British born and based designer and maker, Emma Aitchison, has creativity running through her soul. Emma is no happier than when she is busy making, tinkering and creating, using her practical thinking to produce unique and bespoke designs.
Growing up in the countryside in South West England, Emma developed a firm attachment to nature. After many years working in the creative industry in London Emma decided to turn her passions for design and protecting the natural world into a business. In 2016 Emma Aitchison Jewellery was born – a conscious jewellery brand that produces designs inspired by the natural world, and which shares real messages about our world and the impact we have on it.
Emma’s passion for nature and life in all forms is the key source of inspiration for her designs. Using the weather as a starting point, Emma aims to unearth the beauty of varying weather forms to celebrate the fleeting moments weather can create, hoping to share the concept that weather is the only universal language.
Each piece of jewellery in the Emma Aitchison collection is handmade in the uk, made by a combination of traditional, modern and adapted techniques to create individual and unique items. Emma has her own method and technique for making jewellery – by replicating a particular weather force in an abstract way, resulting in truly unique pieces.
The natural world is not only the main source of inspiration for Emma, but her passion for protecting the planet has led her to run an ethical and sustainable business. Emma’s aim is to respect the planet and its people from start to finish, with no element of the jewellery making process being jeopardised; quality and style still remain, along with a clear conscious.
