My name is Barbara and I started Love Jewels almost by accident, having started making pieces of keepsake jewellery for family and friends. They proved so popular that I was soon being asked if I could make personalised items for friends of friends and extended family members. And so Love Jewels was born.

With this new found passion for making beautiful items, I went on to undertaken training in traditional jewellery making and silversmithing, and I use these skills to bring some exciting and contemporary designs to you.

When I started Love Jewels, the most important aspect for me was to be able to offer beautiful jewellery and keepsakes to everyone, regardless of their budget. When I became a mum for the first time, I was desperate to have a beautiful piece of jewellery with my daughter's name on it, but found most were out of my price range. And so that ethos continues today, by using a range of metals in my work I aim to offer something for everyone.
