I have fallen in love with jewellery since I was 9 years old.
This gold locket changed my life. My mum gave me this gold locket at 9 years old. This was the start of my love for jewellery. I knew it was gold and delicate, so I had to take care of it.
This was first gold jewellery item. My mum was a single parent, and did not have much money. I knew that she saved, sacrificed and grafted for me for a nearly a year to buy this precious gift. 20 years later I still have it in pristine condition.
Every time I see this or wear this locket I feel love, a strong bond between a mother and daughter. I remember my childhood and great Christmases. These memories and warm feelings will never die.
Thank you mum xxxx
I am an ethical jewellery designer. I have lived in many places in the UK and settled in London over 10 years ago.
I have worked in the public and voluntary sector for nearly 10 years. I have studied jewellery manufacturing and design in Hatton Gardens one of the UK’s biggest jewellery districts). I learnt the traditional techniques of making handmade jewellery, before setting up my East London studio. I studied at UAL. In addition, I write poems and stories.
I design ethical jewellery with the dress codes of a range of professional and creative industries in mind; from minimalist styles for the more formal work environments to loud pieces for creatives.
I am the ethical fine jeweller of choice for hard working and confident people who want pieces that they can wear seamlessly from day to night. I feel my jewellery style is conceptual organic, textured elements contrasting with geometric shapes. It is always infused with storytelling.
