In this month's Designer Spotlight, we're so excited to showcase the amazing Charlotte Paternoster who recently started up a second space in our Windsor store!
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF
"I am Charlie, the designer and maker of Charlotte Paternoster Jewellery. I've always loved jewellery and design and found myself living in our amazing city surrounded by expressive art and independent makers, and I knew I wanted to be a part of that world. So about 4 years ago I began studying silversmithing and design."
WHAT INSPIRES YOUR DESIGNS?
"I am mostly inspired to make pieces I would want to wear. I am no perfectionist, I love things to look organic and asymmetric so I think that my pieces reflect that. I love using black and salt and pepper diamonds, because they're gorgeous and unique and seem to be a good balance of a little bit badass and fancy, which I love!"
THE BEST PARTS?
"The best part of creating jewellery is knowing that people get joy from wearing your pieces. That will absolutely never get old. And the hands-on process of making jewellery is actually really therapeutic, though I would not have always said that!"
"My future plans are to continue creating with new techniques and new designs!"
