Kate Hamilton-Hunter – recycled jewellery
I mentioned before that Valentine’s Day isn’t really Valentine’s day in my family, but renamed ‘hearts day’ – so at this time of year, anything in that shape catches my eye. Since this week we are loosely themed around upcycled and recycled finds – Kate Hamilton-Hunter fits right in! Kate Hamilton-Hunter is a jewellery designer specialising in recycling vintage biscuit tins and transforming them into hand-made jewellery which is original, unique and eco-friendly. Kate and her two talented jewellery makers, Bryony Carrington and Cariad Loughlin make these unique jewellery designs from modern biscuit tins, old tea caddies, antique toffee tins, and vintage sweetie tins. They can turn an family heirloom (grandmas’s button tin) into a truly unique piece of jewellery so you can wear your family memories, instead of leaving them on a shelf to gather dust!
