De Anna Kiernan Jewellery

Designer

The Goldsmiths Company

Biography:

Bermudian Jeweller De Anna trained as a Goldsmith from the age of seventeen prior to studying Architecture at Central Saint Martins. Her training in architecture further inspired her passion for creating in three-dimensional form, experimenting with scale from the micro in jewellery to the macro in architecture. She further explored this overlap between the two disciplines during her Jewellery MA at The Cass where she was able to draw on her multidisciplinary background and skill set in creating her exquisite jewellery.

Influenced by the clean lines of modernist architecture and the elegance of the female form, this jewellery embodies a minimalist aesthetic with a combination of delicately textured finishes in contrast with highly polished surfaces creating an effortlessly elegant display. Her signature free form lines and dramatic geometric angles create bold statement pieces, forming a luxurious collection of jewellery including rings, pendants, necklaces and earrings.
