Poppy Norton

Poppy Norton makes design-led, statement jewellery from her North London workshop.

Poppy’s work follows a pared back, modernist approach to design. Clean lines, smooth surfaces and basic geometric shapes are applied using a bold scale to create precise, confident pieces that are designed to be noticed.

Having originally trained in Product Design at Central Saint Martins, Poppy went on to work as an Interior Stylist, Art Director and Trend Reporter for a wide range of clients including The Guardian, Grand Designs Magazine, Channel 4 and WGSN.

Eighteen years of styling experience and two children later, Poppy was keen to embrace new challenges and return to her designer-maker roots. She headed back to the workshop and started her training as a jewellery designer at Morley College in 2016.

Immediately championed by UK galleries, fashion stylists and design influencers including Erica Davies, Kate Watson-Smyth and Emmanuelle Morgan (‘The Designerist’), Poppy’s jewellery has been shown at Paris Fashion Week, featured in both design and lifestyle magazines, made multiple television appearances on programmes such as Afterlife and The Great Pottery Throwdown and there are even rumours of it making a cameo in Star Wars.

In 2022 Poppy’s work was given further recognition when she was selected by the Goldsmiths’ Centre to take part in Shine: ‘celebrating the UK’s most promising talent in jewellery and silversmithing, hand-picked for their talent and skill’, this was then followed in 2023 by an invitation to participate in the Goldsmiths’ Fair.
