Gabriella Parkes was born in Arabia. She is currently based in London and loves to travel when she can.
Passionate about nature and heavily influenced by her experiences whilst travelling the globe, Gabriella creates bold pieces of jewellery, typically with a bespoke or narrative twist, incorporating mythology, astronomy, magic and ancient faiths.
As an artist and jeweller/gemmologist her aim is primarily to create beautiful works of art out of extraordinary natural materials. However her interest in faith and narrative means that she tries to combine the beauty of the materials with an unusual depth of narrative that imbues each piece with its own profound essence.
Gabriella is a linguist, a Fellow of the Gemological Association of Great Britain and an Associate Diamond Grader.
Gabriella recently won the Goldsmiths top newcomer award.
