Speaking to the auction house, Khouri said: “London is the cultural center for arts and creativity, so I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to exhibit here. I lived in London a decade ago and being back in the city with this exhibition is a particular thrill.”

Hidden Gem: Pippa Small, Jeweller

Every Monday The Carat Soup shines a spotlight on hidden gems: extraordinary women in our industry. This week my focus is on Pippa Small of @PippaSmallJewellery

Small has been at the forefront of fairtrade jewellery practices, long before it became cool. Quintessentially British and sustainably cool, her designs are sought after globally.

In their words:
“Pippa Small grew up in a family of artists and travellers. Spending her childhood exploring the world with her mother and siblings she became inspired by the many fascinating cultures she encountered. Later she completed a Masters in Medical Anthropology, by then her interests in human rights among minorities, indigenous and tribal groups were already well cultivated which led her going on to work with grass roots local organisations in Borneo, Thailand and India, looking at ways of protecting indigenous lands, knowledge and biodiversity.”

See more on their website here.
Shop in person in London, LA and NYC. Or online via Net-A-Porter. If you’re in London, I’d personally recommend you head to their retail space in Notting Hill.
