About us

My photo
Addicted to vintage... We are designer/makers based in the South of England with more than a slight obssession with vintage jewellery. Its past life. Its secret history...one careful owner or three? Who knows...but we just can't resist it or the urge to recycle it. Rework it. Repurpose it. Re:design it, into unique handcrafted contemporary pieces for the 21st century woman...well we can't wear all of it ourselves. That would be selfish (apparently).

I give you my heart

From ancient times the heart was thought to be the source of all human emotions and much later became associated with the emotion of love. So it's not surprising that heart symbols are automatically linked to Valentine's Day.

It's not clear when the heart symbol became shaped like it is. Some think that the heart symbol came from early attempts by people to draw the organ they had never seen.

Now it is used to signify love and romance and is therefore linked to Valentine's Day.
