TIS THE SEASON TO SHOP HANDMADE

XMASTwas the weeks before Christmas and all through the lands,up popped the stores and markets for all to flock ,and nab themselves some bejewelled stock …????

Thankfully my shopping knowledge fairs better than my poetry skills.  This Christmas season take advantage of the open studios, pop up stores and craft markets and buy a loved one (or yourself, no judgements here) a real treat for their jewellery box; a fine crafted handmade piece of jewellery from one of the UK’s talented designers.

Here are my picks of the stores and markets opening this week.

C159 Open M- S from 9th Dec – 22nd Dec

C/159 might only have one jeweller in residence but trust me Lenique Louis is well worth the visit.  Delivering statement jewels which will be sure to earn you some brownie points this X-mas . Head down and visit Lenique in Camden from today until 22nd December.

For me it’s not Christmas without a trip to Somerset House. With the legendary ice rink and the Christmas Arcade the spirit and magic of Christmas is well and truly alive in this gorgeous London Landmark.  In residence in Somerset House in their beautiful curated room  which features artwork from Peter Crnokrak are three of my favourite jewellers; Myia Bonner, Ros Milar and Clarice Price Thomas who have collaborated to launch the Ag 3Collective.
