With a background in architecture, Amanda finds inspiration for h
er jewellery in the form, beauty and detail of the built environment. Her contemporary pieces are versatile, elegant and hand-crafted from the finest materials.


Amy Keeper

Amy creates contemporary, handmade jewellery using vintage postcards to create sterling silver pieces, suggesting contemporary cameos. Also, inspired by a spyglass in a children's story, her black and gold range features semi-precious stones and elements of movement. These ra

Emma Turpin
07860 749299
Emma's passion for traditional crafts and craftsmanship is reflected within her style of jewellery. Emma draws inspiration from Victorian folk life, Victorian interiors and buildings. She is continually striving to create contemporary pieces of jewellery with the essence of bringing the old with the new together. Emma graduated from Middlesex University in 2005, during which time she explored the beginning of her main collection 'Maidens Garlands' which consists of hand folded fine silver rosettes, a technique developed by Emma. Her love for the bygone era influences many of her designs. Emma works in silver, 18ct yellow gold with elements of oxidation and 22ct yellow gold plating. Commissions welcomed.

Katerina Damilos
07971 687441

Inspired by decorative arts and graphic design, Katerina creates contemporary, tactile and sculptural pieces that make a statement from day to evening. Her designs tend to explore inherent dualities in shape and form: curviness in linearity, symmetry in asymmetry, softness in hardness, order in chaos - a tension that creates contrast and stronger visual impact. _____________________________________________________________________________________

Nancy Rose
07968 754249
Organic forms are Nancy's primary inspiration. She is fascinated by the way the fragility of nature can be captured and transformed into a piece of beautiful jewellery. The quality of the materials and finish is extremely important. All the jewellery is made by hand at Nancy's workshop in Kent using traditional making techniques and a high attention to detail to create jewellery that is striking and unique.


Poly Philippou

Poly specialises in contemporary silver jewellery designed to be accessible - versatile, easy-to-wear, affordable, which looks good worn with a suit, evening wear or casually.

Rebecca Steiner

Rosie creates bewitching necklaces, bracelets and tiaras using vintage treasures woven into fine linen thread. Enchanting to behold, each one is a unique and individually handcrafted work of art. Personalised jewellery made to order.
