All jewellery on this site is designed and individually handmade by Kerry Hughes in Ceredigion.
I’ve been making jewellery for over nine years and I absolutely love it. I’m also a little bit obsessed with beachcombing and feel incredibly fortunate to live near to the beach in Ceredigion, where I can indulge my love of sea glass hunting and combing the beaches.
I feel strongly about the conservation of biodiversity and also how we treat our fellow humans in the fashion industry. For these reasons I use recycled metals in my jewellery in the form of Eco Silver and Eco Gold. These metals are produced from 100% recycled sterling silver or gold and have a guarantee of authenticity. Their quality is the same as sterling silver or gold and can be hallmarked as such, but does not have the same environmental and social impact as mined silver and gold. I also only use ethically sourced gemstones
My designs are inspired by the coastal environment, by its beautiful ever changing textures and colours and by the creatures that inhabit it.
Each piece of jewellery is individually handmade by me in my little shed using traditional hand tools and avoiding harmful chemicals.
My designs are simple and stylish, I don’t create perfection just beautiful wearable pieces.
I love to make recycled silver wedding and civil partnership rings, these are a beautiful, ethical alternative to traditional wedding rings. They can be made to your specific requirements, making your special ring totally unique. If you would like any of the designs in the wedding ring section in recycled gold please contact me.
10% of sales of the Coast collection is donated to the Marine Conservation Society to promote their amazing work protecting our coastal environment and its wildlife.
Just some of the lovely feedback from my wonderful customers….
‘I just wanted to say a big thank you, the rings both fit perfectly & I definitely made the right decision going for the hammered finish. Thank you so much, they’re absolutely stunning & I can’t wait to be able to wear it!’ Danielle
‘I couldn’t be happier with my wedding ring, both for the fine craftsmanship and the ethics that went into making the ring. It feels so good to support an artisan rather than a big chain store! Kerry was extremely thoughtful and patient with me throughout the process of making the ring, especially because I requested several adjustments including re-sizing and stamping. Her personalised attention put me at ease, and now I have a ring that I will happily wear for the rest of my life.’ Jonathan
