New Designers On JewelStreet
Handpicked from around the globe, meet the exciting new jewellery designers to join JewelStreet.
Petros Tezapsidis is a fourth-generation Greek jewellery designer and trained gemmologist. Petros’s love for design and creation began when witnessing his grandfather transform hard pieces of metals into beautiful pieces of art as a child. He looks for three key qualities in the gemstones he incorporates into his designs - beauty, rarity, and durability.
liliCassis draws her inspiration from the passing of time - specifically vintage watches and their unique aesthetic. Each of liliCassis' pieces are made using watchmaker materials which she dismantles, cleans, and combines with precious metals to create miniature works of art with true mechanical beauty.
Much of the inspiration for Melissa Anderson’s pieces comes from the Victorian-era. She said: “For me, Victorian jewellery embodies the aspects of crafting I love the most - the obvious handmade quality, and the personal associations to each piece, making it so precious to the wearer”. Melissa likes the idea of no two designs being the same, therefore her customers will know they are wearing something unique and special.
Gemdrop's designer, Adria Roberson, creates colourfully unique fine fashion pieces. Each one is a hand-crafted combination of semi-precious gemstones, oxidised sterling silver, enamel, and wood, as well as tribal and vintage beads sourced from around the globe - all with champagne and rose cut diamond accents. Her designs are equal parts whimsical, elegant, and edgy, with pieces that work as well with denim as they do with a cocktail dress.
Louise Barnfather’s jewellery collections reflect her love of natural textures and fluid forms. Louise crafts all of her pieces and bespoke commissions personally using a variety of techniques including Waxwork, Computer Aided Design, and Lost Wax Casting. Each fine fashion accessory is hallmarked at the Birmingham Assay Office.
