Cora was born and raised in Switzerland and now lives in London with her husband and three children.
From an early age, Cora benefitted from an environment dedicated to modern and contemporary art and design.
She received an Art History degree from New York University in June 2001 and in the summer of 2002 Cora completed a degree in gemmology from the GIA in London.
In December 2002, she launched her eponymous jewellery label at an exhibition in London’s Mayfair.
"If there's anyone who could have legitimately fused the worlds of jewellery and art, it has to be Cora Sheibani"
Her uncompromising attention to detail is the underpinning of her business. Her pieces are produced to the highest quality in Switzerland, France & the UK. She started out by making small groups of work and individual pieces, each unique.
Cora has amassed an enormous collection of copper moulds
and loves the abstract ones the most.
Cora loves pottering around the garden, cooking and baking.
Aside from showing her designs in private viewings by appointment, Cora Sheibani has had jewellery exhibitions in many cities including London, Zurich, Geneva, Basel, St. Moritz, Paris, Copenhagen, Miami, Munich and New York.
"Her jewellery does not hanker after an image of more or less aggressive richness. What Cora Sheibani designs is not really 'jewellery' but rather a sophisticated suggestion"
"Cora creates themed collections that are seriously yet unselfconsciously design-driven touched with wit, charm and lightness, and totally devoid of clichés"
At age 4 Cora painted with Jean-Michel Basquiat in the garage and had her portrait done by Andy Warhol.
Worked with stonecutters in the historic centre of Idar-Oberstein to develop the Colour & Contradiction collection
Cora always draws designs on paper as a starting point.
