Duxford Studios is an independent Welsh contemporary jewellery brand, hand-crafting fine jewels inspired by life, death and the journey along the way. Award winning founder, Esme Rogers Evans, celebrates Memento Mori, the Latin theory and practice of our reflection on mortality. Her pieces are instilled with an anthropological sense of human history and our inherent awareness of our time on the earth. Each jewel is a reminder of the transient nature of life and the importance of living each day to its fullest.
Esme is committed to sourcing ethical materials, working with recycled gold and silver wherever possible and hand selected gemstones from trusted and reputable suppliers. Each piece is expertly designed, crafted by hand and individually finished ensuring the highest quality. The nature of the hand made processes means that every piece is slightly different, making them one of a kind and personal to the wearer. Her contemporary heirlooms demand attention, withstand the test of time and are a necessary antidote to a world of mass production and fast fashion.
