Handmade by Kitty Joyas
Founded in Barcelona in 2018 and now based in London, Kitty Joyas is a jewellery brand that champions slow, considered design. Led by a mission to inject personality and reimagine jewellery for the everyday, Kitty Joyas marries luxury metals, gemstones, and colourful enamel with their unique aesthetic vision. These designs are characterised by playful, modern forms, timeless romantic charm, and artisan, bohemian spirit. All pieces are designed and artisanally handcrafted in the brand's South London studio using recycled gold and silver.
Kitty Joyas was founded by Kitty Fuller, a London-based designer-maker who started her jewellery journey at seven years old, selling shell bracelets along beaches in Wales. When living in Barcelona, Kitty launched her first Kitty Joyas collection—she customised and updated old school glasses chains to create her ‘Beady Eyes’ product line. She found that she loved designing and making and the success of this debut collection fuelled her desire to finesse her craft more, so she went on to study at a jewellery school in the heart of the city.
Due to the Catalan language barrier, Kitty learnt how to make her first pair of gold hoops entirely through sight. Learning and working with the Spanish artisans gave her the freedom to develop her own unique style, without the influence and constraints of the more traditional methods used in jewellery-making in the UK.
“I learnt to be a lot freer with my tools than artisans would have been historically," says Kitty. "I’m less meticulous with measurements and allow the metals to form more naturally. That’s what gives pieces the Kitty Joyas aesthetic."
The celebration of local craftsmanship and sustainable consumption is at the heart of Kitty Joyas.
The brand only works with recycled silver and gold, which is sourced from suppliers that certify their product’s traceability. All gold plating is fair mined, meaning that the gold was mined by certified small-scale mining organisations that embrace responsible social and environmental practices.
Instead of using large factories around the world to produce their jewellery, any steps in the manufacturing process that can't be completed in-house, such as casting, polishing, and engraving, is completed by family-run businesses local to Kitty Joyas's studio. Supporting British trade, and building meaningful relationships with their suppliers is something that Kitty Joyas is incredibly proud of.
