Jewelry designer Sia Taylor is a rare breed of artisan. Combining classical Fine Arts training with a holistic and sensitive approach, her designs evoke an old-world craftsmanship rarely found in modern design. After completing her studies at Newcastle University Taylor went to live in Africa, producing her first collection on a workbench under the shade of a thorn tree in the bush in Botswana. Having become fascinated and inspired by the natural forms and creatures in the African landscape, she soon realized her years of fine arts study had found their rightful direction in jewelry design. Following a decade in Ibiza, where she built her business further, the British designer is again home, having set up studio in Somerset, painstakingly turning out collections, one piece at a time.
Informed by her hands-on approach, Taylor’s designs are imbued with a natural sensuality, and pay homage to the exotic global travels of the designer. The label was originally founded with a deep reverence for the irregularity of the natural world; tiny seeds in flowers, insect larvae and eggs, grasses and leaves; a macroscopic look into an intimate place of quiet contemplation and fairytale. These days, walks around her property inspire themes for her work: a tiny beetle, an injured crow, a skeleton of a leaf, an encounter with a fox… everyday wonders provide the inspiration that informs Taylor’s approach to design.
My aesthetic is very simple and understated. The jewelry is minimal, but soft and feminine.Sia Taylor
