Born into a family of artisan blacksmiths, Daisy has always had the desire to create. With a passion for dark art, gothic haute couture fashion and heavy metal music, Daisy often finds that the things she believes to be intriguing and beautiful, can be unnerving or peculiar to others. It is this that drives Daisy to create her jewellery, to show there is beauty within darkness.
Dedicated to going against fast-fashion, Daisy creates edgy yet wearable sculptures to last a lifetime. She is a professionally trained multi award-winning jewellery designer maker; her accolades include being named Innovator in the Editors Choice 2018 awards, and receiving a Gold Award in the 2019 Goldsmiths Craft and Design Awards. In 2013 Daisy started studying jewellery and silversmithing at the prestigious Birmingham School of Jewellery, and in 2015 went on to work for British jewellery Designer Paul Spurgeon. Wanting to pursue her own dream, Daisy returned to Birmingham in 2017 and gained a first-class BA (Hons) in jewellery design for industry, and subsequently in 2018 she launched Daisy Grice Jewellery.
‘Twisted Tales’ is an award-winning collection of fiercely striking, gender fluid jewellery, designed to empower and celebrate the wearer. It is inspired by elements from the natural world, such as entwined branches, thorns, fangs, and bones, that have been manipulated and combined with dark enchantments of the supernatural to create bold, wearable sculptures.
The collection was created through the fusion of Daisy’s traditional goldsmithing techniques and modern computer aided design technology. It combines highly polished sterling silver and matte black nylon elements with black diamond details, contrasting through colour, texture, and heft. Throughout the collection, sweeping curves meet at sharp points. Every line has been carefully considered to create precise sculptural forms that look enticing from every angle. The collection portrays Daisy’s love of H.R. Giger and is headed by a one of a kind black statement collar, bejewelled with sterling silver thorns.
