Zoya works predominantly on Diana’s popular Fairtrade Gold and Platinum collections, as well as designing one-of-a-kind pieces for our exhibitions. Having worked with Diana from the beginning, her knowledge of the collection is extensive and she is equipped with a wide ranging set of jewellery making skills and techniques
Zoya completed the Contemporary Jewellery Course at Bristol’s School of Art and has over 17 years’ experience in the jewellery industry. Alongside her work at Diana Porter, Zoya also has her own contemporary jewellery collection that we showcase in the shop.
I like to do the majority of work myself. I pride myself in learning as many different techniques as I can, chain making, enamelling, piercing and stone setting. I love using traditional techniques in my work but enjoy making pieces from wax carving for more sculptural pieces. I enjoy the challenges of working with unique stones and setting them to create a one of piece of art.
