Here, we ask designers to take a selfie and give us an inside look at their life.
Occupation: Jewelry artist.
Hometown: Accra and London.
Studio location: Hammersmith, London.
Describe what you make: I create sculptural forms inspired by the transformation of our natural habitat.
The most important thing you’ve designed to date: All my pieces are important—choosing would be like a mother having a favorite child. I am particularly proud of the ring acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum for their permanent collection.
Describe the problem your work solves: My pieces work seamlessly with the wearer rather than being overpowering.
Describe the project you are working on now: I have been working on a series inspired by the beautiful continent of Africa. I have so many ideas popping up—a majority have been in my thoughts for years and I can’t wait to bring them to life.
A new or forthcoming project we should know about: We’re designing a new and improved website which will show a lot more of my work to clients.
What you absolutely must have in your studio: Music, coffee, and great quality hazelnut chocolate.
What you do when you’re not working: I am a mother. In other words, I’m the cook, cleaner, secretary… I love to read or binge on some amazing drama when I can.
Sources of creative envy: Giovanni Corvaga, the best artist in the world.
The distraction you want to eliminate: All forms of social media.
Concrete or marble? Concrete.
High-rise or townhouse? Both. I’d like one of each.
Remember or forget? Remember. That’s how we learn in life.
Aliens or ghosts? Neither.
Dark or light? It depends…
