Chie Mannami is a Japanese contemporary jewellery maker now based in Bristol. She studied Jewellery design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and later completed an MA at the Royal College of Art in 2002.
Colour and pattern are at the heart of all pieces. Fifties and sixties nature-based textiles, illustration and graphics form a significant inspiration together with a love for plants, gardening and organic forms. With resins, synthetics and silver a core material and (in recent years) – wood as well – my pieces often reflect natural landscapes and shapes.
