Madrid artist Cristina Armesilla enjoys playing with materials in search of the best way to represent her personal experiences through forms.
In the collection “Iridiscencias” each geometric construction represents a place in her city that has been part of her development as an artist.
Making a diagram of Voronoi on a map of Madrid using these places as reference points, she obtained the necessary lines to create the irregular polygons that compose the structural base of the pieces.
The accuracy of the metal structure contrasts with the unpredictable color effects of her jewels to create a symbol of the changing and dreamlike subjective experience.
As a result, Cristina Armesilla’s jewels have a sculptural and geometric character that is reminiscent of architecture. The pieces stand out for their volume, their lightness and their color changing effect.
Anisha handcraft jewellery for the bold, confident and badass woman. All her pieces are handmade in our UK studio with love and good vibes.Anisha’s jewellery design, draws heavily from the story of her family migrating from India, to East Africa and then to the UK, re-imagining their identity in a foreign land stays with her. Her work is influenced by her hybrid heritage, finding beauty in both worlds. Growing up in London, her aesthetic was tempered not just by her own family’s history, but the diverse cultures that string together the multicultural melting pot of Britain. Her work finds itself at the juncture of all things urban and ethnic, coupling the traditional influences with a graphic, modern edge.
Anisha uses her grandmother’s collection of jewels as her archive of inspiration, ‘I adore the Indian wedding tradition of passing down jewellery and clothing from mother to daughter. Both my grandmothers collected jewellery throughout their migrant journey to the UK, as gold jewellery was seen as a women’s security, and what beautiful security it is!’ It is this essence of attachment and story telling through an heirloom, that I want my pieces to have, where in years to come a granddaughter will look through her grandmother's old photos and saw I want to wear that and keep it forever.
