About Kirsten

Step into summer with Kirsten’s fantastic range of quirky handmade silver jewellery. Her designs are inspired by her beloved garden and the hidden wonders found within the rolling meadows which surround her Surrey based workshop.

It is not the obvious beauty of the ice white rose or the candy pink water lilies which create the foundations of Kirsten’s designs, it is the inconspicuous natural forms which capture Kirsten’s imagination--the elegant dandelion seeds carried through the evening breeze, the magnificent Elodea pond weed leaves nestled beneath the water surface and the ants busily climbing up and down the apple trees which act as design catalysts and have lead to the development of Kirsten’s award winning contemporary jewellery collections.

Kirsten Hendrich Jewellery was established in June 2011 by Surrey based and born Jeweller Kirsten Hendrich. In the same year Kirsten graduated from UCA with a first class BA Hons degree in Jewellery and Metalwork and was commended both in the highly acclaimed Goldsmiths Craftsmanship and Design awards for Fashion Production and for Pewter Live.

With a strong background within the jewellery industry having completed over ten work placements with top jewellers including Donna Collinson, Hannah Bedford, Beth Gilmour, and Elizabeth Bone, Kirsten decided to launch her unique collections of handmade silver jewellery with a strong emphasis on craftsmanship and quality.
