Ridley and Dowse Designer Feature:
About Ridley and Dowse:
Ridley & Dowse is a partnership between jeweller Vivienne Ridley and fashion designer and illustrator Susannah Dowse. Together they have a design heritage that includes Harrods, Ted Baker, Boxfresh, Warehouse, Topman, Duophonic records and Hemingway designs.They met whilst working together on the recycled clothing range ReMade for textile charity Traid. They launched the partnership Ridley & Dowse in September 2008.
Our inspiration is found in good books, British heraldry, pop art, your granny's jewellery box and the great outdoors.
We are designers committed to producing beautiful things at as little cost to human rights and the environment as possible. We believe that the beauty in an object comes in part from how it's made and by whom.
Our best seller is our Grace necklace. It combines perfectly our bold design style with our love of nature. All our pieces featuring birds are very popular, which is lucky as we love designing them.
We Make Summer Fair:
We will be showing our brand new textile range featuring our signature bird and cloud print design before it makes it in to the shops. Also new ranges in bookmarks, cake decorations, drinks coasters, christmas decorations, and greetings cards alongside our full jewellery range,
