Karola Torkos graduated from the Royal College of Art London with a Master of Arts from the Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery Department. "My current and ongoing project of changeable jewelry offers a huge playground. Giving the wearer the possibility to change the look of a jewelry piece is in some way handing over the last step in the design process. This is a challenge for both the designer and the wearer and it leads to a very personal relationship to design or art." After a decade of living, working and teaching in London, Karola has recently returned her home country and is based in Luebeck, Germany.
