Pebble began as an excuse to spend lots of time exploring India, and our first collections used facetted and tumbled semi-precious stones we sourced throughout the country.
The fascination with the crafts of traditional cultures, particularly textiles, pottery, basketry and jewellery leads, nine years later, to travels in China, Africa, Thailand and South America with collections that include metals, stones, wood, glass, coral, and amber. We also use ancient excavated beads and glass trade beads produced in Europe in the nineteenth century. Traditional tribal jewellery is a big influence, as is our love of natural materials, and we try to keep our designs as simple as possible, in the belief that you cannot improve on nature.
Pebble also sources traditional pieces from tribal groups in Africa, the Pacific, China, Afghanistan, Nepal, and India. Over the years, we have worked with, or sold to many fashion designers, including Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Cavalli, Issey Miyake, Mathew Williamson, Emilio Pucci, Allegra Hicks, Joseph, Nicole Fahri and Donna Karan.
