London-based Italian designer Alessandro Petrolati is all about beautiful craftsmanship. A trained goldsmith, he’s worked with some of Italy’s most renowned artisans during his 15 years in the industry. Alessandro’s MOTLEY collection combines exquisite detailing with a refreshingly modern simplicity. Each piece is cleverly designed to find a balance between fine and contemporary jewellery by replicating the cuts and colours of precious gem stones such as rubies, sapphires, and emeralds.

French-Egyptian designer and jeweller Coline Assade is Motley’s second young designer collaboration, having graduated from Central Saint Martins and Sarabande. Her work draws on shapes and patterns found in nature, often with an otherworldly twist. 

Coline’s first collection for Motley conjures a magical world, where nature dominates and sprites run free. Coline is as inspired by human behaviour as she is by the magical world, and finds everyday eccentricities just as fascinating as the creatures she conjures from her imagination.

French designer Estelle Dévé’s passion for design started in childhood. Inspired by her aunt who designed jewellery for Chanel under Karl Lagerfeld, Estelle set up her eponymous label in 2008 in Melbourne. A self-taught designer, Dévé is known for her experimentation with new techniques and cross-disciplinary practices.

Dévé's collection for Motley brilliantly riffs on the best of contemporary art. Inspired by 20th century artist heavy-weights, well known motifs from artists like Braque, Brancusi and Hepworth transform into gloriously wearable jewellery. Featuring charms, hoops and chunky chains, these mini-sculptures are the best kind of art collecting.

Frances Wadsworth Jones is a British Jeweller and Royal College of Art graduate. Frances lives in London, where she runs her design studio. She’s known for combining traditional craftsmanship techniques with subversive design.

The Screw You collection is a not-so-subtle rejection of the prim and proper pearls of twinsets gone by. We’d say her first Motley collection (and first time outside of high luxury) hits the nail on the head.

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.
