“I collect inspiration. I find it in the changing seasons, in the fog-filtered light of San Francisco, and in the patterns and repetitions of language and nature”.
Classically trained in both goldsmithing and fine art, Tura Sugden has a unique approach to fine jewelry design and a traditionally routed execution. Having completed seven years of apprenticeships she now operates a modern atelier, melding old world goldsmithing with a contemporary point of view.
Using generations old, hand building techniques, each setting is crafted from solid gold. Rolled, pulled, extruded, sawn, filed, sanded, soldered and cut until each stone has a protective space. The studio produces only one-of-a-kind and small production collections, with an emphasis on sustainable and responsible practices.
Inspired by the bones of construction, classic silhouettes are redefined with signature settings and uniquely curated gemstones. It is a collection of essentials and heirlooms, romance and luxury, built by hand and born of tradition, thoughtfully produced using recycled gold and ethically sourced diamonds.
