Inside the mind of Maria Francesca Pepe

We caught up with celebrity favourite jewellery designer Maria Francesca Pepe to get an insight into her thoughts on her sought after pieces!

Who do you see wearing the collection? What is she/he like?

Someone who feels cool, edgy and sexy and comfortable in her/his skin. Who values equally the design, the quality and the hand crafting.

What do you see your pieces being worn with?

Something cool and minimal, that blends well with the boldness of my jewellery. Like the jewellery is the painting and the clothing its frame.

What is your favourite piece from the collection?

Rings in general. I wear lot of rings and feel naked without. In particular the Ade ring with the dangling cross charm is a Must Have MFP piece which has become a classic.

If you weren’t a jewellery designer, what would you be?

I guess I would have my own cosmetic clinic. I am a cream freak and I use at least 6 different ones every day.. I would also like to be a buyer for a concept store, or a singer, or an actress, or a poet!

What’s been your career highlight so far?

Creating pieces for celebs like Gaga and Rihanna, and being nominated for the British Fashion Awards.

Water bottle, lip balm, phone and my jewellery on.
