When it comes to the designing and buying of materials, I do all of it myself. I love to travel abroad for inspiration and to source our wide variety of stones for our range.
I travel to Hong Kong and Bangkok each year to get inspiration at the International Jewellery Shows, which bring together jewellery makers from all over the world. Each year I spend days at the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl show where I hand pick each of our unique stones from thousands of suppliers.
I originally found myself falling in love with stones and beads many years ago when my daughter was born and I was studying Jewellery making in Egypt. I would frequently venture out to visit the vibrant Khan Al-Khalili market in Cairo and was mesmerized by the beauty I found in the vast quantity of gemstones I found there.
