Kate Dumbleton Jewellery

 


Lotus Collection
Kate, born in Cardiff, has been fascinated by jewellery making from an early age. While still at school she learnt silver jewellery techniques from a local jeweller. After exploring jewellery design and art during travels in Japan she went to London to study formally. In 1993 she graduated from London Guildhall University with a Degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing. Kate set up business soon after and quickly drew positive attention from press, stylists and international buyers.
Her work has featured in fashion and national press such as Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Sunday Times and The Observer. It has been worn on the Oguri catwalk and by Kylie Minogue. Collections have been stocked worldwide in such prestigious stores as Harrods, Fenwick, Paul Smith, Colette in Paris, Barneys New York, Agete and United Arrows in Japan.
After some time designing for other companies, including High Street names, she is back in Wales and re-launching her label with four new collections on this site.
Described as 'eclectic' in an Observer A-Z Fashion list, Kate is inspired by art, nature, history and global cultures.
Kate also works as a freelance designer/jewellery trend consultant, currently for Clogau Gold. Past clients have included Freedom @Topshop and Next.
