Originally from South Africa and now residing in San Francisco, Philippa sold her first small jewelry collection in 1996. Her clean lines, use of colorful stones, and timeless, classic style has stayed true throughout her years in business. Philippa’s signature look is simple, organic shapes combined with beautifully cut gemstones. Her love of the ocean plays a large role in the selection of clean, blue and green stones in many of her pieces. Philippa’s creativity stems from the nature around her, yet she also incorporates a feeling of the urban, with lines and patterns that imitate architecture and design seen around the city.
