Jenny House the founder of Origin 31, learn about our history and ethos

Origin 31 Ethical Fine Jewellery

Origin 31 was founded by Jenny House, who started from the idea that jewellery and personalisation should be creative, conceptual, imaginative and expressive.  Origin 31 designs colourful jewels from concept to a beautiful reality all handmade in the UK. Colourful jewels should have no restriction, it’s an extension of your personality, so should become a treasured part of you.

The Origin 31 collection is our way to illustrate that wearable ethical fine jewellery can still be vibrant and individualised by offering customisable options within our main ethical fine jewellery collection.  For the ultimate way to personalise, we collaborate with our customers through a bespoke jewellery service and begin a jewellery journey together to create a story with your heirloom jewellery, handmade in the UK from start to finish.

Jenny, herself a trained goldsmith with a diamond diploma has over 20 years of experience in the jewellery trade. She honed her skills working at various fine jewellery and fashion houses within production, design and development that enabled her to turn any concept into reality using any media. Mother Nature is a constant source of inspiration, and she takes great delight in using the most captivating of ethical gemstones and metals. She applies constant and considered attention to detail, which results in crafting ethical fine jewellery of the utmost quality as ready to wear colourful jewels or bespoke jewellery.

Inspiration can come from anyone, anything and anywhere which is why she feels our colourful jewels can be created for anyone, with any material; there are no constraints, only freedom to express individuality. Through a passion for collaboration we aim to provide our clientele with guidance on the creative journey be it customisation or bespoke jewellery, so they can be fully immersed into their story and the process, which results in a personalised, wearable work of art handmade in the UK. At Origin 31 we take pride and pleasure in creating precious colourful jewels that are truly sentimental and become modern family heirlooms and part of your history.
