I am intrinsically creative, always have been, and my life would not be fulfilled if I didn’t spend at least half my time using my hands to create beautiful handmade jewellery.
The pure joy I feel when I make a piece of unique jewellery for someone, whether it’s to mark a special occasion or a treat for yourself, is the driving force behind Louy Magroos.
Handmade jewellery is my passion, creating something with my hands that will be worn forever, become a cherished keepsake, and passed down to future generations is something I will never get tired of.
I studied at the prestigious Birmingham School of Jewellery, and graduated with a First Class Honors Degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing in 2008. Since then I have completed various short courses to further my training and I am always learning through practice. The best part of being a silversmith is there is always more to learn, new skills to hone and new techniques to master.
Sometimes the simplest of designs are my favourite. A simple combination of skinny stacking rings, or a pair of silver cufflinks with bold contrasts and simple lines. I also love to add personalisation to many of my designs, making them unique to the wearer, helping them to celebrate important life moments with jewellery that soon become treasured keepsakes.

Last time I blogged we were just finding our feet with us both working from home and juggling childcare, that feels like a lifetime ago now and yet not much has changed.
We all need a little tender loving care at times and your jewellery is no exception.
