The Wished For brand is all about luxury hand crafted gemstone jewellery with an emphasis on colour, shape and texture. Wished For founder and designer Rachel Dawes hand makes every piece from her studio situated in the beautiful Norfolk countryside. She personally selects every stone and uses traditional techniques of wire wrapping, metal work, beading and hand knotting.
The finest semi precious gemstones are sourced from a handful of trusted suppliers across the globe and combined with solid sterling silver and 14ct gold fill to create long lasting jewellery that loves to be worn and above all is beautifully different.
Being a vegan, Rachel is passionately opposed to animal exploitation and her designs will never feature any animal derived components such as pearls, silk, shell and leather.
From the designer..
"It is important to me to retain the handmade aesthetic in my designs. Every little wire wrapped gem and every piece of hand forged and hammered metal come together to create a truly individual and unique piece of jewellery. The natural gemstones may have inclusions which only enhance their beauty, character and individuality. Working with these wonderful earth bourne gems allows me to infuse my jewellery with energy and colour and my wish is that when women wear my designs they feel uplifted and vibrant with a sense of free spirited confidence".
A small corner of my studio space, this is used to keep all the tools close to hand.
