Behind the scenes of Cities of Gold

'Les Mystérieuses Cités d'Or' -trans. 'The Mysterious Cities of Gold'- was my absolute favourite animation as a child. It follows three friends on their journey to the New World to find the lost cities of gold. I wanted to be Zia (the girl of the trio), I wanted to wear her sun medallion and I wanted to find the mysterious cities of gold.

One out of three wishes granted. I came home with a jewellery-making kit on one of many crafternoons and my heart skipped a beat - I couldn't put the pliers down, I needed more beads, and yes it's 4am but I'm not tired. I had found my very own cities of gold, a new life handed to me in a pink, star printed paper bag. The brand and Etsy shop were born shortly afterwards, fuelled by an untameable urge to create and countless cups of tea and coffee (milk, no sugar thank you).

Cities of Gold celebrates fresh design, individuality, prettiness and craftmanship; each shiny piece of jewellery is carefully handmade, hand-packaged and hand-delivered to the post office (by a very happy me!).
I work from my lovely flat in Edinburgh and a friendly metal workshop situated at the heart of a local art centre - no better place to mingle and be inspired!

My creations combine influences from geometry, minimalistic design, and vintage accessories, and are brought together in a jewellery collection made of the most unusual and coveted materials. Expect vibrancy, clean lines and plenty je-ne-sais-quoi...
