Alice designs and creates handcrafted nature-inspired jewellery and offers personal, one of a kind jewellery services from her leafy-garden studio in Stratford-Upon-Avon. With a strong reputation for beautiful craftsmanship and careful attention to detail, timeless nature-inspired pieces form the cornerstone of her signature style.
I came across Alice's jewellery on Instagram last autumn and I think her nature-inspired pieces are beautiful and very unique. She really cares about the environment and every piece is handcrafted with care using only ethically sourced materials and by buying her pieces you help restore the Caledonian Forest through Trees For Life.
In this series I ask small business owners or professionals in the industry 5 questions, it is my hope that you will find some tips and advice in their answers and that it will build your confidence knowing that everyone started somewhere.
How long have you offered your range to retailers? and how did you get your first stockist?
I have been selling my jewellery in independent shops and galleries in the U.K for around 6 years now. My first stockist came about by them finding me – they were looking to help a customer find a nature-inspired floral engagement ring and found my work online, which was a perfect fit. I started out by taking on a commission for them, and after getting to know each other they asked if I would like to stock their jewellery gallery - they’re still one of my favourite stockists today!
