Hello, bonjour and guten Tag!
I’m Victoria von Stein, a creative designer, maker and illustrator at heart bringing joy, beauty and wellbeing to the world. I'm driven to develop my artistic self-expression using various materials and processes that best express a concept / theme. This informs as well my creative thinking for positive design solutions for various client projects.
I'm dedicated, focused and self-initiate art direction for projects with similar themes across a variety of mediums.
I'm mostly inspired and driven to create uplifting, positive and inspiring messages through handcrafted jewellery and delicate, intricate hand-painted illustrations using my travel experiences, the positive effect of colours and the natural environment (Biophelia) as reference.
🔹 ART PRINTS ILLUSTRATIONS
I offer limited editions Gyclée art prints on Hahnemühle archival paper. They are reproduced from my original hand-painted finely detailed, vibrant, colourful gouache illustrations communicating inspirational messages of wellbeing, colour, biophelia (love of nature) and travel. Individual commissions are welcomed! You can discover them here.

MY PROFESSIONAL TRAINING
Having studied at Camberwell College of Arts, London and worked as a Graphic Designer for various design agencies and clients (Sisley Cosmetics, Neal's Yard Remedies...) in the beauty & luxury industry for 15 years in London, I came at a turning point in my life and decided to pursue my passion for handcrafted products as well. I've naturally transferred my attention for detail, design, shapes and aesthetics to the art of jewellery design and craftsmanship. Having made jewellery and other crafts in childhood, I've rediscovered my passion later on and learned traditional silversmithing techniques at City Lit College under the tutelage of well-known jewellers.
I was selected and took part in The Goldsmith's Centre's Setting Out Programme, a business development course for jewellers in London in 2015/16 and set up my own company in 2017 and I am now a resident there.
I keep designing, painting and illustrating to practice my craft in both industries.
In future I intend to develop my designs on various surfaces and would love to collaborate within the sustainable lifestyle, interiors and fashion/stationary industries.
Being French/German and spending my childhood in Germany, the alps of Austria and France and my professional education in England, I developed a love for cultures, crafts and the countryside.
In a fast-paced, mass-produced consumer world, I felt the need to return to the beauty & value of craftsmanship and bring artistic and meaningful value to this world communicating visually through colours, textures, shapes and mediums that inspire me.
