MIRABELLE C37 Mirabelle founder Veronique Henry has travelled extensively throughout her life, gaining a one-of-a- kind perspective in creating and sourcing jewellery. The daughter of a Parisian silversmith, Véronique’s passion for South East Asia is translated in the intricacy and vibrant colour combinations of her designs, fusing ethnic and contemporary aesthetics. With a strong belief in the power of jewellery to uplift the spirits, collections are imbued with symbolism and meaning, from crystal stones to ancient talismans. Most of Mirabelle jewellery is produced by fair trade suppliers using sterling silver, 22k gold plated metals, brass, bronze, and semi-precious stones, from trusted sources. Mirabelle also produces a British Made collection, Hand Made in Britain. Mirabelle is launching a talisman collection at Pulse, which is inspired by the four elements: air, water, fire and earth, boasting celestial symbols. WILD FAWN JEWELLERY JE3 Emma Barnes created Wild Fawn in January 2015 when her love for making and drawing transformed into the love of working with silver and gold to make timeless jewellery that can be enjoyed every day. Each piece of jewellery is made by hand in her London studio. With a background in Anthropology, Emma knows that it is incredibly important to learn about where and how her materials are sourced and how people and cultures can be negatively affected by mining silver and gold.This is why Emma uses recycled silver and Fairtrade gold to make her jewellery so it can be made and worn with a clean conscience. Emma’s mission is to spread the word about eco-friendly, ethical jewellery that doesn’t need to cost the earth.
