About Emma Knight

Anchor 1

I have always been drawn to beauty in all its forms, and I believe that jewellery is one of the most personal and intimate ways to express oneself.


Born in County Down, I studied Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art London, after winning a scholarship from the All Irland Scholarship fund. It was in Art College that  I honed my awareness of aesthetics, colour, composition, and design.

Shortly after graduating, while living on the island of Menorca, I discovered my love for jewellery. I started experimenting with laser cutting then eventually swapped skills with a friend to learn how to work with silver.

The natural world has always been a great source of inspiration for me, and the Mediterranean land and colorscape have had a profound influence on my work.

Today, I am still based close to the med, in Barcelona. My passions for Art, design and the natural world are tied together to create what i see as mini sculptures to be worn and shared with the world. Every Piece is made by me in my home studio.
