Akvile has been designing and making jewellery since 2016, after graduating from the Glasgow School of Art. Her metalwork is focused on the concepts of minimalism and sustainability while using traditional techniques in modern ways. Inspired by everything from daily surroundings, fashion and architecture Akvile works to refine her pieces to an elegant simplicity. She designs with the modern person in mind creating jewellery that is timeless, elegant and versatile.
Often creating with the intention to ask questions about gender, sexuality, jewellery and the human body. Akvile is particularly interested in challenging social norms surrounding jewellery: in both how it is worn and by whom. To do this she has tried to move away from separating adornments into either ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ by striving to create gender neutral pieces.
