Pikaya was founded by Pinar Kaya De Biasio, a London-based designer and maker of handmade contemporary jewellery. Jewellery is a part of Pinar's heritage—almost all the men in her family are traditional jewellers. As the first female jeweller in a long line of jewellers, she aims to challenge the belief that crafting jewellery is a 'man's job'. Her jewellery career began at the Kensington and Chelsea College in London and her first collection, Positano, launched at Fuorisalone-Milan Design Week.
Pinar has a passion for metalwork and minimalist geometric forms. Her pieces are characterised by clean lines and unique textures. She enjoys observing the emotions of people around her and shapes them into jewel.
As a proud advocate of the slow fashion movement, Pinar is determined to build a conscious brand with a low environmental impact. She believes that it is important to produce timeless, quality pieces while respecting people and the environment. Through Pikaya, she focuses on reducing the impact of her work by producing small batches of jewellery and using recycled materials and packaging where possible. Pinar also chooses to collaborate with small family businesses whenever she needs to outsource a service, such as gold plating, which cannot be performed at her studio.
