SISSY YATES: ONE TO WATCH
Jewellery designer Sissy Yates‘ fascination with exotic gemstones began when she worked at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. The vast collections of Asiatic and Oriental jewellery inspired her so much that she eventually launched Sissy Yates Designs in 2007. The collections of earrings, necklaces and bracelets are made with semi-precious stones sourced from around the world.
Working with gems like opal, topaz, turquoise, mother-of-pearl, coral and lapis, Sissy also offers a custom jewellery design service, creating one-of-a-kind pieces or reworking an existing design. Log on to www.sissyyatesdesigns.com to view and shop the collections.
