Hi, I’m Tegen, the designer, maker … and everything else behind the Tegen Jewellery brand.
Based in Cornwall UK but with a lust for seeing and exploring the world, I have been making jewellery since 2002 when I was 17, after completing various courses in silver smithing, jewellery design, tool making and stone setting alongside various full time jobs I decided to build up my workshop and started up my own company.
The name Tegen Jewellery was almost a given (thanks to my parents) as ‘Tegen’ is a Cornish girls name meaning ‘Pretty Little Thing’ which was perfect for relating to jewellery and my love of creating pretty little things that make people smile.
I specialise in bespoke commissions using a variety of hand picked gem stones but produce ranges of stock that is spread between my own website and my lovely stockists. Always learning, always growing and searching, Inspired by all things sea related, the stones I source and tribal jewellery.
My work is my passion and I feel very lucky to have a job that I love and have my custom built workshop at the bottom of my garden.
