Mediteranian Magic

…. The royal blue waters and baby blue skies of the Mediterranean have long since been an inspiration for artists, travellers, writers and poets alike, so it was only a matter of time until the bright colours of the Mediterranean isles featured in this mermaid collection of pieces. …. From Rhodes to Capri, Comino to Stromboli, our range of Mediterranean studs are what every mermaid dreams of. Without the hassle of big hoops and dangling earrings getting caught in your hair or on your clothes, but still with all the impact and the colour, these little beauties are perfect for you summer wardrobe. …. Each design is unique in its setting and its handpicked stones, for a piece that is perfect for you. From deep blue opals, pulling images from the deep blue sea, to the bright turquoise, from the Mediterranean sky, our collection of studs belong in every mermaids treasure box. ….   …. For an extra special splash of flower bloom pink, our Lampedusa studs are a pair of hand-picked 5mm raspberry coloured rubies set in sterling silver with sterling silver mill- grain detailing. …. …. We love summer and we love the Med (and of course we love jewellery) so this beautiful design idea ticked all of the boxes for us! Let us know if you love it as much as we do! ….

Stone Individuality

Stone Individuality For many people, across many cultures, for centuries now, different stones have had different meanings and have been worn for different reason. Stones can mean different things for different people, whether it’s an attachment to a person, a time or a place, an acknowledgement of heritage or a link to a property that the stone may hold. While some of us love to know and attach a meaning to our stones of choice, others simply love the stones themselves – just as valid a reason to be wearing your very own treasure. We have some favourite stones here at Tegen Jewellery and we’d like to tell you why we adore them so!   Moonstone – used here in everything from necklaces to rings. We gaze lovingly into the depths of these dreamy, fiery moonstones we see passing through our workshop here. Each one is unique in its colour and light play, each one perfect for its piece. Moonstone has been revered for centuries as a stone with great power, our fascination with it no doubt rooted in our fascination with the moon itself. This ethereal stone is associated with powers for cleansing the mind and ridding negative emotions. Moonstone crystals hold a strong feminine presence, mother moon guiding the way as she always has – this stone is connected to the inner goddess and her empowering energies. It is no surprise at all that our girl power team at Tegen Jewellery adore this enchanting stone. We love her fire and calm, through shades of blue, pink, shimmering white and streaks of dark red. Moonstone is a stone...

Something New and Something Blue.

  That’s right merpeople, wedding season has arrived! We adore this time of year, when happiness is abundant and people celebrate their special days. We absolutely love being a part of that here at Tegen Jewellery – which is when we hear commissions coming calling! We’ve worked with lots of lovelies over the years, working on personal, hand designed pieces for engagement rings or wedding rings (or what we like the most, BOTH!). Every aspect of the process is important for us, from inviting you to the workshop, sitting and designing your perfect piece, getting it ready on time and of course, seeing photos of smiling faces at the end of it all! We’re super easy to get in contact with, just send us an email at info@tegenjewellery.com and we can start making plans! We’ve had some spectacular pieces commissioned in the past, they’re often documented and posted on our Instagram page (@tegenjewellery) after the occasion so there’s lots of inspiration for you to look at.   April is the month of the Diamond babies after all, so if your loved one has an April birthday, then this may be the perfect month to pop the ever exciting question! On our website we have the beautiful Amura Diamond ring and Le Grand Amour diamond ring to set your ideas sparkling. If vintage is your muse then have a look at our Treasures of Old and the stunning 5 Diamond Star Set ring for a splash of class. What are you waiting for, get in touch!   We love everything about weddings, particularly boho glam ones, so have a little...

Magical Mother’s Day

Lest you’ve forgotten, it’s Mother’s Day on the 11th of March! Believe it or not, the year had roll around again, and now it is the time we celebrate the wonderful women in our life, be they mothers of a conventional sense, or just those magic women who have been there for us, always. Mother’s Day gifting doesn’t need to be difficult – we’ve got your back for some ideas if you feel a little out of your depth.   Thoughtfulness is definitely key when winning over their hearts this Mother’s Day. A homemade cake or plate of decorated biscuits is super cute, super fun and the lady in your life is sure to love how sweet they are (pun very much intended)! Instead of buying a bunch of flowers, pick a bunch from your local area. They don’t have to be big or fancy, but the thought in going out and making the effort will definitely win you a smile. We all love a natural bouquet anyway! Printed out photos in a sweet little photo album is always a sure winner, particularly if you can find photos from when you were growing up – you’ll have happy tears and hugs (a successful gift!) If you want to go the extra mile, why not treat your main mermaid with a piece of jewellery as special as she is? We’ve got a range of things for the perfect fit, from necklaces, to anklets or stacking rings. Have a little gaze upon our Adira Ring – a minimalistic triangle, a symbol of feminine power and strength – we could think of...

February-born fairies do we have some treats for you! To match the wonderful colours that are appearing in the landscape, we have the fabulous Aquata Blue Opal Ring. This beauty is shot through with fiery streaks of pinks, blues and greens, and nothing says spring time quite like it.

