James McGrath, founder of Big Metal, was first inspired to start making jewellery whilst living in Papua New Guinea 30 years ago and working with natural materials with the local artisan people.
When he returned to London after his travels, he set up a workshop in his mother´s garden shed where he taught himself to make jewellery out of metal too.
He then progressed to setting up a stall in Portobello Market which had so much success that, one day, Jean-Paul Gaultier asked him to design the jewellery for a movie for which he was designing the clothes – this movie was the 5thElement which had and continues to have a huge impact on fashion, redefining what a futuristic aesthetic can be.
That is when Big Metal London was born and now James and his team design everything in-house in London, following all the latest trends, where he also has a small workshop.
This London-based jewellery and accessories brand put bold design at its heart, with an aim to elevate the everyday for the modern woman. Big Metal’s pieces are designed to spark the imagination and imbue positivity, with a range that ensures that whatever you choose, your unique personality will be reflected. The brand's playful aesthetic takes shape through oversized, geometric shapes in appealing colour palettes, classic geometric styles – such as stars and hexagons, eye-catching and oversize cut stones, and recognisable boho motifs – such as hearts, flowers, eyes and moons. Big Metal aim to introduce a new piece to the range every week, and carry out their craft with as much love and care for the environment as they can.
