I love to design and make elegant, wearable jewellery and accessories, and I collect beads, fabric, and buttons only when I am inspired by them. I never shop for materials with a particular design in mind, I wait until something speaks to me and then I tend to buy in small quantities. This means that most of my designs are only available in limited numbers, or are one-of-a-kind. If you are wondering why 'The Chown Jewels'... it's because my surname is Chown and the wordplay makes me smile and seemed the perfect fit for a UK-based designer!
As so many people have sensitive skin - myself included - If you would prefer me to substitute any of the copper findings (ear-wires, clasps, etc) with sterling silver ones please convo me (by clicking on ‘contactTheChownJewels’) before purchasing and I will happily oblige.
Please not that all of my designs are made in a pet free and smoke free environment.
