Creative director, Boudici London and UJT

DOB 23/12/85 Age 29

As creative director for jewellery manufacturer UJT and its new designer sub-brand Boudici London, Poplanska has responsibility for designing the collections for both, as well as preparing the CAD models and overseeing the production process.

Boudici London was born out of well-established family-run production house UJT and Poplanska has also taken on responsibility for its trade show presentation, integrated video display, point of sale, packaging and PR materials.

A talented jewellery designer in her own right, Poplanska has designed jewellery for the Queen. Poplanska’s Eternal Dove brooch won a British Jewellers’ Association competition to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the monarch was pictured wearing the design on Christmas Day.

In 2013, Poplanska added to her royal client list when she project-managed and oversaw the making of a 90ct diamond necklace for a member of the Saudi Arabian royal family.
