Born in Piatra Neamt, Romania, Sabina Dragusanu started making jewellery when she was only 12 years old, and what started as a hobby, soon became a passion. She moved to London in 2014 to study jewellery, and graduated from Central Saint Martins, UAL, in 2017 with a BA (Hons) in Jewellery Design. Her graduate collection ‘Contemporary Embroidery’ was awarded with ‘Best Design’ by Theo Fennell, and was selected to take part in the ‘Marzee International Graduate Show 2017’. 

Sabina’s craftsmanship turns away from conventional jewellery materials. Highly passionate about nature, her work shows the different ways in which she tries to express that. Sabina has had her work exhibited all over the world, in places such as Galerie Marzee, JOYA Barcelona, Collect London, Venice Design Week and Fashion Week Brooklyn.

" Being an avid nature lover, my biggest nightmare is currently a reality: pollution, environmental emergency, bush fires. There are different types of pollution and different degrees to what we can control, but I believe that we can do more than we think. I am making changes in my lifestyle everyday and hope that every little thing builds up to something bigger. I express that in my works and I try to encourage others to take more action as well. Lately I’ve been exploring the different ways of upcycling plastic; there is so much of it that goes into the ‘recycling’ bin and ends up being sent to landfill somewhere in Asia. I believe that we need to use more of what we have and create less of what we don’t have.’ - Sabina Dragusanu