Our 2018 Wish-List of Wonders

Our 2018 Wish-List of Wonders Writing our Christmas lists here at Tegen Jewellery has got us to dreaming of all the beauties we want to get making for you as this New Year rolls in. A shiny, sparkly new year calls for some shiny, sparkly new jewellery making toys! We thought we’d share our wish list with you and give you a bit of an insight into the mind of a jewellery maker, as well as introducing you to one of our favourite suppliers: Kernowcraft. The Ball Pein Hammer Although this may not seem exciting to you, for texture loving jewellery makers, this hammer is the dream! The Ball Pein Hammer lets us create the gorgeous texture we’re always after in our hammered bangles and rings. The weight of this hammer is super useful for when we make our chunkier pieces with thicker sheet metal and wires. We would absolutely love this hammer as an addition to our workshop to get creating some brand new textured pieces for you to layer with your chunky knits this winter!   https://www.kernowcraft.com/products/silversmithing-and-tools/jewellers-hammers/item/ball-pein-hammer-c4 White Diamond Rose Cut Cabochons We are all about those naturally gorgeous gemstones here at Tegen Jewellery and so these beautiful white diamonds are very high up on our wish list. Just imagine all the delights we could make for you with these twinkling beauties. It would be stacking-ring galore as these pieces would go wonderfully with the turquoises and blue hues that we’re always playing around with. We’re very aware of where we source our gem stones from, and so these delightfully sweet, ethically sourced white diamonds would be...

It’s a Very Merry Christmas Time!

Are you as excited as we are for the festive season? There is something magical in the air at this time of year, from fairy lights, to hot chocolate, to snow days (come on Cornwall!) – it’s sparkly everywhere you go.    We love a duvet ay, with a hot chocolate and a Christmas film, or a walk on the beach, rugged up in hats, scarves and gloves. We adore a Christmas market and an old favourite of a Christmas song. We hope you have a wonderful festive season, and we reckon we can top it all off with some sparkling gifts for you and your loved ones.   Turquoise for Days, December Babies! Oh how we’ve got you covered if you’re a December born mermaid. Turquoise GALORE is our absolute specialty!

Or, for the wonder-women around us, the Senara Necklace in Turquoise is fit for the fantastic mermaids to whom we wish to give something back! Senara means hero in Cornish, and so is perfect for the heroines in your life this December. To switch it up a bit and cater for the lunar goddess that you know, how about our beautiful Marama Turquoise Hoops. Full of poise and elegance, and captivating like the moon light they’re named after, these beautiful earrings would make the perfect gift for your favorite December dream girl.      ***Favourite of the Month*** Bronwen – Welsh Goddess of Love...

Autumn Winter 2016 is here!

Its time to embrace the wooly jumpers and fluffy socks time of year! I have been getting my head in to winter mode and working on a range of jewellery to compliment the chunky knits and wooly hat must have’s of this season. To launch this new season the talented Olivia Bossert and I arranged the Autumn Winter photoshoot at this magical place called “Wild Fal” (I highly recommend looking this place up its pretty epic!) Along with a team of beautiful models: Corinne Jones, Chloe Bromley, Dom Salunke and Sylvia Botet all beautifully glittered up by Natasha Flower Make up we headed off across the fields full of sheep and beautiful horses, down the lanes and in to the world of Wild Fal to toast marshmallows, drink hot chocolate and play with sparklers whilst catching the magical light of the sunset over the water through the golden leaves.

To this team of beauties I’d like to say a massive THANK YOU!!! We are now ready for winter . . . Bring it on! Here are some behind the scenes shots from the...

New to Tegen Jewellery! Gift Vouchers! I don’t know about you but sometimes I get totally stuck on present ideas and so a voucher is always a good plan!  Giving someone a voucher is giving them the choice to buy the thing they really want rather than something they may like, you may not always know someones style or what they already have so a voucher enables them to get something that they have been lusting after and something that they will treasure for ever.

Treasures Of Old

I often source and use old jewellery; recycling and making old stones into something new opens up new ideas for designs, ideas with history behind them and stories to tell. However, sometimes I come across things that are too lovely to take apart, that have an aura of their own that shines as a whole piece. I have put together a collection of ‘Treasures of Old’ that are just too pretty to dismantle, and perfect for adding a touch of history to your treasure chest. Throughout my travels I have sifted through hundreds of pieces and have begun to hand pick the ones that catch my eye, creating a unique little collection that broadens the spectrum of jewellery that I can offer you. I have researched the design of each piece to try and uncover their histories and discover what eras they are from, but all other parts of their stories remain a mystery; only adding to the character of each treasure. This will be an ongoing, ever changing range so if you see something that you like, you ought to snap it up before someone else does! These are all one off finds that come in one size; a treasure you won’t be able to find again. I fell in love with these unique pieces and I really hope you guys do to! These beautiful jewels are the perfect gift for a loved one, especially if you’re planning a romantic proposal (it’s Valentine’s Day soon!), or just as a special treat for yourself. ...

A Little Bit About Tegen Jewellery Who Am I? My name is Tegen and I am the owner / designer / maker at Tegen Jewellery. I am inspired by my love of all things water, growing up in Cornwall it is hard not to be inspired by the sea when you are surrounded by some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world and you spend the majority of your weekends on the sand. This teamed with my obsession with mermaids, magical mythical creatures (unicorns in particular) mixed with a fascination with tribal jewellery, fashion, travel and all things bohemian has been combined and developed in to every day wearable pieces of treasure. I come from a very creative family of engineers graphic designers and book binders which is where I have inherited my love for designing and abilities to create.  Jewellery became my passion from an early age which I then pursued through college and in to university attending a few evening and weekend courses along the way to gain as many skills as I could. I am now proud to say that this passion is now my job and what better job could I ask for . . . I get to play with treasure be creative, meet amazing people and make people smile every day!  Only now I can make everything I dream of!
