Azuni of London's founder and creative designer, Ashley Marshall, did not take a traditional route into jewellery design. He started his career as a chef, working in some of London's most prestigious kitchens including The Ivy, The Dorchester and La Caprice. Ashley decided to take his talent for combining flavours and ingredients to creating jewellery. His unique approach to design developed during his extensive travels to South America and his studies at Sir John Cass Jewellery and Silversmithing University in London. Ashley's confidence and flair for experimenting with unusual textures and stones has created the most breathtaking results.
