A collection of original handmade jewellery by designer-maker Kate Trouw at The Biscuit Factory.

Kate Trouw

Kate Trouw is a former architect who launched her eponymous jewellery line in 2014. The move from architecture to jewellery was prompted by a ceramics workshop Kate went along to at Hackney City farm in London. There she realised that whilst immersed in her work as an architect she had forgotten the joy and fulfilment of making by hand. Looking for a material she could work with Kate started experimenting with polymer clay and was drawn in by the speed with which she could move from design to making, and the ease with which different ideas could be worked out using the material itself, rather than designing on paper.

Kate began making simple sculptural pieces which were not only a continuation of some of the themes she explored as an architect, but were also an extension of her style. She has now produced two collections of elegant yet playful statement pieces which can be worn every day.

In 2017 Kate moved back Scotland, where she grew up. She now lives with her young son in a coastal village and has a studio in a former Art Deco cinema located high on a cliff looking out over the Firth of Forth. She has replaced her daily walk through London with a swim in the sea!
