Charlotte Lowe’s collections of handmade jewellery celebrate today’s special moments with the memories that will always matter. Inspired by the joys brought to us through the simple moments in life, Charlotte's uniquely styled silhouette designs depict precious memories shared with family and friends to evoke sentimental feelings from within.
Our story begins with Charlotte's mother and father, an aspiring artist and a design engineer. From an early age her parents encouraged her to create and as a result Charlotte has spent her life making and being inspired by those around her. Collecting keepsakes along her travels, from miniature shells and pebbles to photographs that capture those most unforgettable little moments. Charlotte would place her memories and inspiration inside keepsake boxes, journals and scrapbooks.
In 2009, Charlotte Lowe graduated from University with a BA Hons Degree in Art & Design. Eager to start up her own business, just a few months later, she acquired a workshop in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter. There Charlotte began to develop her distinctive collections by transforming of photographs and mementoes into intricate items of jewellery. Where she would later find she was in fact following in the footsteps of her Great Grandfathers who had been working in the quarter as jewellers since 1861.
Working mainly in sterling silver and 22ct gold vermeil with limited editions also available in gold and platinum, each piece within the collection has been etched to reveal an enchanting image upon the surface. Whether it’s a romantic gesture, a bond shared between parent and child or an admiration for their beloved pet, Charlotte’s collections draw customers in to find a special gift to signify those precious moments spent with their loved ones. She aims not to follow fashion but to connect with people from the heart, drawing out memories through timeless pieces her customers and their families can cherish forever.
In addition to an extensive range of jewellery, Charlotte Lowe also works to commission, handcrafting beautiful items from customers own photographs. See photographs transformed into a distinctive silhouette design or turned into a detailed image onto the surface.
