The Design story

Influences

SawandPour is inspired by an unlikely subject – Ramen. At first glance, this seems like an unusual source of inspiration. However, when digging a little deeper, the bold geometric shapes, combination of colours, pristine arrangement and attention to detail all lends it’s self to a jewellery brand perfectly.

The Makers

All of SawandPour Jewellery is a collaboration between two designers from very different backgrounds. Amy Stringer studied Jewellery and Metalwork at Sheffield Hallam University. Oliver King studied Product Design at Loughborough University and went onto work in graphic design and branding.

The combination of these two worlds makes for an interesting and unique result, with bold graphic and geometric influences, while also having an attention to detail and materialisation found in contemporary craft.

Bold vs Simplicity

The intention of all the designs was always to be fun and interesting, with a unique twist – something unusual and eye-catching. This is where the Ramen came in. We also understand that people love simple and clean style, we do too! Simple geometric shapes work well whatever your mood or occasion. The biggest design challenge was to incorporate these two opposing ideas.

The Process

The making process behind SawandPour is 100% by hand and uses fully manual tools, no machiney. We saw, pour, melt, bend, torch, hammer and shine until the result is a glistening piece of SawandPour jewellery, ready to post.
