“For me, making jewelry is the quiet study of a stone. Tilting it to the light, feeling it in your palm and listening to its story.” - Pippa Small
Human rights activist, anthropologist, humanitarian—Pippa Small is a true polymath. The London-based jewelry designer has been putting her own stamp on the jewelry industry since she began designing her bohemian, gem-laden creations 20 years ago. Pippa originally trained as an anthropologist, living with indigenous tribes such as the Kalahari Bushmen. A knack for designing jewelry led her to pursue an alternate career. Pippa now has two boutiques, one in London and one in Los Angeles and combines her passions for jewelry and humanitarian work through her work with Survival International and Turquoise Mountain, training craftsmen in war-ravaged locations such as Kabul to help restore their heritage of artisanship. In 2013, Queen Elizabeth II awarded her the MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for raising awareness of ethical jewelry practices around the world.
This dazzling drop earring exudes a hint of the exotic. We love the natural striations in the rutilated quartz. Its neutral hue means it goes with everything in your wardrobe.
