Heidi fell for the jewellery industry during an apprenticeship with a master goldsmith in Hatton Garden. Running between setters and polishers in London's jewellery quarter, she encountered the finest craftsmanship. Like the engraver in his eighties with a lifetime in the trade but no apprentice to pass his skills onto. And her growing concern that once the old guard had gone, so too would their knowledge.Ignited with a passion for preserving endangered crafts, Heidi has combined tradition with innovation. She's ghost-made and designed for a host of trailblazing female jewellers, mentoring trainee goldsmiths along the way. Her jewellery collections are intricate yet wearable daily jewels with an ancient feel (A second skin of gold accents you’ll never want to take off.)
Paired back but potent in unexpected texture and colour combinations that gently pop. She plays with contrasts, sitting soothing turquoise next to opulent rubies or placing saturated blue lapis with the punchy facets of a bright burnt orange sapphire. Obsessed with gemstones since forever, Heidi hand-cuts and shapes them to release their magic. She sets each into buttery, recycled gold for one-of-a-kind treasures. Heidi's approach to sustainability embraces an ethical and responsible use of materials. She honours the finite, rare nature of precious metals and gems using 100% recycled gold, antique diamonds. Coloured stones are sourced from small-scale artisanal miners.
Almost every element of production is kept in-house. It's a closed-loop set-up of many processes acquired from nurturing age-old techniques. These allow a deep connection to raw materials and a short supply chain. The joy of making is where it's at for Heidi—immersed at the bench in her studio, working with her hands.
Once a potting shed, Heidi’s studio is set behind the sunny façade of a Cotswold stone cottage in Stroud where she designs and makes her collections, works to commission and runs small group workshops.
