The award-winning jewellery designer Emma Chapman, uses gorgeous gemstones, precious metals and ancient couture techniques, to create totally unique, regal heirloom treasure for the 21st century. Drawing on old heritage traditions, her jewellery incorporates carving, engraving, enamel, jaali and embossed work. Her signature style is haute-bohemian in flavour, exotic and glamorous. All the jewellery is exquisitely handmade by master goldsmiths and stone –cutters, in her workshops in Jaipur, and has been featured in numerous magazines including Vogue, Harpers, Tatler, Elle and Conde Nast Traveller.
All of the jewellery is handmade in family run workshops in Jaipur, India, by master goldsmiths and stonecutters, first brought here by the Maharajas and Mughals, who have been in the trade for generations. She is a strong believer in supporting local craftsmen and keeping these dying arts alive, by bringing them into the 21st Century. The craftsmen have made jewellery for all the Royal Families of Jaipur over the centuries.
The jewellery is beautiful across generations, and is a contemporary twist on classic traditions of royal adornment. Emma Chapman is inspired by and borrows from old couture techniques, to create wearable pieces of jewellery for today. The inspiration is drawn from ancient geometric motifs and patterns, in islamic, mughal, arabic, byzantine, vedic and sacred indian architecture and given a modern twist for Western wear.
This jewellery is for the luxury vagabond, someone who appreciates beautiful handmade, well-crafted jewellery. My jewellery is for the working woman, fashion mavern, cultural enthusiast, world citizen… it aspires to pull at the heart strings." Emma Chapman
