Wendy Ramshaw has been given Commander of the British Empire status by The Queen for her service to the Arts and is recognised as one of the world's finest jewellers. She's particularly wellknown for her trademark invention: the multiple ring set, often set with multi-coloured stones, mounted on a sculptural stand.

Initially inspired by the romance and beauty of machines, space-age technology and the structures and rhythms of nature, Ramshaw designed the New Millennium Gold Medal for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, incorporating nanocrystalline diamonds. Since then, she has increasingly turned to thematic expressions including the Picasso's Ladies, Room of Dreams and Prospero's Table collections. The latter entered the permanent collection of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts in 2007.
