Petra de Souza Thomson
Petra studied Environmental Science and during her studies she became very aware of the state of the seas and how saltwater cultured pearls could reflect this by their sensitivity to pollution and changes in temperature.
This interest in pearls opened doors to her fascination in stones, gems and freshwater/saltwater cultured pearls. She has talked to many experts and importers of pearls and gems and her passion has grown in to designing her own jewellery using the natural beauty of the materials to create pieces.
Petra combines pearls and semi-precious stones with sterling silver. She is currently exploring colours, textures, pearl hues and tones and how they can be used to create striking and modern jewellery.
Her collection contains pieces which can be worn on all occasions and some that are specifically for those occasions when you want to stand out from the crowd.
