launched in July 2007 by Karen Cronje.
Karen Cronje is a specialist in designing and making ready to wear affordable and bespoke jewellery.
I originally started making jewellery using the macrame technique in order to sustain an income having emigrated to South Africa with my son in 1982 after being made redundant from Kendalls Manchester.
I returned to my roots and really felt I had found my calling only in this last two years AFTER having travelled the world to find inspiration, I really love what I do every day and love to make new designs, my dream is to be able to employ other crafters like myself and empower them to do what they love.
I pride myself on the quality of my customer service and this is supported by the number of repeat customers I see, All the Jewellery is designed by me and handmade in the UK also by me.
I am a member of MADE IN BRITAIN I make my own jewellery because quality is important and in house is where that begins.
Inspiration for the designs comes from my love of travel being outdoors, I love natural elements and colours and like to mix beads with stones in an asymmetrical style for me it shouldn't always have to conform I like to look outside the box.
My upmost concern is that you are satisfied with your purchase, I have a new collection available in the shop as well as some old favourites to peruse and purchase I have a two day manufacturing step prior to posting if however you would like something especially for you with gemstones and crystals to suit your need then you are in the right place.
If you are unsure in any way and would like guidance on the right stones for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me, I can help you choose the right stones or crystals just from having your birth-date. I want you to love your jewellery as much as I love making it…
