Having focused on bespoke one-of-a-kind fine jewellery designs for private clients for the past three years, 2014 saw the launch of Phioro's first limited edition collections. Describing herself as a fine jewellery sculptor, Phioro's owner Clare Pardoe says she always considers a piece from all angles, which lends a three-dimensional feel to her work. "I love playing with the space within jewellery and strive to find unusual, striking forms that can be inspired by the future and ancient relics simultaneously," she says. "I fuse these forms with bold, brightly coloured gemstones, which I select carefully for their cut, colour and meaning." Citing Victoria Beckham as her ultimate style icon, Clare describes her personal style as striking, elegant and effortless. Her latest collection, Aquaray, is inspired by the effortless grace of manta rays, with a stunning blue-green palette reminiscent of the underwater world they inhabit.
