My business began in 2003. I wanted to bring the work of the most exciting, talented and innovative costume jewellery designers to the British market.
In 2006 I moved to a converted dairy in Rugby Street, Bloomsbury, where I have been selling individually chosen costume jewellery and other accessories to discerning shoppers.
The story started in the south of France – I bought a stunning necklace in a Perpignan boutique in the winter of 2001, returning six months later to find another. What struck me about both pieces was their individuality and exceptionally original design. The designer was Philippe Ferrandis. I tracked him down to his studio in Paris, and there began our close professional relationship, which is still going strong today. We are also delighted to offer our customers the work of other carefully chosen designers, including that of Madrid-based Anton Heunis, Christina Brampti from Athens and Parisian, Samuel Coraux. These are only some of the designers in a much bigger portfolio. We complement these collections with a carefully edited collection of beautiful scarves and unique accessories.
Whilst the online shop gives you a flavour of the work of some of the designers, the Rugby Street shop is full of many more wonderful things!
