About

Welcome to iana for exclusive and affordable handmade jewellery from our workshop near Canterbury and inspired by the coast and county of Kent.

iana jewellery is the venture of husband and wife team Anna and Ian Caird.

Our venture into jewellery design developed in magnitude as we discovered the delight of combining our interests in art, design and visual communication. We found how enjoyable it is to immerse ourselves in the world of jewellery making. Anna began first, making jewellery with semi-precious beads and Ian followed, inspired by their beautiful composition. With the allure of precious metals and stones adding amazing possibilities, the desire to learn the craft of the goldsmith's profession was jointly shared and seemed inevitable.

'iana' jewellery seeks to render inventive interpretations of the shapes and forms found in the natural world which are the genesis for our inspiration. Anna combines metal and stones in a way that creates exciting relationships with an empathy for their belonging together. Her jewellery is distinctive, charismatic and aptly described as wearable art. Ian likes the tangible nature of jewellery as a three dimension form of his earlier work, and its potential to suggest, and act, as metaphor by possessing significant meaning for its owner and wearer.

We work from home in our workshop which is situated in the Kent countryside, between the famous City of Canterbury and the delightful medieval town of Sandwich, United Kingdom.

Anna has a background in primary school teaching, is currently a head teacher. Besides making jewellery, Anna has a keen interest in calligraphy, enjoys many fields of art and draws many of her inspirations from the natural world.

Ian has a background in education also. Most recently as a lecturer in further education and previously in higher and adult education too. This has been founded upon many years of experience in commercial photography, graphics and media production, enabling him to direct his interest in the aesthetics of visual communication to three dimensional design in the form of jewellery.
