstone would you be and why?

Indicolite Tourmaline. It’s deep teal colours remind me of the ocean which can be vast, mysterious and deeply connected to life itself.

 

How would you describe yourself using song lyrics ? 

Beautiful Day by Ryan Huston

What’s your favourite jewel in the current collection of B.P de Silva?

Our Jazz Age Morganite Earrings were gorgeous with our signature baguette and diamond halo. There’s a sensitive balance of the structured Art Deco style that paired well with the feminine and soft beautiful blush pink Morganite.

 

How would your kids describe you?

I’m not only their mum but also a friend that they can share their thoughts with.

 

What’s your favourite movie?

The Shawshank Redemption

 

If you were a gemstone, what gemstone would you be and why?

With its different sunset-like hues, I feel the Padparadscha Sapphire can reflect my different emotions from the brighter hues when I’m happy and excited to the more saturated hues when I’m passionate and focussed.

 

How would you describe yourself?

Reserved but Friendly.

 

What's the most important quality for a Master Craftsman?

An attitude of perseverance.

What is your favourite hobby?

I love to garden.

 

What motivated  you to become a Master Goldsmith?

I enjoy working with my hands, so I decided to go and train as a goldsmith when I was young and have been doing this for over 30 years now.

 

If you were a gemstone, what gemstone would you be and why?

I don’t know...these are such romantic questions. What do you think I am?

(The rest of the Team agreed that William is most definitely a Blue Sheen Moonstone which expresses his gentle, understated and quiet ways.)

 

How would you describe yourself as a colour?

White. It is a balanced colour and also a great colour to pair with other colours. I also love the dreamy quality in the colour which may be subconsciously something I was inspired by my own Chinese name 洁 云 which is which means Clear Clouds.

 

What’s your favourite jewel in the current collection of B.P de Silva?

Our Lovedrops collection. It is one of the first designs that Shanya and I created. It means a lot to me and I  believe for her too.

 

Where do you draw inspiration from?

Anything NEW to me gives me lots of energy and inspiration, they can be any form really, even the weather can awaken and deepen my senses.

 

What’s your  favourite book of all time ?

“The five people You Meet in Heaven” - Mitch Albom

 

If you were a gemstone what gemstone would you be and why?

My birthstone, Opal. Every time I see an Opal, it feels like I’m looking into the entire universe! There’s so much to imagine from it’s colourful and magical appearance. It’s a gemstone that I can lose myself in completely.

 

How would you describe yourself in one word?

Happy-go-lucky.

 

What about jewellery excites you?

To me the magic is in the light from a well cut gemstone and it’s colourful wonder.

 

What’s your hidden talent?

For someone from finance, I do enjoy and think I’m pretty okay with my art.

 

Who lights you up?

Anyone really, as long as the person greets me with a sincere smile.

 

If you were a gemstone what gemstone would you be and why?

I don’t know what I would be, but I would  like to be a diamond as it is a gemstone that is well treasured and I’d like to imagine that I shine bright through life no matter what it brings.
