Born in South Africa to a jewelry making family, Philippa Roberts was naturally drawn to working with metal and stones.

After graduating from Miami University with degrees in Metal Design and Photography, Roberts moved to San Francisco to start her career. What began as a small basement business in 1996, has expanded into a larger design studio with suppliers around the world. Roberts’ love for clean lines and soft colors comes from the nature around her, just as the diversity and architecture of the city inspires much of her creativity.

In 2006, Roberts opened her retail shop on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland, California. She now lives in the East Bay with her husband, Brian and their daughter, Charlotte.

To clean your jewelry, use toothpaste and a toothbrush (just like on your teeth), it works well and won’t loose the matte finish.
