It is said that there is nothing new under the sun. We take a favourite recipe and give it a different twist or add a different spirit to a familiar cocktail and create something entirely new. We love reinvention – the art of taking something classic and making it contemporary.
The trick is getting it right. Always improving on the original – and as a result producing something rare and exceptional.
Mr GJ has a passion for the art of taking something intrinsically beautiful and creating out of it something even more extraordinary and sublime. He blends the original with the novel to create something unexpected, surprising and truly sensational. The Island Collection is a fusion of beauty, shape and texture from the natural world made new in precious metal.
The beauty of the Sea Urchin
Elegance is an essential component of all that Mr GJ designs. The Urchin pendant, earrings and cufflinks are a perfect example of recognising the intrinsic beauty existing within something from the natural world and re working it to create something novel yet simultaneously familiar whilst being truly exciting. These pieces are at once sophisticated, elegant and contemporary. Each created from the unique patterns, shape and texture found only in a fragment of sea urchin shell. The result is genuinely original and light catching classic jewellery that can be treasured for a lifetime … just as Mr GJ intended.
Sometimes he’ll look at something made by others and know that it can be made better. The secret is always staying true to the original whilst adding a genuine touch of finesse.
The Infinite Collection … truly contemporary
The Curved T Bangle, recently added to the Infinite Collection, is an example of Mr GJ taking a popular piece and giving it the unique GJ stamp.
Each of the twin Ts has been delicately curved to create an unexpectedly graceful line and the bracelet itself has been transformed by being squared giving it a substantial and solid feel whilst maintaining the essential elegance of the piece.
Similarly, the idea for The Trader Collection’s Precious Metal Beaded Bracelets was adopted from traditional Maasai beading techniques; but instead of using the usual coloured glass beads Mr GJ employs precious metals such as gold and rhodium to create an exceptional range of bracelets worn and loved by so many.
Our jewellery is always hand-crafted and never massed produced so can be created in other precious metals for a truly original piece for the one you love.
