Philippa Roberts was born in South Africa to a jewelry-making family. After graduating from Miami University (Ohio) in 1994 with a BFA in Metal Design she moved to CA and began her career in jewelry design. Her signature look is simple, organic shapes combined with beautifully cut gemstones. Philippa’s creativity stems from the nature around her but she also incorporates a feeling of the urban, with lines and patterns that imitate architecture and design seen around the city. She creates all of the original pieces by carving in wax or fabricating in metal.
