Mia Calderisi Phelan (DesignsbyMia) has been designing and handcrafting jewellery in Cheshire for more than 10 years. Working primarily with silver, her inspiration comes from the natural world and is reflected in a collection of contemporary pieces as beautiful as they are wearable.
With a creativity borne out of her background in fine art and design, Mia’s starting point for any piece is practicality. She sculpts intricate designs with a focus on delivering jewellery that looks stunning in presentation but truly sings when it is worn by you.
Many of her pieces trace their origins to flora, fauna and the tiny creatures you can find in many an English garden. Her love of colour means Mia also adores working with gold, enamels and gems such as tourmalines, malachites, peridots and green quartz. You’ll also find subtle hints of the sea throughout her work; the ocean is a theme she loves returning to.
All of Mia’s pieces are original designs, created using traditional skills she’s honed over a decade.
