Kirsten Manzi is a Dundee based jewellery designer and maker, inspired by architectural elements and bold geometric forms.
After graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design with a degree in Jewellery and Metal Design, Kirsten travelled and developed her skills working in a local jewellery repair workshop, where she gained knowledge in design development, manufacturing and repairs. Kirsten began designing and making her own jewellery and launched Kirsten Manzi Jewellery Design in 2015.
Kirsten designs through making, with many pieces unfolding themselves in the workshop rather than in sketchbooks. With a focus on shape, line and structure Kirsten transforms the aesthetics of the built-up urban environment into delicate, structural silver jewellery pieces. Kirsten has showcased her jewellery across the UK at exhibitions including the prestigious New Designers, The Barbican and Lesley Craze Gallery in London. She also participates in a number of Pop-Up events across Scotland. You can find out about her latest events and exhibitions here.
As well as her own designs, Kirsten works with clients to create limited edition and one-off commissions and enjoys collaborating with individual clients and other creatives.
