Jewellery Inspired by Architecture


Adornment Archive

Adornment Archive was founded by Ellen Thomas and Amy Levinson. The pair met whilst on Northumbria Universities’ award winning Designers in Residence Scheme.

Ellen is an alumni of the Crafts Council’s Hothouse Scheme and spent 5 years working with the internationally acclaimed United Visual Artists. During that time she worked on projects with Hermes, Cartier and Selfridges.

Collectively we have designed furniture, lighting, products, architectural models and immersive installations. Creatives can often get pigeonholed, we feel our time working in different design disciplines has broadened our outlook as designers.

The Idea

Adornment Archive is modern contemporary British jewellery brand. Our idea is to create jewellery which has been inspired by architecture from around the world. We are architecture lovers, explorers, and design geeks who love nothing more than an afternoon walking around a new city soaking up the details of a facade. Those details inform our new collections. 

We are passionate about design and it is our mission to create pieces worthy of archiving each with its own story of the places that inspired it. 



Our Style

We create bold statement pieces for women looking for something different. We love fashion and believe in individuality and self expression.

If you’re wearing Adornment Archive in your social media pictures, please remember to tag us, we love to see how our customers are wearing their treasures.


Handmade Jewellery

We are passionate about craftsmanship (and craftswomenship) all of our pieces are ethically sourced from reputable makers, and are lovingly handcrafted in sterling silver.

We want to create jewellery that has the ability to transport the wearer to the places and the architecture that inspire them.
