Lara Adkins ✦ 𝘼𝙐𝙏𝙊𝙍 𝘼𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙙
Born in a small English village, Lara Adkins grew up aspiring to move to the “big city”, motivated by her passion for art and fashion. She used to sit in the field with the drawing pad and immerse herself in the sun while drawing for hours. Starting with these bohemian influences, Lara felt that she was becoming one with her surroundings, combining experiences and incorporating them into her art.
After working with a wide range of materials and techniques, Lara knew that she wanted to be part of the creative industry and began her academic training in this regard, looking for a specialization that would attract her. She moved permanently to London, where she studied at Central Saint Martins, earning a degree in jewelry. Lara has just graduated and her hopes are to bring this feeling of real emotion into the jewelry she creates, both personally and individually.
Lara Adkins is the winner of the AUTOR Award x CSM 2021 BA alumni. She showed us how jewelry offers a new approach to the time and fragility of life: “I believe that the meaning and value of an object are understood most deeply by touch.”
