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.
How we love SIMONE! Drop earrings with a refined playfulness, they mirror the grace of your movement with individually linked silver pieces.
Inspired by traditional inlay techniques usually reserved for Mother of Pearl, the SIMONE earrings reimagine this heritage craft with precious discs of Highland Horn as the focal point of these drop earrings.
The SIMONE earrings are handmade from organically textured recycled silver and horn – a byproduct of the leather industry.
Horn is a natural material, with varying patterns and colours, and therefore the finished earrings may look different from the images pictured. We currently have darker horn available – to discuss the colour ways for your piece, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The SIMONE earrings are made to order. Please allow up to 4 weeks for the SIMONE earrings to be handcrafted and delivered.
Sold as a pair. Each earring weighs approximately 15.5g.
