CIARA BOWLES

sumptuary laws were made to be broken

Ciara's journey towards being a jewellery designer started from a very early age. Making things and understanding how things are made was always a fascination. By the age of 13 she had gathered together a collection of tools and had started making jewellery out of wire and drinks cans. After completing her training as a jeweller in 2012, she went on to work in the jewellery industry for world renowned jewellery brands and fashion houses - finding her feet in the London Jewellery district of Hatton Garden. 

Ciara launched her first fine jewellery collection in 2018. Whilst ensuring that the jewellery is ethically produced with a sense of consciousness, it is important that the products are human made – a quality that is becoming more and more valuable within this digital age.  Each piece of jewellery is created as an individual - ready to be made into authentic future heirlooms with stories of their own.

Ciara says; 'Being brought up in London's East End, my tastes in colours and aesthetics have formed through being surrounded by a multitude of cultures, historical legends and the urban city. Inspired by the patterns and forms that I see in my native environment, I strive to create intricate fine jewellery that are luxuriously exciting and imbued with a sense of playfulness. Using colourful stones and the ancient technique of lost wax casting, the jewellery combines the old and the new – and will hopefully stand the test of time.'
