About me
Ayesha Sureya Patel is a Jewellery Artist and 3D designer from London whose work is inspired by the beauty but also tangled identities around her diasporic identity. She graduated from the Jewellery Design course at Central St. Martins (2018) and has continued working in London since; now in her Studio in Stoke Newington. Her practice explores her cultural identity and entails researched theologies and symbolism to help draw connections between jewellery and the self, formality of adornment, and the narrative of personal materials and objects in a post-colonial world.

    GRADUATE COLLECTION - CSM BA JEWELLERY DESIGN 2018 |Gold jewellery is widely symbolic in India with a lot of new jewellery presented and gifted to mark occasions like weddings. However, this jewellery is often disregarded and not worn after the occasion and so the ideals and symbolism surrounding Indian jewellery don't resonate with me as strongly. As the kitchen is a place in an Indian household which is often the heart of the home, where food is also used to mark celebrations, a lot of domestic memories I hold reside in the objects used here,
