Ask any woman what her choices of desired treats are in life and it would surely include shoes, handbags, chocolate, and jewellery. Here on the enchanting island of Ibiza, we are spoilt enough to have a delectable collection of designs made with precious metals and gems that is not only loved by ladies who live on the White Isle, but also worldwide. Natasha Collis Jewellery offers a divine mixture of natural precious stones and organic shapes; her collections glimmer with unusually shaped diamonds and hand-melted 18ct gold nuggets that pose as a key feature in all her collections. Her inspiration is drawn from the breathtaking Ibizan landscapes that bask in prismatic rays of sunlight, an aesthetic which has established her as one of the most successful designers both on Ibiza and around the world.
Natasha studied and gained a degree in fine art at the Slade University in London. Following this, the creative worked as an assistant to artist Christopher Farr, enabling her to maintain and finance her art studio. However, as time passed she felt that fine art was no longer fulfilling her creative desires. Over the next seven years she gained work experience in both New York and London, including a stay with jewellery designer Jessica Rose in her loft studio in Soho, where Natasha was inspired by the creations she was surrounded by. As a result, she began to turn her individual sense of colour and creativity into her own pieces.
Drawn to the magical island of Ibiza, Natasha fell in love with the island’s energy, natural beauty and freedom of spirit. Discovering a delightful 300-year-old property in the Ibicencan village of San Miguel in the North, she transformed this gorgeous haven into her very own studio and shop where you will find a wide selection of her stunning work. Her designs are strong yet subtle in style. Natasha’s ‘Precious Colour Stories’ collection incorporates delicate strands of vibrant precious stones such as diamonds, rubies, and emeralds that drop delicately from the earlobe and enfold around the neck. Each one of Natasha’s designs are classic perfection in themselves, each piece with its own individual character. No two pieces are ever the same. The designer’s signature stacking rings are also a key feature in all her collections, the idea is to create your own individual selection with each gold nugget stacking ring holding a story or marking a celebrated occasion. Boasting a glorious array of different colours, the designs can be worn together or individually depending on your mood.
Natasha’s unique collection has received international recognition and sees her amongst one of the most talked about designers in the jewellery world today. Whether you’re looking for a special piece for a friend, a bold design to make you stand out or even wedding bands, her designs will make for a unique style statement. The Natasha Collis shop in San Miguel Artisan Hill is open during the summer months from 11.00am until 2.00pm and again from 6.00pm until 8.00pm from Monday to Saturday. Private appointments can also be made.
