He also sources diamonds and unusual semi-precious stones which are then incorporated into the designs of each customer’s specification.
We had the pleasure to talk to Paul and ask him a little bit more about his jewellery and designs at our Press and Bloggers Day event on Saturday 2nd June.
Interview as follows…
1.)Good Afternoon Paul. Thank you for attending our event today and also taking the time to talk to me about your collection here at our summer boutique! Firstly, can I ask you to talk me through your designs?
Yes, of course! My collection is music inspired, I have always loved music so I decided to incorporate that love into my designs. For example, I have a collection called Green Day, which is inspired by the band of course! Also the stones I use are organic and some of them are recycled.
I take specifications from my customers as well, where my aim is to design a piece that is not solely an expression of my creativity but also an interpretation of your unique and personal style.
2.) That’s great! So, how do you feel about exhibiting your collection within our summer boutique with other similar ethical designers?
Its great to be apart of everything! Its good to be within the industry where there is a nice mix of people. Its also different, as I am usually linked to the high street.
3.)Lastly, considering we are at our Press and Bloggers Day event- which we have organised to promote our boutique and your designs on all social media sites, can I just ask what social media means to you and your brand?
Yes, its good to get content and to get in on people! Its makes the whole experience more personable.
Why not come by and see Paul’s amazing handmade designs for yourself here at 7 Thayer Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 3JH.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
