I have been surrounded by jewellery almost as far back as I can remember. My mother has been in the jewellery business since I was very young, so it seemed quite natural for me to inherit the same passion.
I started making my own pieces of jewellery in my early teens, and then went on to learn my craft. I studied for my degree at London Guildhall University in the late 90's. Since then, I have been making unique pieces of jewellery in partnership with my mother at Curiouser & Curiouser.
Forget You Not began when I was approached by a dear friend of mine who commissioned me to make a keepsake of his recently deceased dog Cory. I was a little hesitant at first, as I had never worked with hair before, and my only reference to this kind of jewellery was the somewhat morbid Victorian rings with braided hair.
I accepted the challenge, but decided I would make the piece more about love than grief. I also wanted to reflect the personality of my friend in the piece, so that when he wore it, the piece would be as much a part of him, as Cory.
Word got around, and I started getting commissions for people, as well as pets. Due to this quiet demand for a precious memento, I decided to form my small company Forget You Not, dedicated to designing and producing exquisite jewellery that honours the unique artifacts within.
Providing a way to remember your loved ones. A keep sake that is both affordable and beautiful. I create custom made 'one of a kind' pieces tailored to suit your individual desires.
All commissions welcome.
