Why use the Victoria Barker Consultancy?
Our consultancy is young; our creative fires burn strong. Passion and obsession mean that Victoria Barker and Associates are always experimenting with new materials and techniques.
For example: we have successfully cast and gold-plated aluminium with stunning results for the fashion industry. We have developed a method to cast complex jump-rings linked together, reducing the need for laser/soldering. We view CAD / CAM as a liberating and precision instrument.
Twenty-first century production methods combined with our trusted network of traditional specialists such as mounters, setters and polishers create the perfect environment to develop new collections or expand existing ones. Your original concept remains true and as importantly stays squarely within your time and budget constraints.
When designing and manufacturing complex, individual pieces and collections, challenges can arise, so it’s good to have a well-informed and reliable consultant on hand to navigate and smooth the bumps in the road.
When it comes to design, Victoria is uniquely qualified to offer her advice having won multiple awards, all with a view to taking a concept from the drawing board to the showroom floor, or indeed, the catwalk.
