I founded Margot & Mila in 2016 after leaving behind a career as a financial analyst in the City and looking for something a little more creative to fill my days. I began working as a PA and production manager in the jewellery industry for around 3 years, until I was finally inspired in early 2015 to develop a collection using the skills I had previously learned, supplemented by various evening courses to build up my knowledge of the many processes involved in making jewellery by hand.
Margot & Mila was born out of a love for Victorian and Georgian antique jewellery and the incredible attention to detail involved in hand-carving intricate pieces from these eras over many hours. Through Margot & Mila I hope to create my own modern version of this art form, whilst keeping a vintage feel to each design. I use traditional silversmithing and wax carving techniques in making my collection pieces which I supplement with one-off vintage finds from antique fairs I regularly visit around the country. Expect to find an array of charms, trinkets, animals, symbols and other personalised gifts that give their wearer a feeling of playful nostalgia, safe in the knowledge that each piece has been hand crafted here in the UK.
At Margot & Mila we use only the highest quality sterling silver and 18 carat gold sourced in London's traditional jewellery district, Hatton Garden, and all stones are ethically sourced from dealers in the same area. I also offer a bespoke design service for one-off commission pieces including wedding bands, engagement rings, custom designs and engraved pieces - please just ask!
