Jeanne Marell designs and makes minimalist jewellery with a twist from her studio in London, alongside a successful career in product design. Apart from jewellery, Jeanne’s portfolio includes Cadillac and Hyundai interiors, Hewlett Packard laptops, Nokia phones and Samsung products, amongst others.
Jeanne Marell believes in creating unique, enduring designs. Her pieces are precious objects with a style that lasts beyond the next fashion trend. They often speak to people as they recognise the concept behind the design, but are surprised to see its unique interpretation into jewellery. Forms are often combinations of simple geometries, and each design combines two materials or finishes in an unexpected way. They reveal their intricate detailing to those who take a closer look.
Jeanne Marell produces work in gold and silver, and often combines these with non-precious materials such as wood, perspex and nylon. Jeanne is committed to ethical studio practices and uses Fairtrade gold and silver wherever possible. All pieces containing precious metal are hallmarked at the London Assay Office.
The following characteristics make Jeanne Marell’s jewellery unique:
– Minimalist design aesthetic, emphasising materiality in new, playful ways
– Timeless design – enduring styles that last beyond fashion trends
– Meticulously designed pieces, executed with high attention to detail and craftsmanship
– Ethical approach to sourcing precious metals and a sustainable approach to studio practices
