The first permanent location from a quirky London jeweller
Kentish Town grows more chic by the day – a fact cemented by the arrival of this charming little shop by Central Saint Martins trained jewellery designer Jessica de Lotz. The perfectly proportioned boutique is de Lotz’s first permanent location, and has been lovingly done up by herself and an interior designer friend. Beautiful details include a pocket-watch-shaped porthole and an array of vintage cabinets holding tools in the (equally gorgeous) studio in the back. Oh, and plenty of taxidermy.
Passersby can watch de Lotz at work or peruse her idiosyncratic trinkets (from £65), many of which feature the trademark wax seal inspired designs that have adorned the wrists, fingers and necks of a league of famous fans. And while you can go in and buy any of the items on display, many seek out de Lotz for her bespoke designs (like 9ct gold personalised stacking rings from £95), that you can dream up with her in the shop while you wait.
As well as jewellery, you can get hold of a selection of goods by other brands handpicked by the designer herself, including plenty of photogenic stationery by Studio Sarah, and candles by Koibito.
