The Team

Jewellery Moments was founded by Alice Thompson in 2012.

Alice, born and raised in a small village in Cumbria and now living in the North East, handcrafts every piece using inspiration from specific moments in time.Using gemstomes, Swarvoski elements and fair trade beads to name a few, Alice creates “one of a kind” pieces that will stand out in a crowd.

We believe in our world and the environment. Using this ethos we only use suppliers within the UK and we use Fairtrade beads such as the Mzuri and Kashmiri beads.

Alice has featured in The Crack MagazineJesmond Local and Daisy Green Magazine and has been interviewed on BBC Radio Newcastle and the BBC World Service.
