Here at The Stellar Boutique we’re beginning to feel the festive spirit and with Christmas just around the corner what better way to celebrate than with a fabulous new range of sterling silver jewellery! We are delighted to showcase this exclusive collection of unique, hand made silver jewellery by a very talented designer and special friend , Sarah Jane Vinall . introducing ‘SJV Jewellery design’.
Sarah Jane Vinall, the talent behind the ‘SJV’ collection , gained her degree in Product Design in 2001 at the University for the Creative Arts and it was There that she developed a flare jewellery design . It was also There at Uni where Sarah and I first met! Sharing an equal love for contemporary design , traditional artisans , all things shiny , student life and general good times it was inevitable we would become friends for life!
Upon graduating Sarah spent the following two years travelling around Asia and the Spanish Islands becoming inspired by the traditional practices of design, soaking up different cultures and techniques . On returning to England she started her own successful label designing up-cycled jewellery and accessories , selling her creations at the famous London markets , Spitalfields and Portobello road . From there she went on to work with some of the best fashion stylists and fashion photographers , including Kate Davis-MacLeod , and her jewellery featured in numerous shoots in the national press . In 2006 Sarah was commissioned to design and create the catwalk accessories for designer Michiko Koshino at London Fashion Week for her Spring/Summer collection . After taking time out to have her daughter , Savannah , she has returned to her passion . Getting busy in her workshop she is back with a stunning new collection With beautiful contemporary design inspired by traditional artisans , creating unique pieces that do their bit for Mother Earth! Every item is handmade to the highest standard using recycled materials with honest , traditional crafts . Passionate about reprocessing different artefacts and giving unwanted everyday objects a new lease of life in another form , she maintains the constructed elements of a design piece , exposing it to show the craftsmanship and uses recycled precious metals for her work . Many pieces bear a raw , hand textured finish so that the wearer can be assured each piece is completely individual .
……AND HERE IS THE NEW COLLECTION…..
Two great friends with the same vision , hatching a plan (over a glass of Sangria in the Spanish sunshine) to combine forces and showcase the ‘SJV’ jewellery collection exclusively at The Stellar Boutique…..Enjoy
Each piece of SJV Jewellery is hallmarked by the London Assay Office, to give you the guarantee of the recycled precious metal content of the item you are buying.
