Olivia Taylor is a designer and jewellery-maker based in Scotland. In 2019, after graduating from Glasgow School of Art, she created a brand of timeless, contemporary jewellery, translating her love for design and fine jewellery into a new form of statement pieces.
Inspired by stories of travel and architecture, her work reinterprets hard concrete shapes into softs plays of light, landscape and sky. Using traditional techniques, she brings geometric shapes and striking line intersections together into organic, wearable pieces.
Vivid treatment of texture and colour contrasts with refined, linear structures; further exploring the harmony between nature and architecture in Olivia`s work.
Each piece of jewellery created by Olivia is handmade using ethically sourced precious metals. She is interested in the metamorphose of materials, the transient nature of formed metal; how an old silver brooch can be transformed into a molten ingot and further reshaped into a new pair of earrings.
Olivia is environmentally conscious in her design process and recycles every piece of offcut. She transforms them into new pieces, giving the piece new purpose, creating very little waste.
