Jewellery Designer

Easily recognised for her long fuchsia lock in her curly hair, Olga Noronha represents innovation. At only 23 years old, Olga is a force to be reckoned with in the jewellery world. She started really early, at age 11, creating her pieces. Loaded with irreverence and ambition, Olga Noronha left Portugal towards London, where she studied Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, being currently an attending teacher and a PhD student at Goldsmiths. But Olga Noronha’s journey is even more diverse.

Combining fine-jewellery with medicine, the designer created a new concept, medically prescribed jewels – manipulating medic-chirurgical objects and materials with the purpose of turning them into unique pieces. Her irreverent concepts have reached out to stars such as Rihanna and Daphne Guiness who have developed an interest for the designers work. When conceptualizing her pieces, Olga looks for inspiration on the northern region and on its traditions, allying the know-how of techniques such as “filigrana” to more contemporary practices.
