Ruth Ball gained her BA Hons degree in Jewellery Design from Middlesex University, London.
During her studies she achieved top prizes in the Royal Society of Arts Award and The Platinum Competition, more recently she was granted a British Society of Enamellers Bursary to study large scale enamelling in 2009 and achieved Commended in the Goldsmiths Craftsmanship and Design Council Awards in 2011.

Experience as a part time lecturer in Further & Higher Education, coupled with years of practice in trade enamelling, has meant that she has accomplished a wide skill base. Keen to pass on her knowledge, she was commissioned by publishers A&C Black to write a book about enamel techniques and she is now recognised internationally as being practiced in a variety of enamel methods.  

The extent of her making spans contemporary jewellery, fine silverware and unique artworks for public or private display. Observation of colour and light in everyday environments sustains her modern design style. Moreover her art based, painterly approach to enamelling underpins the elegant sense of beauty in her work. Today the conception of one off pieces and limited edition ranges are her prime focus.

Her innovative pieces carry an individual style, highlighting enamel as a medium for contemporary design & applied art.
The observation of colour and light in everyday environments sustains her modern design style.

Her collectable enamels are exhibited nationally and internationally and are available via specialist galleries
