My name is Sarah Fernandes, the jewellery designer behind De Veley Atelier. I have a passion for creating unique, sustainable jewellery using traditional methods, wherever possible.

My earrings are inspired by the beautiful Zulu beadwork that was such a big part of my childhood, I used to marvel at the detail and skill of the work- my earrings are my own nod to this beautiful work.

I was born and educated in South Africa and moved to the UK after finishing university to soak up the London lifestyle. 14 years on and with a beautiful family, I now live in the breath-taking Weald of Kent which offers constant inspiration for my work.

In a world full of off-the-shelf shopping, I am striving to celebrate the British Artisan culture and bring handmade passion back to the fore.
