About Alise Kennedy

Alise Kennedy trained in theatre design and jewellery and has spent her career in theatre Wardrobe, working in the West End, Royal Ballet and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Her jewellery is shaped by an affinity with textiles and the stories they reflect. Alise’s jewellery dramatically fuses cutting-edge design with traditional costume construction.

She creates striking theatrical statement pieces, which blend precious metals with the rich expressive colour and texture of repurposed and organic textiles. Designs are sumptuous, tactile, and audacious. Working with sustainably sourced textiles, her pieces are handmade and ethically produced.

Having recently graduated from Central St. Martins with an M.A. (Distinction) in Design (Jewellery), Alise Kennedy spotlights the lush tactility and striking textural qualities of denim on a dramatic scale in her most recent collection, ‘Volutes’. Thinking through making and exploring the visual potential of denim’s distinctive woven structure places this textile as the centrepiece for this collection.
