Formed in 2005, COSMIMA are an established collective of fine jewellers who come together to exhibit and sell their latest work at their annual show in Clerkenwell, London each November. Each year the collective invite four guest designers to join them; two jewellers working in non-precious materials and two silversmiths.
COSMIMA are known for selecting well-respected and cutting-edge designers for their annual show. All nine designers exhibit internationally and their works can be found in the collections of the V&A, the Goldsmiths’ Company and Crafts Council.
The five core members of COSMIMA are Hidemi Asano, Chris Carpenter, Ulla Hornfeldt, Daphne Krinos and Louise O’Neill; contemporaries who met over fifteen years ago and have collaborated ever since, while forming strong profiles independently and around the globe.
The work of each designer is distinctive but bound by a commitment to craftsmanship, quality and consideration of processes, materials, techniques and visual narrative.
