AKA jewellery is a brand led by designer Ausra Bankauskaite. Trained in metal working and jewellery design, Ausra began creating contemporary pieces that bridged the worlds of art objects, and jewellery. Aware of the dual nature of her designs, Ausra gave her line the name "AKA" meaning 'Also Known As'.
Renowned for: Designs based on the concepts of structure and functionality, which are combined to create minimal aesthetic forms.
Handpicked by JewelStreet because: Ausra believes that jewellery must be in harmony with the human body, it must not disturb it, but instead work with it, and enhance its aesthetic lines – her designs are immaculate and non-iterative.
