Ambrin is a jewellery artist and designer based in London. She creates a mixture of contemporary jewellery and jewellery themed sculptures. Through the creation of object and ornament Ambrin aims to innovate upon conventional notions of jewellery. She explores different ways of using jewellery design as a means to surprise, delight and push boundaries. Her latest body of work 'Chewing Gum Pearls' is a series of exciting new pieces, entirely inspired by Chewing Gum! Other notable works include 'Tampax Pearl' and 'Gold Bar'.
Ambrin takes great inspiration from the ancient tale of King Midas and The Golden Touch. Legend dictates that everything the King touched was turned into gold. Even the lowliest, most invaluable objects became trophies. Influenced by this fantasy, Ambrin applies her own golden touch when designing, often transforming ordinary things into luxurious jewels. Whether creating a gemstone out of beer or using baroque pearls to represent chewing gum, this artist adds a little sparkle and wonder to the overlooked and the everyday!
Ambrin graduated in 201 from Central Saint Martins with a First Class BA (Hons) Degree in Jewellery Design in 2016. She recieved various awards throughout her degree and during her final year she was granted the prestigious Swarovski Foundation Scholarship. After graduating Ambrin went on to intern for legendary jewellery designer and innovator Shaun Leane in London and also spent time working at Annoushka Manchester. Ambrin trained further in Peru under the guidance of traditional Cusqueñan jewellers and in 2019 carried out a Self- Directed Artist Residency with Arquetopia in Mexico.
