about kirsten

Kirsten Manzi is a Dundee based jewellery designer and maker, inspired by architectural elements and bold geometric forms. With a focus on shape, line and structure, Kirsten transforms the aesthetics of the built-up urban environment into delicate, structural silver jewellery pieces.

Growing up with a paintbrush in my hand and an easel in the back garden I always knew I wanted to lead a creative life. However, my love of working in metal began at university where I studied Jewellery and Metal design at Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee. I loved the process of making and getting lost in a design, I was fascinated with turning an idea into something tangible.

After graduating I gained inspiration while travelling through Europe and developed my skills working in a local jewellery repair workshop where I gained knowledge in design development, manufacturing and repairs. I began designing and making my own jewellery and launched Kirsten Manzi Jewellery in 2015. I set up Kirsten Manzi Jewellery initially to create the kind of jewellery I’d wear myself with a focus on minimal design and beautiful materials. Now I aim to create jewellery that represents timeless sophistication and intimate beauty. Jewellery for every occasion that can be cherished forever.

Kirsten has showcased her jewellery across the UK at exhibitions including the prestigious New DesignersThe Barbicanand 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 on the events page.

As well as her own collections, Kirsten loves to work with clients to create limited edition and one-off commissions.  If you are looking for a specially designed and made piece of jewellery, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
