Recycling jewellery with a treasured history
Having inherited a love of jewellery from her beloved Nana, Annie, Helen has a deep belief in the power of jewellery to tell its story beyond words. While sometimes a client wishes to commission a new piece from design inception to finished creation, on other occasions the need is to remodel a beloved piece of jewellery that embodies the memory of a loved one.
It’s a task for which Helen is perfectly suited, with her industry experience as well as her innate ability to connect, she handles the treasured jewellery of a loved one with respect and sensitivity. She understands the desire to preserve the history of such a piece, while still ensuring it can be safely worn by future generations. She knows that its intrinsic value matters less than the deeper emotional values that it holds.
Inspired by her Nana, Helen has created Annie’s Legacy [link], which offers services such as resizing of rings, remodelling of jewellery, and recycling gold for either monetary value or the creation of ‘new-old’ bespoke items. A 15% contribution is made to the East Cheshire Hospice [link] for all work undertaken or purchases made in memory of a loved one.
