Founder and owner Kristina Smith studied Design and Jewellery at the London Metropolitan University, Sir John Cass Faculty of Art.
Ark Jewellery offers stunning handmade jewellery with a commitment to ethical production. Kristina Smith, founder, and designer is based in Kent, the United Kingdom and uses recycled or fair-trade materials with sustainable histories to produce limited edition artisan jewellery that she hopes will be passed down generations.
The collections are influenced by travel, culture and symbols transferring her stories, feelings and experiences into the jewellery pieces she creates.
Being intrigued by new technologies and 3D design and printing, Kristina explores the boundaries of what we can do that are perceived as precious, mixing unusual materials such as wood and fine metals, incorporating gemstones into designs that are elegantly inspired by the fragility and beauty of nature.
