Named after a river by the same name which flows through his hometown, Toby Vernon founded The Ouze in 2021. With a background in menswear design, he developed a unique set of design references that has allowed him to experiment with alternative jewellery-making to develop the brand’s signature style – an aesthetic that celebrates imperfection, born out of his own interest in antique and heirloom jewellery that has been passed down and weathered by time.
