The Beginning

 

I have been surrounded by jewellery almost as far back as I can remember. My mother has been in the jewellery business since I was very young, so it seemed quite natural for me to inherit the same passion.

I started making my own pieces in my early teens, and then went on to learn my craft, and get a degree at London Guildhall University. Since then, I have been making production work, and unique pieces, in partnership with my mother at Curiouser & Curiouser.

When I was approached by a dear friend of mine, to make a keepsake of his recently deceased dog Cory, I was a little hesitant. First of all I had never worked with hair before, and my only reference to this kind of jewellery was the somewhat morbid Victorian rings with braided hair.

I accepted the challenge, but decided I would make the piece more about love than grief. I also wanted to reflect the personality of my friend in the piece, so that when he wore it, the piece would be as much a part of him, as was Cory.

Word got around, and I started getting commissions for people as well as pets. Due to this quiet demand for a precious memento, I decide to form a small company, Forget You Not, dedicated to designing and producing exquisite jewellery that honours the unique artifacts within.

A unique way to remember your loved ones. A keep sake that is both affordable and beautiful. All commissions welcome. We create custom made ‘one of a kind’ pieces tailored to suit your individual desires.
