About Me

I finally decided at the end of August to take the big leap and become a full time Jewellery Designer/Silversmith/Small Business Owner. COVID has changed a lot of people's outlook on life and I realised I want to pursue something that quite simply makes me happy! However, the current economic climate is a difficult time for everyone, particularly independent businesses.

My Aim

Any money I raise here on Crowdfunder will enable me to grow my business by purchasing new tools to develop my current range of jewellery. I source high quality gemstones from trusted suppliers to incorporate into my designs but I understand every person's budget is different and using enamelling techniques would allow me to design and make pieces that are more affordable to these customers yet still create a depth of colour to the product. I would love to be able to purchase a Paragon kiln and other tools for enamelling, so that I have the scope to incorporate more colour into my designs in different ways. I would also like to purchase a Foredom pendant motor as this would speed up my finishing and polishing lead times.

Testimonials

I have received overwhelming feedback from customers who have purchased my jewellery over the past few years:

  • 'A designer with class, style and more talent than others even dream of.'
  • 'I always receive compliments when wearing my pendant and it came in lovely packaging.'
  • 'I bought a pair of earrings for my mum and was impressed by the quality, not only of the material but of the craftsmanship and finesse of the design.'

About My Business: Chamarel Designs

I have every piece of jewellery hallmarked as I am proud of each item and feel a sense of achievement knowing that they all bear my Sponsor’s Mark and approved UK hallmark which carries provenance. This Crowdfunder not only gives you the opportunity to support a small, independent business but also embrace and encourage the slow fashion movement. Each item of my jewellery is individually and meticulously handcrafted, locally and ethically. It is also sustainable as it is made from sterling or fine silver, recycled 9 carat gold or copper and therefore designed to last a lifetime. Where possible I melt down and reuse my scrap silver.

Rewards

You have the option to pledge any amount you wish to my project. I want to show my appreciation for your support so I've come up with a selection of rewards, big and small, to say 'thank you' for helping me.  I have included example photos of these items below but please remember they may differ somewhat from the photos as I will be making each item from scratch. All items will be hallmarked by the London Assay Office and presented in a branded gift box, complete with a dust cover. Please note that the reward amount includes postage but unfortunately rewards can only be shipped within the UK and not internationally.
