Cara Tonkin

Designer Profile

Cara Tonkin creates jewellery that explores her fascination with cultural and historical symbolism with a focus on innovative and modern design. Cara Tonkin's elegant pieces relate to themes of decadence, mysticism and the exotic.

Growing up in Brighton, Cara regularly visited the plentiful antique markets and treasure-trove boutiques throughout the city and from a young age this sparked her love of historical objects and designs. Cara later began her career as a jewellery designer by training at the world famous Art School, Central St Martins.

She believes in the use of jewellery as a powerful tool of self-expression and enjoys leading the wearer’s imagination with her sculptural representations of romantic and iconic imagery. Cara creates modern yet classic designs, which exude opulence and fantasy inspired by the Arts and Crafts of the fin de siecle.
