Carol Cole is the owner and designer of Darcy & Jazz Jewellery. Based in South London, her background started out in a completely different sector. Working as a PA to board level TV and Radio MDs and VPs, she felt a change was needed, and her creative side desired an outlet. Carol enrolled on a course at Lambeth College, South London in 2006-07, where she completed the NCFE Level 1 and Level 2 Certificate in Creative Craft in Jewellery. This newfound hobby turned into a passion and over the years she continued learning and developing her craft through short courses. Creating her own jewellery and the comments she received was the driving force behind Carol's desire to create bespoke pieces that speak to the individual and so, birthed the creation of Darcy & Jazz Jewellery.
Carol is inspired by her African and Jamaican culture, celebrating what it means to be a black woman, mother, daughter and sista in this world. As a designer, Carol creates jewellery that empowers the multifaceted modern-day woman through bold contemporary design.
