Welcome to Simcha Gallery, at the magnificent Corn Exchange, in the heart of Leeds.
April 2019 Update
A new, much improved website is being built behind the scenes, and will be live in the next few weeks.
In the meantime I am adding new jewellery products daily.
"Thank you Stephen. I absolutely love my new ring. It means so much more to have my original rings upcycled in my home town. Your professionalism from start to finish has been outstanding. I can not recommend you highly enough. Many Thanks again. Rachel " Rachel Bardsley, April 2019
We are both a contemporary craft gallery and the working studio of jewellery designer Stephen Roper and textile artist Anne Roper.
Stephen has been making contemporary silver and gold jewellery for over 14 years. His collections are inspired by nature, and explore organic textures and forms. He can be commissioned to make a unique piece jewellery, which can can also be upcycled from your own unworn jewellery into a fresh new design.
Clothing accessories, art cards, mixed media artworks and jewellery are all made by Anne in the gallery. She loves multi-layered colours and textures, combining metallic threads, paint, embroidery, felt and crochet. Anne was one of the original stallholders in 1970's Camden Lock, and supplied London stores including Liberty and Selfridges.
Ceramics by leading UK designer makers are also stocked in the gallery
At present we are taking orders by telephone/email. Call us on 07967 750 588 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Stephen undertakes jewellery commissions.
The process is simple. After an initial discussion Stephen will provide you with several sketches free of charge for you to choose your preferred design. A collection date is agreed, usually four to five weeks ahead, and a 50% deposit paid. Prior to the setting of any stones Stephen will ask you to call in for a fitting of the jewellery.
Celebrate your love with unique rings designed by Stephen Roper
"I commissioned Stephen to make an Engagement ring for me. He handled the commission with great skill and care, spending time with me to agree the precise details of the design, and was then able to make the ring within a tight time frame."
Upcycle your unworn gold jewellery into a new piece of Stephen Roper jewellery.
Jewellery of sentimental value which has remained unworn can be re-fashioned. By not contributing to the ongoing extraction of gold ore, recycling is good for the planet. It is also a cost effective alternative to commissioning a ring made of new gold.
