    "Drawing on ancient Burmese symbols, Buddhist iconography, and the natural world of this beautiful south East Asian country for inspiration, The Turquoise Mountain Foundation, set up a new project in Myanmar in 2015, providing meaningful livelihood skills and much needed employment in one of Asia’s poorest countries. Each piece is hand made in Myanmar by artisans trained in traditional goldsmithing techniques." - Pippa Small

     



    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.

     

    We love Pippa Small’s pendant necklaces on gold cord, whether stacked or worn alone. These hold a special place in our hearts knowing that the artisans that crafted each piece were part of the designer’s Turquoise Mountain initiative.
