About Pikaya



Pinar Kaya De Biasio designs and hand-makes contemporary jewellery from her shared studio in Shoreditch, London. 

She grew up in a border town of eastern Turkey at the crossroad of ancient trade routes in a family of traditional jewellers who considered this occupation as “men’s job” and through her work she is challenging that belief. 

After a degree and master’s in psychology and the first part of her career in this field, Pinar decided to go back to her roots and explore her family passion for jewellery, training at Morley College in London. She has come to realise that this passion runs in her blood, and she see the things with the eye of a jeweller.

Pinar’s pieces are exhibited in the UK and internationally, most recently at the MAD About Jewelery, hosted by The Museum of Arts and Design, New York and Elements Festival of Jewellery, Silver & Gold, in Edinburgh.

Pinar is determined to build a conscious brand which she can be proud of. Pinar is focused on reducing the impact of her activity by producing small batches of jewellery, through the usage of recycled materials and packaging to the extent possible and by cooperating with small family businesses whenever she needs to outsource a service, such as gold plating.

Pinar is a proud advocate for slow fashion movement and aiming to design and produce timeless, good quality pieces which will stay for generations in the family.
