Jennifer Matchett found this brand after she realised there was a gap in the market for stylish, tortoiseshell earrings that are elegant and in the perfect shades of brown.

The first pair she ever made were created from acetate she found in a secondhand store. After receiving much interest she decided to develop the concept into something more.

Much of the jewellery we buy has a huge negative impact on our environment. However Jennifer uses a cellulose acetate, that is made from the natural fibres of cotton and wood pulp materials.

The process starts from a block of acetate that is cut down and moulded into gorgeous shapes and colours. Every piece is unique.
