Ancient China developed the art of extruding metal into fine strands and coiling the strands to create fine jewellery in complex organic shapes. For centuries, these intricate decorations were subject to controlled distribution by Imperial edict, out of reach but coveted by European royalty in the first centuries after contact with China.
Today, the traditional handcraft skills of ancient Chinese jewellery are in danger of being forgotten. Elements was created by energetic young designers in the UK and China with a simple mission: to give the world access to ancient Chinese craftsmanship before it is lost forever.
Elements jewellery makes ancient Chinese craftsmanship accessible through innovative, wearable, modern designs made with traditional skills. Our jewellery is beautiful, ethically made, and rich in culture and history. Be proud to display your knowledge, sensitivity, and connection with the Ancient Orient.
