Vicky Saragouda is a London based Jewellery and Accessory designer making eco-friendly jewellery and body adornments.

She trained as a professional photographer at London College of Printing before embarking for her BA degree in Product Design and Development for the Fashion Industries in London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London. Vicky then went on to study at Sir John Cass, School of Art, Media and Design, part of the London Metropolitan University where she gained her Masters of Arts in Jewellery Design.

Vicky investigates the concepts of sustainability, upcycling and ethical production within the context of her practice. Her aim is to show jewellery as an adornment, which instils power and confidence to the wearer.
Deconstruction – construction, new materials – found objects, old beads – vintage findings make an important part of her practice. Materials research and crafting techniques influence her approach to design. Furthermore the design process is nourished by her curiosity and desire to understand how far materials can be manipulated.

Her signature collection of neckpieces draw influences from the Renaissance portraits of noblemen and offers multiple possibilities of styling to the wearer. They can be worn as whole statement pieces or then by detaching the upper piece from the chains each component can be styled by itself. The collection includes brooches, bracelets and pendants.
All artefacts are handcrafted in Britain using traditional leatherworking, textile and jewellery techniques.

Vicky's recent collections include Adorned_Mixed Media, where overly decorated necklaces and brooches have been shaped following organic patterns found in nature or in the surrounding ambient.

Her latest work includes a series of statement rings titled “Impresa” as of (Heraldry) an emblem or device, usually a motto on a coat of arms. For this collection of rings, Vicky drew influences from the Armada portrait of Queen Elizabeth I of England.
