Aurora Lombardo designs and makes individual and exclusive pieces of contemporary jewellery with a touch of Italian flair. Her aim is to create contemporary jewellery pieces that make a statement and draw attention while remaining practical and confortable to wear. Working from her Cambridgeshire studio Aurora combines traditional silversmithing, glass fusing and ceramic bead making techniques with a contemporary aesthetic to create a range of one-off pieces and limited edition jewellery collections. Inspired by the wonderful interplay between colours, patterns and textures found in nature, Aurora often incorporates metallic lustres, etched patterns and colorful textile elements to add contrast and interest to her designs. Recently Aurora's work has been expanding to include a range of ceramic hanging decorations and small wall art pieces.
I am an italian molecular biologist-turned-jeweller. I'm based in Cambridgeshire, UK.
Largely self-taught, I took up jewellery-making and glass fusing in 2002 after giving up my research work in biology to dedicate more time to my two young children.
After having held a Licentiate membership for a few years, I was awarded full MSDC status of the Society in 2014
My work has been featured in Craftsman Magazine (Feb 2005; March 2007) and it is displayed and for sale in selected jewellery shops and art galleries
One of my silver and dichroic glass pieces, the “Trinacria” bangle, has been selected for exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London as part of their “Inspired by... ” 2006 competition.
In 2008, my "Something Blooming" bracelet has been awarded the third prize in the Precious Metal Clay Design Competition Organized by the PMC Studio.
During 2010-2011 I have been a contributor to "Creative Beads & Jewellery" magazine
In 2009 I set up The Jazzy Jewelz Studio through which I offer a range of stress free, fun & creative jewellery making parties and workshops for children and grown ups.
