Disa was born in London and grew up in Barbados. This special island really influenced her jewellery designs, visible in her use of colourful gemstones. Disa personally selects each stone such as golden citrines, warm garnets, rubies, sapphires and morganites.
White and coloured diamonds are set on unique bands while rough and rare cut gemstones make Disa’s work contemporary and current maintaining a timeless charm.
Disa exhibits internationally with stockists throughout the UK, United States, Japan and France. She exhibits at selected retail and trade shows as well as welcoming private clients by appointment to her London Studio.
Sustainability and the ethical journey of materials are an important and integral part of Disa’s practice.
Every year Disa travels to Kenya to source the majority of her gemstones. During these trips Disa visits a local gemstone supplier that she has worked with over the years.
Many of the gemstones sourced are originally from Kenya and East Africa. These beautiful Kenyan gemstones include tourmalines, sapphires, garnets, peridots and aquamarines.
All diamonds are gathered through ethical sources and diamond certificates can be provided on request.
A large percentage of the metal Disa uses to create her jewellery is recycled gold and silver. Disa has built up a reputation as a skilled jeweller when working with the sometimes unpredictable metals. The majority of the metal used is sourced from the heart of the jewellery district in Central London. Disa also frequently reworks clients’ sentimental gold and silver. Hallmarking is an integral part of the work to certify the precious metals used. All of the jewellery is handmade in Disa’s London studio.
