    Jewellery Designer, Research & InnovationPUSAKA
    London, United KingdomPart Time
    • I am currently working as an independent designer, advocating sustainability and innovation in traditional craftsmanship through jewellery. My practice resides at the intersection between art, design, fashion and craftsmanship. • Working closely with the local crafts community, I'm using a project-based approach to connect different craftspeople, establishing a collaborative working environment which goal is to advance their approach in design through an array of topics such as material development, design generation and product innovation. • My design practise explores how techniques found in graphic design and textile production could be implemented into jewellery. By developing a new filigree approach and artistry rooted in the traditional way of making, I am hoping to support and elevate traditional craftsmanship in this competitive machine production era, as well as inspire people to sustainable making and production method.
