About Alison Moore

Alison Moore’s approach to jewellery design is organic and refreshingly non-conformist.

She is led by the heart, rather than by market trends, with her inspiration coming from many different sources – childhood memories, walks on the beach, moods, emotions, and the textures, forms and colours of nature, especially underwater.

As a former geology student, Alison has a particular appreciation for the characteristics of different minerals, so it’s natural that gemstones should feature so strongly in her work.  She also enjoys experimenting with different silversmithing techniques to produce jewellery that’s tactile and engaging.

Unique Gemstones

And when Alison’s not creating beautiful jewellery, chances are you’ll find her with her camera, looking for more inspiration underwater in the ocean around her island homeland.

Whilst diverse and distinctive, all of her collections are connected by the themes of purity and practicality, reflecting a desire to create pieces that are simple, wearable and affordable.

As timeless as it is contemporary, Alison’s jewellery subtly reflects the character of its creator, while at once becoming part of your own life story.
