Biography Back to top

Farah Qureshi has been creating jewellery collections for a number of years and is based in West London, where she creates her pieces. Farah has a strong interest in sustainability within the jewellery industry and endeavors to work with a sustainable ethos, using as much recycled precious material as possible along with Fairtrade gold. Her collections are comprised of simple pared down shapes and forms which create elegant collections and are occasionally embellished with a sprinkling of colourful gem stones. Farah's inspirations behind the collections are broad and varied. Farah had the opportunity to design a range of brooches for a group exhibition inspired by her travels on the London underground. Farah also exhibited a collection of pieces inspired by a 1930's painting and the collection was showcased with other contemporary crafts at the Guildhall Art Gallery during a 1930's fine art show, called the Age of Elegance. Farah Qureshi sells her work both nationally and internationally.
