iana – Anna Caird & Ian Caird
Creative and contemporary handmade designs by iana jewellery designer based in Nonington, near Canterbury, Kent, England iana jewellery is the venture of husband and wife team Anna and Ian Caird. It began as a pastime, and still is. Anna has a background in primary school teaching, is a head teacher, and Ian in further education and, further back, higher and adult education also. Ian also has a background in commercial and illustrative photography, graphics and media production before turning his interest in the aesthetics of visual communication to three dimensional design in the form of jewellery. These professions bring with them a lot of additional work to be achieved at home, it is the only way to get the workload done. However, undeterred, it is important also to make time for developing our ideas for jewellery designs and craftsmanship as goldsmiths, which has grown considerably since our initial training in Dorset 2007.
