ISLA GILHAM

Isla Gilham creates precious pieces with a delicous twist, using handcarved juicy gemstones that are tempting & indulgent

About Isla Gilham

Isla grew up in Somerset, day dreaming of the tiara her Great Grandfather, George, had handcrafted decades prior; filigree, timelessly beautiful and, most importantly of all, adorned with juicy ‘Jelly Tots’. The sugar coated sweets proudly sat where precious stones usually would. Almost half a century later, with this treasured family story as her prevailing inspiration, Isla designs her own precious pieces with delicious twists; playing on the tempting and indulgent nature of jewels and gemstones.

Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2018, Isla has been the recipient of many industry accolades; including, ‘Best Design’, awarded by Theo Fennell, a Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council Award and a Gem-A scholarship. In 2019, Isla was shortlisted for one of International Jewellery London’s Leading Lights Awards, where she was exhibiting as a Bright Young Gem.
