Alice Cicolini’s jewellery represents a melting pot of global influences. Based in London, the Central Saint Martins-trained jeweller has her designs hand crafted in Jaipur, India, by artisans who are expert in the meenakari enamelling technique. This practice, which originated in Persia before becoming established in Jaipur, sees vibrant enamel colors infused into engraved gold jewellery.
In the case of Alice’s designs, delicate leaf and floral patterns are etched into the gold in vibrant shades of enamel, which is made from a mixture of pigmented glass and metal. Alice takes inspiration for the patterns from a host of art and design elements, from Japanese kimonos to Italy’s Memphis Group of designers.
Unique, statement stones are another dazzling feature of Alice’s work, from hand-carved polki diamonds, with their charmingly irregular surfaces, to green chrysoprase, green and pink tourmalines and grey South Sea pearls.
Exuberant and magical – and with a very human touch – Alice Cicolini’s designs are true head-turners.
