“I fell in love with jewellery early, playing with my mother’s Tibetan carved beads and my grandmother’s heirloom treasures. The first piece of jewellery that I was given as a child was an ancient carved bird from the archaeological site at Taxila. I still have that bird - it encapsulates my passion for jewellery and for antiquity. Initially I took a degree in history, but ultimately I was drawn to train in fine jewellery and worked for a number of British jewellery houses."
It was studying for an MA at St Martins that clarified Flora’s design direction. "I began to explore my family’s links with Asia and the East India Company and to unite my passion for the past with my love of exotic precious stones and dark opulent pearls. My designs draw on my family heritage and the opulence and glamour of my ancestor’s travels. They offer an escape from the everyday and invite you to explore an evocative world of luxurious jewels, seduction and romance.”
"My vision is to empower women, to recognize their success and accomplishment – and to balance their femininity with a boldness, and an inner strength. Jewellery has a unique ability to connect at a deep level and for that reason many of my designs contain an inner symbolism – to inspire and embolden the wearer.”
Flora has exhibited at Paris and New York Fashion Weeks and has won a number of accolades from Professional Jeweller Hot 100 NexGem, to selection for IJL’s KickStart, EC One Unsigned competition, New Designers One Year On and a number of Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Awards.
