Miranda Falkner and Evangelos Pourgouris
Evangelos Pourgouris and Miranda Falkner created EM Jewellery in 1994.
Having graduated from the London Guildhall University, after six years of extensive design research and studies, covering a wide range of traditional technical skills both in jewellery making and silversmithing, we set up this partnership with the aim of broadening the concepts of being the traditional goldsmiths and contemporary jewellers..
Our work is widely seen and exhibited in prestigious galleries, shops and museums around the country and that has brought along private commissions..
We regularly show at the Goldsmiths Fair, The International Jewellery in London, and the Barbican Centre.

Our designs are inspired by the observation of the nature, its forms and textures or any wild and obscure objects we often find in the open; these are the foundations and essential materials on the development of our ideas..
We then explore extensively the possibilities between the boundaries of designing and making, and have since created a technique of our own to pursue and realise each of our design pieces.
With our skilled craftsmanship, we use our intriguing technique to combine the different gauges of precious wires and sheet metal in different colours, so that each individual piece creates a bespoke identity of its own, simple yet elegant, modest yet precious..
The pieces are mostly produced in one-off or limited edition, so that the exclusiveness will allow our customers to enjoy the rarity of the genuinely hand made jewellery.
