Align Jewellery is created by Kate McLaughlin from her studio in Perth. Each piece of jewellery is handmade and is an expression of Kate’s architectural background.
Kate started her creative career with architecture, studying at Edinburgh College of Art and practicing across Scotland. The influence of this is heavily felt in her jewellery designs. Drawing on her architectural background for skills and design methods; Kate creates striking geometric pieces of wearable architecture.
By bringing together architecture and jewellery Align designs are minimal, striking and sculptural wearable art. With a pared back and un-compromising aesthetic, Align Jewellery is often gender neutral and strives to strike the perfect balance of simple and unexpected.
Kate uses architectural drawing techniques, as well as 3D modelling and printing during the design process and hand makes finished pieces in silver and gold. The results are a selection of bold, minimal and simple pieces. These are pared-back statements that are open to interpretation in how they are worn and styled.
