My name is Ali, and I enjoy creating personally handmade pieces of jewellery using swarovski crystals, pearls, semi precious gemstones and glass beads. With pieces ranging from Casual, everydayjewellery wear to Special occasions and Bridal jewellery. Based in Bristol, South West England, UK, I became interested in jewellery making a few years ago and find it very rewarding seeing people enjoy wearing my personally made pieces of jewellery.

In jewellery making I aspire to capture elegance, beauty and individuality in one off pieces. I love the process of working with resistant metal and I hand work sheet silver, rolling, hammering andcoaxing it until it is fine enough to form into delicate flowers and floral sprays. These are entwined into exquisite tiaras, hair adornments and corsages encrusted with precious stones and pearls.

Established in 1881, qualified clock maker William Wickenden Kemp opened his business at 60 Stokes Croft, then a smart and fashionable shopping area.

As a child, growing up in Caracas, Venezuela, I had a passion for jewellery. From as early as three years old I was wearing it. I have an old black & white photo of a group of small children at mynursery, and there I am, the only one covered in plastic necklaces & bracelets! I studied at the London College of Fashion and went on to become a stylist for fashion magazines, and it soon became clear that jewellery was where my real passion lay.
