Emerging Designer Highly Commended: Theda by Cara Tonkin


The Theda collection by Cara Tonkin pays homage to the magnificent silent film star Theda Bara in her role as the iconic Cleopatra.

Combining the Egyptian revival of the 1920s with an Art Deco aesthetic with shapes and motifs from Egypt’s mystical cultural heritage, the Theda collection offers a selection of bold jewellery, giving a gentle nod to a culture where jewels were worn to make a statement.

Cara Tonkin’s Theda collection has been praised for its blend of intricate design and commercial prospects. Pieces include interchangeable bracelets/necklaces, striking collars, and a variety of different earring styles to name but a few.
