Disa Allsopp was born in London and grew up in Barbados. She studied jewellery in London and Edinburgh and set up her studio in London in 1996.
Her inspiration comes from Ancient jewellery such as the Egyptians, Romans, Etruscians and Columbians. 18ct gold is used to create rings, necklaces, earrings and bangles.
Disa uses traditional techniques such as forging, reticulation, and patination to produce her unique finishes to the 18ct gold and Sterling silver metals. Her travels to East Africa and origins in Barbados can be seen in her use of gemstones. Aquamarines, Golden Citrines, rich Garnets and Rubies are just a few of the stones she uses. White and coloured Diamonds are set on unique bands and rough and rare cut gemstones make Disa’s work contemporary and current .
All work is individually hand made in her London studio and bears the UK Hallmark.
