Hi! I'm Gemma, designer and maker here at Gemma Tremayne Jewellery! I produce exclusive, eco-conscious, handcrafted silver jewellery, inspired by the beauty of the world we live in and by my love of nature, travel and adventure.
Originally from Mid Wales, spending time in nature has always been one of the biggest and most important parts of my life. Whether that be a walk in the forest, a trip to the lake, or paddling in the plunge pool of a waterfall. Our fragile and dramatic earth is rich with inspiration, and now more than ever it is becoming clear that we need to make a change, lessen our destructive behaviours, and begin to protect the incredible planet that we have, and the creatures who live here alongside us. With the smallest movements, we can make the biggest changes! Starting right here with jewellery!
I have always been a maker, for as long as I can remember. I have fond memories of sitting at my Granny's dining table aged six, making, drawing and painting. Creativity has since grown to become an inherent part of who I am. After studying art at school, I went on to do a degree in Model Making with the University of Hertfordshire. Upon graduating, I moved to London and worked on two feature films as a prop maker. I then worked for high-profile architectural and marine companies, making scale models which have been exhibited internationally. But, after a few years of this, I hit burnout. I was ill, diagnosed with chronic migraine and hormone problems and I began to feel as though I was losing my connections with both my creativity, and my love of nature. Ultimately, and most importantly though, I had lost my connection with myself. I had overworked myself in an industry that was feeling less and less right for me. I had moved out of London to be with my then boyfriend (now Husband!) and faced a 2 hour commute to a job that made me ill and that I liked less and less. I couldn't carry on anymore. I'd hit breaking point.
So I decided it was time to make some changes.
I walked out of my "career" job, and moved to Suffolk with my now Husband, to the countryside where I truly feel at home. And that's when I began to forge my path as a jewellery designer and maker. I have never looked back.
Whilst working in London, I realised how important it was to be connected to nature. The model making world is truly incredble, but it is highly wasteful and incredibly damaging to the environment. I longed to do a job which was far more creative, much less harmful to our amazing planet, and allowed me to spend time with the ones I loved. So, Gemma Tremayne Jewellery was born!
Jewellery is a beautiful way of creating deep emotional connections, celebrating the things we love, and making an important statement about who we are. It has the power to connect us to nature, connect us to loved ones, and connect us to ourselves. Jewellery doesn't have to be (and should never be!) an object, but rather a piece of your soul.
I help creative, authentic and nature loving women (like you!) by designing and making unique and enchanting pieces of eco friendly, handcrafted silver jewellery. My jewellery is kind to our planet as well as inspired by it's beauty. It encourages you embrace your authenticity and individuality, connect with our magnificent earth and the ones you love most, whilst living a life full of inspiration and adventures.
Each piece of jewellery I make has a story to tell, and my favourite part is that, the story continues with you!
