Retro gifts for you or a loved one
There are few more daunting moments in a modern man's life then when he realises that he needs to buy a gift for the special woman in his life. The glossy magazines are full of horror stories about guys getting this wrong and the only example we have to go on is the memory of our father presenting mother with a toaster on Christmas morning.
But fear not, Pip Jolley has the answer with her superbly crafted range of retro jewellery, all hand crafted in north London. Pip is fascinated with the style of the 50s and creates wonderful objects that would make the most incredible gift.
Great gifts or stylish additions to your wardrobe.
She claims that her pieces are all about embracing our history of looking fabulous whatever the situation, creating glamour at all times and never having an excuse. Who can argue against such fantastic enthusiasm?
She divides her work into four categories; the Brilliantine, Jubilee, Rockette and the Rollerette, crafting superb range of rings, necklaces and other lovely things to suit every style. It's little wonder her work has been featured in the V and A Museum and was part of Selfridges Bright Young Things display.
