In Retail Jeweller’s first Rising Stars 30 Under 30 supplement we present the amazing young talent that exists in the industry. Here we look at Gee Woods.
Owner and designer, Gee Woods Jewellery
DOB 16/04/86 Age 28
Woods graduated from GIA’s jewellery design course just two years ago and proceeded to set up her own jewellery business.
Although she mainly concentrates on bespoke pieces, specifically updating clients’ family jewellery into modern classics, she has also released a small ready-to-wear collection with a focus on simple, everyday pieces that can be worn with everything.
The collection is all made using either 9ct gold or silver using lesser-known gemstones, so that pieces are affordable. It is all handmade in Britain, supporting local craftsmen.
Over the past six months, the collection has been featured in a lot of national and consumer press, including The Telegraph and The Times. The Telegraph also named Woods as the Jewellery Designer to Watch for 2015.
