Introducing C6 and Kikkino! New Designers Have Arrived at Monkey Puzzle

March 29, 2015 Amelia Ellison

Exciting news…. There are two new jewellery designers at Monkey puzzle!

                                                            

C6 was invented by a Danish lady called ‘Anne Cohen’.  

It started when she crossed the Atlantic in a 60’ carbon fibre, Vende Globe race boat in 1997. With an eye for design she came up with the idea of making jewellery that just consists of pure carbon atoms; graphite fibre (aka carbon fibre) and diamond. These are two forms of the element that just differ in structure.

The end product has created an eye catching stunning combination, which is extremely durable, light in weight and unique.  Anne actually won 1st prize for innovative design and use of materials at the Copenhagen jewellery fair in 2010.

C6 uses not only white and black diamonds but stunning coloured diamonds such as a bright cannery yellow, beautiful sea blue, cognac and light pink. As you can see from the picture below it really looks stunning.

                                                                   

Diamonds are over 1 billion years old, created 118 miles down in our Earth's mantle.  Graphite is a fraction of the age founded in the 1500's.  Using Anne's design and bringing them together it really creates a 'Timeless Love'

With that in mind here are some wedding bands, unique, contemporary and timeless. 

                                                               

 

Although supplying to countless outlets in Norway, Sweden and Austria, Monkey Puzzle will only be their 5th UK outlet. They are all on our website follow the link to see what designs we have in store. C6 

 

                                            

Kikkino Is our second new designer at Monkey Puzzle.

Kikkino which means red in Greek was founded by Melaine Ankers in 2003. Her imaginative and contemporary  pieces are all  made in silver with 22ct gold and dark oxidising for detailing, this really makes the items stand out especially by using 22ct which has a high content of gold making the plating rich and bright in colour. 

Here are some earrings from the lacewing collection, you can see how beautiful they looks with the gold plating:

 This is another piece using the gold and oxidising. Black and gold is there anything more stylish?

 

Melaine graduated from the Jewellery school at UCE in Birmingham she now hand makes all her jewellery, by hand, at her Worcester workshop. The designs and pieces have been used on the catwalk at The Clothes Show and the Jewellery Show.

Check out all these pieces on our website Kikkino
