Tusheeta Davis

Tusheeta David is an award-winning jewellery designer, who grew up in India. After a successful career in India as a fine jewellery designer for a leading Indian company, she moved to UK where she set up her own label after completing her MA in jewellery and silversmithing from Birmingham's School of Jewellery.

She is passionate about the recycling of plastic and uses recycled acrylic sheets to create contemporary acrylic jewellery using modern laser technology. Her work is very colourful and is inspired by microscopic images from nature. She has exhibited her work internationally in various fairs and galleries including the Origin Fair in London, New York Gift Fair in New York and the Electrum Gallery in London.

Besides developing her jewellery, Tusheeta has been a visiting lecturer at the school of jewellery. She has also freelanced for Swarovski and Corel Draw among other companies. One of the most exciting projects she has worked for has been designing jewellery for a bollywood film which then went on to be nominated for an Oscar.

At Steamhouse she is developing her work to include bright printed patterns. The availability of laser cutters, printers and jewellery benches has enabled her to bring out the best in her ability to develop her designs.
