“I have been creative for as long as I can remember. I have always looked to nature and animals as inspiration for my art, I am particularly drawn to art nouveau for that reason, so it seemed like a natural step to train in jewellery design and creation.
Many years ago I started an equestrian jewellery line which combined my love of horses and jewellery, this business grew rapidly and I now have clients from all over the world. Most of my customers come back time and time again to order new pieces to add to their collection, and after so many requests from customers that wished to own bespoke pieces that were not equestrian related, I decided to open Raposa Jewellery.
Each item of jewellery is handcrafted using traditional techniques, a sketch is made and turned into a piece without the use of technology, as this gives each item a unique soul that has more value as a hand me down keepsake than technologically produced items.
I am delighted to make simple modifications to existing designs or create wholly original works from your imagination, please contact me to discuss your individual wishes.”
