Olly M Jewellery was started by Michelle Misra (Olly) in 2003 after a holiday to India started a love affair with beads and semi-precious stones that was to last a lifetime.
Although the business has grown and is on a much larger scale now, Olly still designs every piece herself, here in the UK. She tries to visit India at least once a year, combining sourcing the stones with the chance to go back and see family in Delhi and Jaipur. Specialising in long necklaces and friendship bracelets, the products have featured in magazines such as VOGUE, GQ and Marie Claire and as arm candy for Millie Mackintosh, super-model Sophie Anderton and actress Emilia Fox. Olly adds to the jewellery twice-yearly with colourful earring designs so that there is always something new.
Olly travels extensively to Asia to source every stone, charm or component for the jewellery. She says, ‘Nothing is quite like the feeling you get when you find a new bead or stone. I love the different textures, shapes and varieties that come from a natural product.’
All of the pieces have one thing in common - they are always sent with love.
