Gift Guides - raw but refined jewellery for an everyday, quiet style

Gift Guides - raw but refined jewellery for an everyday, quiet style

Do you still have special gifts to buy and need some help deciding? 

Here I’m sharing my top jewellery picks for the gift-worthy people in your life this festive season, and to help you narrow it down I've created handy guides organised by theme - we have jewellery for the Minimalist, the Partygoer, for Day-to-Evening Wear, for Everyday Casual, and for Self-gifting. Most pieces are either in stock online and ready-to-ship or, provided you don't wait too long, may be still be ordered in time for Christmas. 

Gifting during the festive season is a beautiful thing, but the best gifts are the ones...

Introducing... THEIA

Introducing... THEIA

Introducing... THEIA. A new collection of rich, raw textures in gold and silver, with accents of natural gems, all uniquely hand-forged into wearable treasures for tiny moments and momentous occasions.

These new treasures have a raw, natural beauty, designed to be evocative of fragments from antiquity. Using only hammer, flame, and a handful of my favourite traditional tools, I've made these new pieces to add an extra glimmer of light to...
