Kristina graduated from London Metropolitan University The Cass, Sir John Cass Faculty of Art in Design, Jewellery and Silversmithing. After a long gap in pursuing another career, she set up the Ark Jewellery in 2019 to contribute to the movement towards sustainable jewellery.
Ark Jewellery is based in Kent, UK and uses recycled or fair-trade materials with sustainable histories to produce limited edition artisan jewellery that she hopes will be passed down generations. Kristina loves working with a variety of materials using the latest technologies such as laser engraving and 3D printing and casting.
In the Silver Leaf Collection, Kristina delves into the relationship between nature, plants and women. The design of the Arabesque Collection is inspired by Middle Eastern Architecture. Decorations make frequent use of geometric patterns and are often built on combinations of repeated squares and circles which she uses to create intricate patterns etched and painted on sustainable wood.
Ark Jewellery offers stunning handmade jewellery with a commitment to ethical production and packaging.
All services I use to create the collections are within 20 miles of my Kent studio. Your purchase is supporting other ethical and sustainable local businesses in the South East.
All jewellery is gift packed using boxes and materials with sustainable elements to create excitement and delight the customer.

"It is beautiful - just as it looked on the site. It came quickly, it was well packaged, and I am delighted with it. The woman who will receive this for her birthday - if we can leave our houses - will adore it. Thank you so much - stay healthy!"
