Jewellery Giveaway Jewellers: Part II
Here's Part II of the fifty jewellers from around the world who's jewellery was won buy those who donated to the Support UK Black Jeweller Hardship Fund:
26. Maya Magal
Maya Magal crafts modern jewellery by hand. Whether a birthstone charm or a mixed-metal ring, all our pieces are designed by our founder, Maya, and then handmade in small batches by skilled artisans. Maya spent years learning her craft in Hatton Garden, before opening up a workshop and creative studio where her contemporary designs come to life. Today in our three shops across London, we invite customers to experiment and play with our designs. As far as we’re concerned, rings are made for stacking, necklaces for layering and silver and gold for mixing.
27. Hannah Weston
Most of the jewellery in Hannah Weston's collection is crafted by hand from scratch using silver wire or sheet. Some pieces are cast (copied) in silver from a piece of wax carved into a shape by hand, these pieces are hand finished. Some designs have gemstones or pearls and these are always genuine and natural.
28. Ellie Air Jewellery
Lauren Davidson founded Ellie Air in 2013 to revive the lost art of the Family Jeweller. She began her training as a jewellery apprentice in Cambridge, later advancing her skills at Central St Martins in London and working for an established brand in New York City. During her time at the renowned Alchimia school in Florence Lauren discovered a passion for the Italian language and to this day all her collections are given romantic Italian names.
Ellie Air, originally based in East London, relocated to the Jurassic Coast in 2019. Every piece of Ellie Air jewellery is designed and hand-crafted by Lauren and her team in Dorset, England. Beautiful precious gemstones and unique diamonds are hand-selected to meet your vision of the perfect jewellery piece, with an ever-present commitment to quality and ethics.
29. Darcy and Jazz
Carol Cole is the owner and designer of Darcy & Jazz Jewellery. Her background started out in a completely different sector. Working as PA to board level TV and Radio MD and VPs, she felt that something was missing and felt her creative urges needed a platform. Enrolling on a course at Lambeth College in Vauxhall in 2006-07 she completed the NCFE Level 1 and Level 2 Certificate in Creative Craft in Jewellery. This gave her the foundation to continue her new passion to continue learning and develop and hone her craft. Carol went on to become a student at Flux Jewellery School in Camberwell, a thriving creative community where she continued to develop her skills. The desire to own something more exclusive and bespoke continues that passion in Darcy & Jazz Jewellery. Everything is handmade by Carol in her home studio with access to a studio space in south London. Working mostly in sterling silver and precious/semi-precious stones.
Carol is inspired by her African and Jamaican culture, fashion, music, nature, art and what it means to be a black woman in this world.
30. Eclectic Eccentricity
Your Eclectic Eccentricity pieces are made here in our Norwich, UK, studio by our skilled team of jewellers. Furthering careers within the local area and fostering a sense of community with other like-minded businesses around us is a core principle of EE Jewellery.

But our sense of community isn't just local. Here at Eclectic Eccentricity, we're a small company made up entirely of women. Being in the UK, we have the privileged position of having resources readily available to us which enable a female-run business to flourish and thrive. We want all women, all over the world, to have the same opportunities.
