About

resourceful, eco-conscious design // finding beauty in the unexpected

We love finding beauty in the old and worn and it is this, coupled with our interest in sustainable design that led to the creation of Pica Pica Design in 2014.

Latin for magpie, the name Pica Pica reflects what we do perfectly; finding diamonds in the rough....only the diamonds aren't the conventional sort.

Finding beauty in unexpected places is our thing. From antique necklace chains to old fishing floats, we scour junk shops, vintage fairs and the wild beaches of Cornwall (which we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep) in search of unconventional treasure with which to make our jewellery and artwork.

Unlike the traditional design process which is characterised by planning, our approach works in reverse by allowing the objects to direct us. Objects that tell a story or evoke a sense of resilience - of surviving a storm against the odds - are our favourite. Old, battered things, we believe, are just more beautiful. Juxtaposing these weathered colours and textures with our clean, minimal aesthetic, we aim to create a modern context for our found items, giving them a renewed sense of purpose.

Being at the whim of 'what we can find' not only means we are kept on our creative toes but that you become the owner of a unique, lovingly considered piece of art that we hope you will treasure for many years to come.

Happy shopping!
