This gorgeous little place was launched by award-winning jewellery designer Rachel Entwistle in 2015 to showcase and sell her unique pieces, as well as few others by select guest designers. Inspired by 'culture, symbolism and the arcane' discovered while on her travels, Entwistle utilises the ancient concepts behind amulets, talismans and other kinds of protective symbols in her designs and contemporises them with influences from her east London environment. The collections, which cater for both men and women, feature earrings, rings, nose rings, bracelets, cuffs and chains. With themes ranging from zodiac to metamorphosis to alchemy and even a special collection for pieces worn by the spellbinding singer FKA Twigs.
