Article: Meet Lucy, Founder Of Minka Jewels

Meet Lucy, Founder Of Minka Jewels

A creative spirit since childhood, Lucy grew up aspiring to be a photographer. Her passion lay in telling stories through a camera lens, which led to her working with some of the fashion industry’s leading image-makers, including Georgina Graham, Mary Fellowes, and Sebastian Kaufmann, and honed her keen eye for colour and interesting design. It was following a silversmithing course in Argentina at the age of 22, however, that Lucy found her true calling in the world of jewellery. 
After her time in Argentina, Lucy went on to discover some of the rarest and most astonishing jewels whilst working under the guidance of the late Munnu Kasliwal at the globally renowned Gem Palace in Jaipur. Lucy fell in love with every stage of the jewellery creation process, from design and cutting, to setting and finishing - an incredibly eye-opening experience. Finding a huge amount of joy in this process, Lucy realised that what she truly wanted was to create exceptional jewellery that would tell the unique story of its wearer, and that would accompany them throughout their lives. 
Prior to founding Minka Jewels, Lucy studied gemmology at the Gemmological Institute of Great Britain (Gem-A) and worked as a gemstone trader in London’s Hatton Garden. During that time, Lucy devised the name Minka as an amalgamation of the names of her great-grandmother, Minnie, and grandmother, Katrina, who were both ardent jewellery lovers. She is proud to be following in their stylish footsteps today in the running of Minka Jewels.
