WE TALK TO STACEY HODKINSON, FOUNDER OF AQUILA JEWELLERY

Describe Aquila Jewellery in 50 words.

The story of Aquila Jewellery starts with a lifelong passion for jewellery and wanderlust. During my travels a few years ago, I stumbled across a group of silversmiths and their families working together to produce jewellery for a local market. They were using a traditional Indonesian technique called Jawan which I soon grew to adore. The elders of the family seemed to be teaching the younger generation their skills as they worked away in the afternoon sun. It was perfect – lovingly made jewellery, crafted by Indonesian natives, from their humble homes. Not a factory in sight, churning out identical products en masse, nor cheap materials likely to turn fingers green. It was at that point, in a dusty village in Bali, that Aquila Jewellery was born!

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Each collection is inspired by a place that I have visited or lived in, which has led to an emotional connection. Brighton, Sydney, Kerala and Ubud to name a few. I want to celebrate and capture travel, dreams of adventure and special milestones that people can relate to.

Whether it be a token of love this Christmas, a special celebration, a marker of success or recognition of friendship, Aquila Jewellery is unique, just like your life’s journey and is a reminder of your inner boho, wherever you may be!

What can people expect from your pop up this Christmas?

Think mulled wine and crackling fires!

We will be creating a truly cosy shopping experience. Candle lit and clove scented, courtesy of our supporting brand, Floating Feather. From jewellery to candles and cutical oils, our products are unique and perfectly priced for the gifting season. We use only natural packaging and everything is handmade with love.
