Founder

Kiya Corrales

Kiya was born in Brazil to English and Peruvian parents who travelled the world making a living through various handicrafts. She spent her early childhood in Peru, before moving to rural mid Wales.

This diverse heritage, her love of exploration and her training in contemporary design at the Birmingham School of Jewellery have all shaped her creative style. Her early exposure to ancient South American art and architecture is evident in Kiya’s creations through her use of geometry, pattern and symbolism. For example, the sun is a central element in many of her designs as it was for the Inca craftspeople who worshipped the sun god Inti.

Kiya’s fascination for ancient societies not only influences her designs but also her enthusiasm for the discipline. Jewellery has always been a part of the human experience, in fact the oldest known jewellery pieces were created by neanderthals over 115,000 years ago. This shows that throughout time individuals have expressed themselves by wearing beautiful handmade objects. These pieces become an extension of us and often outlive us, leaving behind a physical representation of a life, a moment in time, or an intense emotional connection.

“It is a huge privilege to be able to take part in the celebration of new love stories and the creation of heirlooms to be treasured by future generations.”

Wow what a find! Kiya is a delight to work with - very skilled in her craft & with an artist's eye.​She produced exactly what I asked for, keeping me informed of measurements and price options throughout the process. The quality of work is the best I've seen and I've seen a lot of rings.​ So satisfying to work directly with the maker!
