About the maker

Rhiannon Palmer is a London based jewellery designer whose signature style combines non-precious, industrial materials with refined precious metals. Through the creation of unique, hand cast concrete jewellery, Rhiannon aims to show others just how tactile and beautiful concrete can be.

'Concrete is too often thought of as a harsh industrial material, but it has such versatility as a creative medium. It has this amazingly tactile quality with the ability to be both rough and smooth'
