Fiona Paxton’s love affair with jewellery came about as an experiment. Having trained as a textile designer at London’s Royal College of Art, and with her experience working as a textile designer for fashion houses and studios, it was this experience that shaped her jewellery with textile like qualities that are now synonymous with her brand.
On what inspires her - “For me it is always about the mix of texture and materials”. A long time lover of Art-Deco and modern contemporary architecture, and her background in textiles gives her a unique position in the jewellery world. One of Paxton’s ambitions was to redesign the accessories of a modern global traveler, a goal she has ostensibly achieved with the best stores in the world and the hottest celebrities sporting her designs from Rihanna to Kate Moss.
“I love finding things on holiday or on my travels and reworking them into something modern that is not derivative, I really think that’s what people want to wear, it also makes those pieces timeless which is what jewellery is about”.
Paxton has worked tirelessly with Indian artisans since the launch of her line in 2008; this adds for her a traditional and wearable facet to her products which would otherwise remain abstract creations. “My relationship with the artisans who produce my work is incredibly important to me and I love the process of combining my very contemporary inspirations with their skills and traditions”.
