Darte Jewellery was created in 2016 after attending evening classes in jewellery making. Having achieved a first class degree in Textile Design at the Glasgow School or Art in 2007, working in a creative and hands-on environment felt like the natural path. Dreaming up new designs and seeing them come to fruition gives me a great sense of satisfaction and I feel very privileged to be able to spend my days doing what I love. The collection is all handmade by me in my Glasgow-based studio, using traditional silversmithing techniques as well as lost wax casting. The design inspiration ranges from understated minimalism to bold, playful and tactile, but all endeavour to encapsulate a timeless appeal and a consideration for everyday wear, always with quality at the forefront. I adhere to sustainable practices by using recycled silver and gold materials and all packaging.
