ISABELLE CAPITAIN GOLDSMITH & STONE SETTER
Isabelle is originally from Germany and now designs and makes contemporary fine jewellery from her studio in the heart of London’s jewellery quarter Hatton Garden. After finishing her apprenticeship in Germany she moved to the UK where she has worked as a goldsmith and micro setter behind the scenes for various designers in Kent and London for a number of years.
Her work is strongly influenced by the skills she gained in her traditional apprenticeship focusing on hand making modern jewellery to the highest standards and her micro pavé training under master goldsmith and setter Eberhard Mach.
The combination of traditional skills during her apprenticeship and the use of modern technology during the diamond setting training have influenced Isabelle’s designs as much as her fascination with all things Bauhaus.
Simple understated elegance is key to Isabelle’s designs, as is the use of precious metals and high quality gemstones. To ensure consistency from design to finished jewellery, every piece is hand-made by Isabelle, including all setting work.
Isabelle’s formal design language makes use of the clean lines and minimalism intrinsic to Bauhaus artists, while the making of the pieces is guided by the concept of ‘form follows function’:
As well has having a strong, timeless design, it is important for jewellery to be crafted to the highest standards and long lasting.
She strongly believes that the care and attention given throughout the consultation and making process does not stop when a piece leaves her studio. Regular check-ups and aftercare are another essential part of the lifelong relationship with your jewellery and its designer.
Working in silver, gold, palladium and platinum, Isabelle creates bespoke commissions including engagement and wedding rings.
