Philippa started designing in 2003 after studying "The History of Jeweller" at Sotheby's. Her work is inspired by the natural world, ancient England and our folklore. Philippa uses organic objects such as seed pods, leaves, insects and skeletons that she collects largely from the Savernake Forest, but also during her extensive worldwide travels, to inspire her jewellery pieces. Philippa produces all her jewellery in England, using highly skilled craftsmen in small workshops. She uses a variety of techniques and works mainly in gold, but also some silver, with precious and semi-precious stones sourced in Jaipur, India.
