About Folde Jewellery
Founded in London, Folde is the shared jewellery design studio of Robyn Smith and Birgit Toke Tauka Frietman. Folde, meaning earth in Old English, seeks to celebrate the endangered heritage craft of horn working in jewellery that speaks of everyday luxury.
Meeting at Central Saint Martins where they both studied, the designers found a similar sensibility in their approach to designing jewellery and their shared commitment to continue time-honoured craft techniques.
Horn, a byproduct of the meat industry, is a beautiful, uniquely textured material that would otherwise be disposed of. Pairing traditional heritage craft horn working techniques with modern technologies, Folde’s collections feel playful yet refined.
Each piece is handcrafted in their London studio using recycled silver, and made in small batches or as one-of-a-kind pieces.
