Ark Jewellery by Kristina Smith
Ark Jewellery offers stunning handmade jewellery with a commitment to ethical production.
Kristina Smith, founder, and designer is based in Kent, the United Kingdom and uses recycled or fair-trade materials with sustainable histories to produce limited edition artisan jewellery that she hopes will be passed down generations.
The collections are influenced by nature, travel, culture and symbols transferring her stories, feelings and experiences into the jewellery pieces she creates.
Kristina Says: “Art without a story is meaningless. But as all good art, my pieces give you room to discover your own emotions, connections and weave them into a story that ultimately makes them part of your life.”
