Aside from being a jewellery designer, Emily also works as the Head of Embellishment Design for Fiorucci. She designs six Ready to Wear collections a year across several collection categories. However, her bold and brilliant collection for MOTLEY is a classic Robson riff on Egyptian iconography, featuring jackals, sphinxes and torques.
Cult British designer Hannah Martin creates contemporary jewellery with a rebellious edge. A Central Saint Martins graduate, she perfected her craft working under some of the world’s most renowned jewellers in Paris. Hannah considers jewellery to be the perfect combination of art and design, and therefore by mixing things up and questioning gender roles, she designs all her jewellery to be non-gender specific. Hannah’s collection brings a flash of grown-up, androgynous cool to the MOTLEY stable.
