Romilly Saumarez Smith was born in London in 1954 and attended Camberwell School of Art and Crafts from 1975 to 1978 to study paper conservation and subsequently bookbinding. She went on to become the first female union member and forwarder at Londonís famed Zaehnsdorf Bindery and has since had a career as one of Britainís most highly acclaimed bookbinders.

In the 1990s she began to use metal more frequently in her binding, gradually turning her attention to making jewelry.
