Passionate about what I do.
Jewellery, its a love affair.
To say that I love what I do is an understatement (look at the cheesy face!) I feel blessed and honoured to call this my business, my work and my living and love every single aspect of having my business.
I've been making jewellery for over 16 years now, after joining an evening class and going on to study Jewellery and Silversmithing at the CASS in London. Since then i've been lucky enough to have been employed by two ward winning jewellery designers. I also have extensive repair knowledge from my time working for a large repairs company on the South Coast of England, and have a eye for detail.
Now I send my days in the Jewellers Hub (My workshop I have built that is now home to 4 incredible jewellers.) Brighton working on my own work for you wonderful peeps. I'm also lucky enough to spend my evenings teaching. I've recently been named the WJN Ambassador for Brighton and i'm beyond excited to be involved. Making jewellery and working within this industry truly brings me joy.
The impact my jewellery has on our plant plays a large part in my business model. Everything is made from recycled materials and can be recycled. This includes all my packaging and the jewellery itself. I also produce my jewellery in such a way to reduce its impact on our environment. I've removed nasty chemicals and replaced them with natural alternatives.
My jewellery designs are delicate by design, allowing for easy layering of items to enable my customers to build a more personalised statement look. Every item of Jewellery has been lovingly considered and carefully crafted for its wear-ability. Organic beauty plays a large part in my precious collection, making each item completely unique. They almost appear as if they have been found in rock formations and been smoothed by the sea in a similar way to sea glass.
As my brand evolves into its new phase of eco awareness i'm excited to bring you along with me on this journey.. I'm proud of hat we are achieving together. Who said luxury should cost the Earth!
I feel blessed and honoured to call this my business
