Ute Decker Jewellery: Beauty in the Architectural Armour

Cuffs and jewellery full stop are not just beautiful items that look stunning on skin but they serve a purpose above and beyond.


Jewellery is essentially armour which is used for protective purposes, just as silver and gold is also harnessed for. Artist jeweller, Ute Decker, a champion for sustainable and ethical jewellery, has created a collection of jewellery which is bold, stunning and has an armour-like energy.

Ute Decker, one of the world’s first fair trade gold licence-holders, creates sculptural and architectural jewellery in sustainable materials including recycled sterling silver, recycled gold, and patinated copper, among others.


Her standout pieces are the cuffs, known as “arm sculpture”, which are architectural arm armour as it were. The cuffs which include origami-inspired shapes, traditional spirals and sculptural shapes are gorgeous pieces of arm candy.

The London-based German designer, known for her unique and limited edition handcrafted creations, selects only the finest sustainable materials – “either 100% recycled silver or fairtrade gold sourced from the small sotrami artisanal mining cooperative in the highlands of Peru”.
