Karen Dell’Armi Contemporary Jewellery
I love experimenting with precious metals, especially silver, to create tactile, interesting pieces that invite the wearer to engage with them. I love clean, contemporary designs, often geometric and sculptural with unusual, organic surface patterns and textures. My pieces are inspired by everyday emotions and situations as well as the beautiful natural world we live in. My Perseverance Range was inspired by battles with ill health 3 years ago, my Serenity Range was inspired by Buddhist singing bowls, and my new Hope Range was inspired by my charity climb to the top of Mount Kilimanajaro in January 2010. Such a personal challenge but it was incredibly humbling and amazing to see flora survive at such high altitude.
