Jewellery is so sentimental, telling a thousand stories, but I understand that tastes change and times move on. I believe in holding on to the sentiment of heirloom pieces and so have created a service to carefully rework unloved or forgotten about jewels. Whether it’s a family heirloom or just something that’s been gathering dust in the sock drawer or safe, together we can turn it into something sustainable, stylish, and every bit as sentimental as the original.

Roxanne is a great believer in making things work, whether its changing the stones, resetting them into a new piece or melting down the metal to create a completely new original piece. We work with our clients, to establish a new style that suits the wearers everyday needs to their specified budget. Using CAD and freehand illustrations, designs are created for the clients approval.
