Designer Jewellery Highly Commended: Catena by Cara Tonkin

Cara Tonkin

Initially inspired by a scene from the 1927 silent film Metropolis, the Catena collection by jewellery designer Cara Tonkin explores the geometric style of the Bauhaus art movement which informed the film’s staging design.

In an eye-catching range, concentric circles are linked together to form handcrafted flowing chains with a structural yet delicate aesthetic.

Cara Tonkin started her eponymous brand in 2010, selling a unique collection of fine jewellery. All of the pieces in the Catena collection have been handmade in a studio in the centre of Brighton.

Pieces in this line have been crafted in sterling silver, with some designs being complete with a gold vermeil finish.
