The Sunday Studio jewellery (originally P&J Jewellery) is all handcrafted by Olivia and myself, at my home in Cleethorpes. After mental health struggles, in 2016, I started making jewellery. I had to my place at university studying fashion promotion and additionally was unable to work. Having studied media, photography and textiles at college I knew I was creative. Jewellery making felt like a natural progression. I have always looked at things with the view of wanting to know how it is made and often challenged myself to make it. This mindset helped me teach myself how to work with silver and consequently design my own collection of jewellery.
I have fallen in love with jewellery making. When it came to returning to university to resume studying fashion promotion, I decided to give up my space. The fashion industry wasn’t for me ,especially with the surge in fast fashion. I wanted to create sustainable, timeless pieces that would be treasured forever instead.
I make my jewellery from my studio at home in Cleethorpes with the help of my studio assistant, my dog Mable.
It is important to me that my business doesn’t have any negative impact on our environment. Made using recycled silver, all my jewellery is sustainable. On top of this, I package and ship my products in recyclable and biodegradable materials. I recycle as much of the studio’s waste as possible and try to keep my plastic pollution to a minimum.
The same two hands design, make, assemble and finally finish each piece of jewellery. Each piece is handcrafted with the utmost care, ensuring the highest possible quality.
I believe in supporting small businesses and independent makers and designers in any way that I can. Shop small and support your local high street where you can.
