Veronika Fabian is a Hungarian jewellery artist based in London. Trained as a financial analyst, she gravitated toward jewellery after seven years in the financial sector. Fabian’s work is informed by her own journey from complex analysis to handcraft, economics to design.

With a master’s in economic policy, Fabian received her BA in Jewellery Design from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London in 2018 and MA from Sandberg Instituut, Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 2020. Her work investigates the impact of contemporary capitalism on daily life and personal identity, both of which play a vital role in her collections.

Fabian has received numerous awards including a Marzee Graduate prize, Cartier Scholarship, Swarovski ‘Power of Transformation’ prize and the MullenLowe NOVA, Unilever ‘Unstereotype’ Award. Her work has been exhibited internationally in shows including Collect London, Design Miami, Schmuck, and can be found in several public and private collections.
