Handmade jewellery for all styles and ages
Tell us about yourself, how you got started, and about the brand.
I started A Weathered Penny 4 years ago, where I only offered adults jewellery. In November 2014 A Mini Penny was born. A Mini Penny is our children’s line of jewellery, which is inspired by my grandmother’s collection of porcelain animals she used to collect and I admired as a child but couldn’t touch!
What is it like seeing someone wearing your jewelry?
It is crazy! When I’m on the tube and I see someone wearing one I want to scream with excitement! It’s so incredibly amazing and lovely when people come up to me and say how much they love our products.
What made you decide to market towards women and children?
As a women I felt bored of wearing the same high street jewellery as everyone else and wanted something more interesting to wear but was still affordable. So I decided to start designing my own. Friends and family loved them, so I decided I would take the plunge and open my website. Now people all over the world wear it and I haven’t looked back since!
What is your favorite piece you have ever created and what made it so special?
My personal favourite is my Geometric Block necklace for adults. I think it’s so simple and versatile, it just goes with everything! For the kids it would have to be the Unicorn, because everyone wants to be a unicorn right!?
