It's now been over 15 years that I've been dedicated to beautiful jewellery – I started as a fashion jewellery designer, travelling around the far east and learning the ins and outs of the trade – the good, the bad and the ugly. Masters in Central St Martins followed, with a deep research into ethics. Then as the creative director of Leblas Jewellery and for the last 5 years as the designer/conductor of my very own brand – Arabel Lebrusan. I've been very privileged to have people speak very generously about my work and I've done my best to always deliver the most beautiful pieces, not just on the surface but also in the integrity of the process.
I am truly committed to beautiful jewellery. Investing in a piece of jewellery made by us means owning an exquisite accessory which will give you a lifetime's pleasure and which you will want to pass onto succeeding generations to enjoy.
Our bespoke pieces are truly one-of-a-kind and designed purely for you, and the hand-crafted nature of our Filigree collections ensures every piece is unique in its own special way. We also offer Limited Edition engagement ring designs for that extra-special touch, with only 25 of each design ever made.
I only work with the people I respect and trust. I only commission the best craftsmen in both the UK and Spain to bring my designs to reality. I support artisans in small Spanish towns where jewellery making is a valued craft; the skills for which are painstakingly passed down from one generation to the next. Without their hands their skills will be lost.
Like you, I don't want to support any kind of exploitation - whether that's of individuals who don't have the economic means to defend themselves, or environments which can't cope with the chemicals and processes traditionally used to extract gold from the earth. And that's why I insist that all the precious metals and gemstones that we use are sustainably and ethically sourced.
We are a small dedicated team who love jewellery and know it can be quite a process to choose the best for you. That's why we love taking to you about what you need and are always happy to show you examples of our work. It's always a personal service with us because jewellery is always personal.
