Pippa Small is a brand founded on the belief that the art of jewellery making can enhance lives, help alleviate poverty and protect precious traditions. Small empowers crafts people around the world in a bid to reverse the exploitation historically associated with the gem industry.
Her design aesthetic is rough and organic; inspired by ancient, tribal jewellery and the harmonious shapes found in nature, working with the natural form of each stone. The majority of jewellery is hand-made in India, employing local crafts people and reducing the carbon footprint by utilising locally sourced materials. Proceeds from the mainline collection allow humanitarian projects and employment opportunities to develop in Afghanistan and Myanmar. Small’s impact is internationally recognised and she was awarded an MBE by The Queen in 2013.
