Cari-Jane Hakes creates sculptural, architecturally inspired jewellery to which her clients add their own special engraved messages.
Cari-Jane Hakes is a goldsmith who designs and fabricates all of the pieces in her notonthehighstreet.com shop, in her studio at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds in England.
She is originally from Glasgow, Scotland and learnt how to design whilst studying to become an Architect. She ran a successful architectural practice in London for 10 years with Julian Hakes. They worked together on a variety of projects from chapels to bridges in USA, Moscow and UK.
Whilst creating these designs for buildings and bridges Cari became focused on the details - the bits of architecture that scale a building down to the size of a human hand; door handles, staircases and benches for example.
Cari began to learn the discipline of becoming a goldsmith in 2005 at Morley College in London. There she began to make tiny pieces of 'architecture' with very expensive materials! Her first collection for notonthehighstreet.com was released Autumn/Winter 2014.
