Handcrafted, ethically made pieces inspired by nature are at the heart of Cathy Pope Jewellery’s latest collection, StoneStruck. Featuring natural and dyed stones including moss agate, rhodonite, chrysophase and malachite, the range reflects designer Pope’s love for nature and the power of the earth’s creations. With strikingly bright, pigment-dyed agate earrings and necklaces and picturesque cabochon pendants, Pope says her vision is always to make timeless keepsake pieces for women to wear for years.

“The women who wear my jewellery play a major role in how the ranges have evolved over the years. Seeing how women wear and live in the pieces I’ve created is truly inspirational to me,” she says.

StoneStruck came about from a recent trip to India, which she visits regularly to work alongside her small team of ethical craftsmen who handmake her bespoke, luxury pieces. “I strive to be at the forefront of everything that we do, whether that’s sourcing materials from trusted suppliers or connecting with customers on a personal level,” she says. StoneStruck is Cathy Pope’s eighth collection and is available online and from selected stockists now.
