It sometimes takes a major life event (good or challenging) to make you realise what really is at your core when you're alone i.e apart from your loved ones, what makes you buzzy and happy?. My seminal moment was a health scare that shot me almost immediately back to my love of art and creativity. As much as I love my work in the corporate space, it's playing with colour, texture and ideas that I truly love. So alongside my jewellery... I'm making more time to get back to my first love...painting and sculpting and generally making a joyful mess.
So... with a new space in the studio dedicated to painting and things messy, I am embarking on some more creative projects. I will be sure to upload a video of my new studio soon. Let's go....
Antigua, the jewel of the Caribbean, has always held a special place in my heart. With half of my family hailing from the Caribbean, I've had the privilege of exploring this enchanting island many times on our way across the Caribbean visiting family. During my most recent visit to Antigua, I had the extraordinary opportunity to step into the world of opulence by visiting some of the most stunning luxury homes and villas on the island. This experience not only deepened my love for this beautiful destination but also underscored my passion for luxury design and interiors—a passion I bring to life through my bespoke and luxury high-end jewellery brand based in London.
A Caribbean Gem
Antigua, with its pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and lush landscapes, is a Caribbean paradise like no other. Its rich history, vibrant culture, and warm, welcoming people create an irresistible allure. Every visit to this island feels literally like coming home, and I cherish the connection I have with this tropical paradise.
It’s always an absolute privilege to be asked to make someone’s Engagement Ring. This will possibly be the most precious piece of Jewellery that they will own and so it’s an absolute honour.
Not only is the whole process of meeting my clients and learning about their romantic story, so much fun but the making of their dream ring is a delight to see unfold. From the initial design meeting to the fitting & finished delivery - I am captivated by every stage.
And as for those finished rings.... Wow ! Lucky lady ... may your life be as beautiful as your Jewels 💎

How exciting that I've been able to bring you my favourite Luxury Scented Candles. These are the beautiful Buick House Candles I use to fragrance my home. I currently have The Loft in my kitchen which smells of the incredible scent of Jasmine, Grapefruit and Bergamot and I have The Meadow in my bedroom with the gentle fragrances of Orange, Lily and Mandarin.
All 6 fragrances make an appearance at different times of the month and in different rooms of the house depending on my mood. The whole family adore the gentle scents around our home and it's going to be an inviting aroma for when we finally welcome guests once again.
Buick House Candles are absolutely not tested on animals, are made of hand poured natural wax and all have the most exquisite fragrances.
I'd love you to try one and let me know what you're favourite fragrant choice is.
Lots of Love
