Jewellery with a personal touch

25th October 2016

Jewellery-designer and mum of three, Georgina Lillywhite has made a career from capturing unique family mementos in precious metal clay that when fired, turns to solid silver

Jewellery with a personal touch

In her own words the business was “born from a love of jewellery and a realisation that time passes fast and little ones grow up.”

However, Georgina knows more than most the importance of keeping loved one’s in mind. Her eldest son, Luke was just 17 when he became critically ill with meningococcal septicaemia. Luke spent six months in hospital and lost his lower legs, right hand and the fingers from his left hand. Fortunately he has gone on to live independently, and Georgina continues to be a committed advocate for Meningitis Now.

“Meningitis Now were a great support to us during his illness and his recovery process and I wanted to give something back by donating a percentage of sales to the charity. We have no record of Luke's fingerprint, foot or handprints - only photographs.”

Georgina’s unique jewellery can be ordered online through her website.

Harry Gardner our Corporate Fundraiser said: “We are so grateful to Georgina for her support, and are sure that her personalised jewellery will be incredibly popular. Her idea to incorporate a loved one’s hand, foot or fingerprint into a lasting memento is wonderful.” 

Georgina will be at the Eden Crafts for Christmas Fayre, South of England Showground, Ardingly, West Sussex, RH17 6TL on the 27th - 30th October 2016.
