Designer, Hannah Walker, began creating her eponymous jewellery brand at her kitchen table while her children were small back in the early 2000s.
Nearly 30 years at the workbench, combined with almost as many years designing and selling for other brands, means Hannah really knows her diamonds from her Swarovski.
Creativity has been Hannah's passion since she was tiny.
'The best Christmas present I received was my own pair of scissors when I was about 8 years old'
Lucky enough to attend Edinburgh College of Art and The Royal College of Art, Hannah immersed herself in design and craftsmanship. Upon graduating, opportunities began to reveal themselves in the form of designing and making for a wide variety of jewellery brands, including Boodles, Marks & Spencer, Accessorize and Wright & Teague.
Moving around the UK as her family grew, Hannah continued to steadily develop her own collections in tandem with other design and sales roles.
It is important to her that she personally makes each piece. The jewellery is made in its entirety by Hannah in England.
Careful consideration is given to every aspect of the piece, from the weight of the chain, to the finish of silver. Each piece is trialled by an exclusive group of loyal brand ambassadors. Their support means everything to Hannah.
‘It’s so important to surround yourself with people who will give you honest, constructive feedback’
Known for her enthusiasm for detail, Hannah has given as much thought to the presentation of the jewellery, as the jewellery itself.
Inspiration comes from nature, ancient Egyptian carvings, and prints. Her jewellery has a sense of a life lived before, but most importantly, she aims to give the wearer a moment of happiness when they glance down and see the piece, triggering a memory of a loved one, or a time & place.
‘Recently I have introduced more colour into the designs, aspiring to bring more happiness into our lives, through the simplest of ways...colour makes me feel good, feel happy.’
