About Pikaya Jewellery

Pikaya Jewellery is designed and handmade by Pinar Kaya De Biasio from her shared studio in Shoreditch, London. 

She grew up in a border town of eastern Turkey at the crossroad of ancient trade routes in a family of traditional jewellers who considered this occupation as “men’s job” and through her work she is challenging that belief. 

After a degree and master’s in psychology and the first part of her career in this field, Pinar decided to go back to her roots and explore her family passion for jewellery, training at Morley College in London. She has come to realise that this passion runs in her blood, and she see the things with the eye of a jeweller.

Pinar’s pieces are exhibited in the UK and internationally, most recently at the MAD About Jewelery, hosted by The Museum of Arts and Design, New York and Elements Festival of Jewellery, Silver & Gold, in Edinburgh.

Pinar is determined to build a conscious brand which she can be proud of. Pinar is focused on reducing the impact of her activity by producing small batches of jewellery, through the usage of recycled materials and packaging to the extent possible and by cooperating with small family businesses whenever she needs to outsource a service, such as gold plating.

Pinar is a proud advocate for slow fashion movement and aiming to design and produce timeless, good quality pieces which will stay for generations in the family. 

In Flow Collection

The inspiration for The In Flow collection comes from a peculiar place - liquid lipstick. By dripping liquid lipstick onto paper and making drawings based on them Pinar was inspired by the flowing shapes that were formed and used them as visual inspiration for the collection.

Pinar started to design her In Flow collection during the first weeks of the London lockdown. A time when we spend unprecedented amounts of time indoors, often with little or no social contact. During this Covid period, fluids in any form became terrifying and contact was avoided. Pinar has turned these fluid shapes into bold, eye-catching pieces of art, that can freely move around.

The free-flowing shapes created force their way out of the little boxes people were forced to stay in during Covid, find other people and reconnecting with the world.
