‘Kinnaird Jewellery combines inspiration from her travels through countries such as Peru, Morocco and Vietnam. Here Carolyn was captured by the scale of tribal styles of jewellery and by the details of their traditional tribal tattooing. Through Carolyn’s innate contemporary style and vision, Kinnaird jewellery realises the influence of these tribal idiosyncrasies on her work through the creation of uniquely bold, yet simplistic forms.’
