‘Irregular Studs’ are handmade earrings by local jeweller Botanical Boheme.
Botanical Boheme is a unique and sustainable, jewellery brand. Fiercely independent, it is maker-led and run by Stevie-Leigh Ayres. A creative jewellery designer and maker based in Plymouth.
First, her story begins with a Plymouth College of Art degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing, which she obtained in 2016. And also, motherhood, which came immediately after.
At that point, Stevie’s work took a completely different aesthetic as she navigated her new responsibilities. Eventually developing into her current style, botanical, inspired by plantlife and using natural materials.
Foremost, her chosen approach is ethical and ecological. She cares about the environment, so she uses recycled metals and fern leaves for each pressed image. Ultimately creating her signature botanical imprinted jewellery. A technique which also results in completely unique outcomes, making each piece a one of a kind. Her pieces are a mixture of every day casual wear and statement. One can easily find a design to suit everyone. All in two tones: brass and silver.
Sustainable and ethical jewellery
Above all, sustainability is important in every step of the way at Botanical Boheme. Not just in the use of recycled metals, but also in packaging and promotional materials. Specifically using fair trade cotton jewellery pouches and recycled business cards to complete the brand. In brief, Stevie strives to create a business that takes the planet into consideration.
