MEET THE MAKER

Charlotte Penman

We’ve partnered with New Zealand jewellery designer Charlotte Penman Jewellery to launch an exclusive range of pieces for the Ancient Greeks exhibition. Charlotte’s unique works fuse inspirations from Grecian antiquity and modern sentiments, using hand picked gemstones, high quality chains and charms.

Inspired by nature, 20th century icons, antiquity jewels and dreamy Balearic beaches, Charlotte works with precious metals and a range of gemstones. She has studied design, fine art, film and jewellery making and brings all these elements together to create unique, thoughtful and feminine collections.

Gemstones are featured throughout many of her ranges. Found in exotic locations from Madagascar to Alaska, from the Czech Republic to New Mexico, each gemstone has its own story. Charlotte and her assistants love to work with them, combining them with gold and silver to create new forms that enhance their natural beauty. Each Charlotte Penman piece is designed with love and to compliment the female form. Her jewellery can be worn as armor, amulet and keepsake.
