Hello, I'm Poppy the artist behind all the work on this site. I love jewellery, making it, wearing it and matching what I make with the right woman to wear it.
Muse at Glasgow SSE Hydro 2016
My jewellery springs from my love of music, I channel the energy and emotion of music through my synaesthesia to make unconventional jewellery.
My synaesthesia takes the form of seeing sound so I have a strong visual impression of shape, colour, movement and sometimes texture when I listen to music.
The Cure at Wembley 2016
Drawings made from music on my studio wall.
So this is all me, what I was put on earth to do. I love music and my unusual relationship with it - I want to make jewellery like my favourite musicians make music; glorious, a little dark, a bit weird, slightly bonkers but embracing, energising, layered and complex...
I want you to be able to take a piece of my jewellery full of this energy and strengthen yourself with it.
Jewellery has an ancient...well, magic for want of a better word.
I love the power it has to make you feel the best version of yourself, and I want to share that with you.
I discovered many of my customers use it as a source of strength, a reflector of mood, a talisman, a keeper of memory, a marker of identity, a booster of confidence, a glamorous adornment or finishing touch.

Why is the jewellery we wear such an essential part of our self-expression?
It is about feeling as much as it is about looks or materials. Deep down, the part of you that needs to feel confident or show strength, the you that has to handle whatever the day may throw at you. The inner self that wants to express its dynamic energy, that says "I've got this".
"We Can Work It Out" Brooch
It must connect on the inside. How often have you put on an outfit but only felt “finished” once you put on your jewellery? If you are like me, every day!
"I love finding jewellery that expresses the unspoken you...like the fireworks in your heart when you hear your favourite song." Anita - Billericay
All the jewellery lovers I have spoken to told me they make a conscious decision to wear something different.
Guitar Distortion Earrings
One of my rules is that I never make the same thing twice, I mean why do earrings have to match? No reason at all.
To minimise the environmental impact of my workshop practices I use recycled sterling silver from old and broken silverware. Melted down and remade into my jewellery.
All my work is hallmarked so you have the assurance the silver is the correct quality.

Finally, it comes to you carefully and beautifully packaged in a handmade kimono fabric bag and a repurposed vintage tin that fully protects it during shipping.
