Beautiful jewellery lovingly handmade in rural Oxfordshire
After graduation in 2006 Charlotte returned to her hometown in Oxfordshire where she started life working as an independent jeweller and silversmith on the Cowley Road in Oxford City, whilst also teaching metalwork at a local college.
She has since built up a successful small business and large customer base, and in September 2012 Charlotte moved to a workshop in a picturesque rural location 4 miles from Oxford in order to open a teaching workshop - In Dec 2012 The Oxfordshire School of Jewellery opened for business, offering a full programme of courses and classes to all students.
Charlotte designs and makes jewellery and silverware, which she sells through a range of shops and galleries across the U.K. She also makes special items to commission such as wedding and engagement rings - working to a specific design from the customer, or working alongside them to create that special piece.
"Jewellery tells a story. Each piece has meaning to the wearer whether it is worn every day, or kept for special occasions - jewellery can remind us of people, places and stories, and can evoke memories and stir emotions. Jewellery is a powerful tool - It ties us to our past, present and future, and gives the wearer a sense of 'self'."
Charlotte is happy to discuss commissions on any scale.
