Claiming nearly 900 designs, including one-off jewelry pieces and some all-time classics, Crazy Pig Designs has been making fine jewellery since 1992. Based in London, designer Armand Serra spends his days playing the guitar as well as creating custom jewellery pieces for rock musicians and silver aficionados. Originally, "Crazy Pig" was the name Armand came up with for his music band, but it has now become a well-recognized brand name for Rock and Roll jewelry. Crazy Pig works with sterling silver, gold, platinum and both precious and semi-precious stones. Each piece bears the British hallmark.

The brand's signature style is heavily influenced by punk and rock culture, with many of their pieces featuring bold designs and motifs. Some of their most popular collections include the Skull, Spike, and Leather collections, which feature pieces such as skull rings, spiked bracelets, and leather wristbands.

Crazy Pig Designs' jewelry is all handcrafted in their workshop in the UK using traditional techniques. Each piece is made from high-quality sterling silver and is designed to last a lifetime. The brand also uses other materials such as leather, stones, and enamel to add texture and color to their pieces.

One of the things that sets Crazy Pig Designs apart from other jewelry brands is their commitment to sustainability. They use recycled silver in their jewelry, and they also have a recycling program where customers can bring in their old Crazy Pig Designs pieces to be melted down and made into new jewelry. In addition to their collections, Crazy Pig Designs also offers a bespoke design service. Customers can work with the brand's designers to create their own unique piece of jewelry, tailored to their individual tastes and requirements.
