About us

Handmade British jewellery.

Everyday beautiful jewellery and statement pieces.

We are Alex and Laura, sisters, original fen girls and founders of Olive&Wallis.

Many months ago, when life was normal we talked of a venture, an enterprise, a dream to create a business. And then, when things were anything but normal we made a leap of faith.

We design and make jewellery that we hope you’ll love, for you or for someone you love.

Lots of our inspiration comes from pieces that have been handed down through our family. Keepsakes, family heirlooms and modern antiques. We are a sentimental pair when it comes to certain items of jewellery that we wear, because they were mum’s or her mum’s. For us, what they mean and where they’re from makes us want to wear them more. They are everyday pieces of jewellery that look good and are special.

You may notice that we love coins. Dad bought Mum a penny farthing ring back in 1963 and both of us wear it. It’s easy to see why we love coins so much. They are a piece of the past, they can be very sentimental and they look awesome.

Then there are the chains.  Single, stacked, cable link, belcher, curb, satellite, paperclip, box, the variety is endless and if you find one you love, it will become your jewellery staple, whether you love it on its own, or layered with other chains and pendants.

Finally, you may notice all our pieces have names.  This part seemed like a natural progression for us, to name the jewellery we love making after some of the special women in our lives.  First and foremost it's a nod to all the amazing women out there and what they achieve everyday.  It's all about sisterhood!

We are so excited to be starting out together, it is such a young business but we hope we can build a foundation that will see our small business produce affordable heirloom pieces.

That’s what we hope.
