The Places I've visited in the last 6 years have flooded and stimulated my creativity to such and extent that I wanted to celebrate the everyday objects, interactions, things, food, people and everything else. How else but to bring honour through my jewellery to the mundane.
Living in the moment grants us the ability to observe and see things that so many take for granted or as ordinary. They may be just those things but to me they are magic. This collection contains snippets of life in Asia.
Inspiration was taken from architecture, nature, traditional medicine, mythological creatures, street scenes, people, ceremonies to name but a few.
Each design is a memory of Asia that you can carry with you and on you.
Aureate is a collection of beautiful and delicate gold and gemstone jewellery.
This collection is a playful take on the traditional Gold Jewellery. Designs are simple with a classic feel but closer inspection will show fun asymmetry and unusual shapes. Rings can be resized if needed and different stone options and designs are available upon request.

Emma Villedrouin and her family moved to Hanoï in August 2021 and was delighted to be welcomed by fellow jeweler, Ryno Spence, straight away.
Emma works in 18K yellow gold with colorful semi precious stones. She constructs one of a kind pieces and small series using hand building techniques.
Having lived in several countries, Brazil, Tunisia, Haïti, France and the United States, she has an eclectic set of influences. One thing remains consistent: her production is small and special and her patrons respond to that.
A Japanese couple introduced her to the concept of wabi-sabi- which they recognized in her work. This aesthetic prizes beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete... including asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes." She carries that ideal with her each time she goes to her bench.
Claire Underwood’s interest in jewellery was sparked by the adornment and colourful beadwork of the Maasai people in Kenya after a childhood visit.
She has collected inspiration from all over the world since then. She strives to translate the rich textures and colours she has found into wearable art. Her work is hand built from silver and 18ct gold.
She favours simple, elegant shapes and 3D forms embellished with moments of bright colour, texture and movement. She achieves this with vitreous enamel, colourful glass beads and precious gemstones attached in different ways to give movement and tactile surfaces.
