Hi I’m Louise, and I have over 23 years’ experience of working within the jewellery sector, supplying both individuals and businesses.
I personally specialise in bespoke pieces, for clients who would like a personal service and want to purchase unique jewellery.
I can rework sentimental or inherited gold. I can re-set precious gemstones. I can offer repairs and maintenance, or design something completely from scratch using all fresh materials.

My career started on Putney High Street in London, where I was Assistant Manager for a retail shop selling mainly silver jewellery; this was my first full time job so I really was thrown in at the deep end! I progressed to Manager of the store, and then to Area Manager for South West London.
About 6 years later, I was approached by one of London’s high-end jewellers to manage their retail outlets across Surrey and South West London and I excitedly accepted; this is where my love affair with precious stones and diamonds really began!
In 2006, after 10 years of retail management, I was ready for a new challenge and direction in life. A London based manufacturing company approached me, and offered me an Account Manager position looking after their premium retail client base, I was overjoyed to accept and really enjoyed learning the art of handcrafting bespoke jewellery, branding and marketing.
About 7 years ago, I decided to take the leap and set up my own jewellery company, as this has always been my real passion.
