mihaela christou - bespoke jewellery is designed to be stylish and easy to wear, combining practicality and fashion.
All pictures on this site are sample pieces available from my collections and with every order a brand new piece is custom made. Small but unique variations are expected due to natural materials and the hand making process, making your piece truly one off.
Combining crystals and gemstones with quality base materials you can always discover something fabulous that is handmade just for you.
I was born in the beautiful town of Zagreb, Croatia.
My love of jewellery started from a young age.
It fascinated me how a simple piece of jewellery can change your look and have an effect on how you feel when wearing it.
I wanted to design pieces that are stylish, functional and easy to wear (simple designs that go with everything and can be worn for any occasion).
In August 2004 I moved to London, UK, where I started my Media studies.
I got a part time position as salesperson in a small jewellery store in North London.
Soon after, I started making some jewellery repairs for the shop and got a chance to put few of my pieces in the store, which proved popular and sold fast.
I made pieces as long as I can remember but that boost of confidence was all I needed. I knew then that I wanted to make my love towards design and jewellery a full time reality and I was ready for it!
In the next few years I got a great exposure online and also in magazines such as; Cosmopolitan, Glamour, House Of Coco, Vogue UK...
I met some wonderful and inspirational people on the way and I am very grateful that I can do what I truly love and enjoy, designing and hand making special pieces for my lovely customers.
Hope my pieces bring you as much joy as and excitement as they give me making them.
