The Story of a Jeweler: Marissa Christian from Wink Jewellery

My name is Marissa Christian, and I’m the designer behind Wink Jewellery. I started Wink Jewellery in 2011 whilst on maternity leave with my daughter, Lucia. I’ve always been a creative person, and loved making jewellery, but working as a Chartered Accountant left me exhausted at the end of each day, so it wasn’t something I ever had the energy to pursue. Having a baby was life changing, to say the least. I saw my life in a whole new way – it was too short to waste doing a job that I wasn’t passionate about. I decided then that I wanted to own my own business, so I could do something I loved, while being able to stay home with my daughter.

My favourite materials are pearls – however I found that they are often seen as old fashioned and conservative by many younger people. I experimented by combining pearls with a wide range of materials to make exciting and modern pieces that would appeal to a younger age group. Read More »
