About Petra Bishai

Petra is a designer jeweller whose work is defined by a linear style and pared down forms. Her work is inspired by urban life reflecting her fascination with living in a large city. The collections explore the paradox of belonging versus alienation and how we adapt and interact with our surroundings. Petra considers London life and the shifts that occur in her cultural environment. Transition occurs: do you go with the flow; do you contest the change, or do you create your own pathway?

Her current pieces are inspired by the perceived cultural differences between north and south London. The work uses the imagery of London’s river Thames. The river acts as both the heart of the city and its line of separation. Can the north ever learn to love the south or will the water always divide us.
