Harriet Morris is a British jewellery designer-maker living and working in San Miguel de Allende, a town in the central highlands of Mexico. Here she has a workshop where she produces Responsible Jewellery pieces on a small scale using locally sourced materials and with the help of local artisans.
After studying History of Art at Cambridge University Harriet attended City and Guilds of London Art School before beginning her jewellery studies at Kensington and Chelsea college. She later moved to Mexico to continue at Sterling Quest School in San Miguel de Allende.
Harriet’s jewellery collections are inspired by ‘City mess’ and ‘chaos’ which can be found anywhere from the layered, disordered building in Mexico City to the specific movement of a crowd at rush hour. ” To catch this untidy energy I must lose control during the design process. The result is playful jewellery for the bold.”
All gold and silver used in the Harriet Morris’ jewellery is 100% recycled, and all gemstones are repurposed from unworn jewellery and estate sales.
We are delighted to introduce a selection of our favourite pieces from both her Built Collection and her latest Blast Collection at La Maison Couture.
