Member Profile : Chiara Bet Designs
Contemporary designer and jeweller, but old artisan at heart. Chiara creates one of a kind ,fantasy jewellery in her atmospheric moody studio in Sheffield.
In an approach similar to one of the old masters, concepts and visions first find life as illustrations on paper, to then be translated in their three dimensional form by the award winning artist through methodical hand carving of wax models. Precious and semi-precious gemstones and pearls become part of the design as further narrative device, and the use of gilding and patina as surface finish sets the mood for the work and the story behind it.
