Meet the team
Hello all, Lets introduce ourselves! We are Luchen and Cara (Mother and daughter) from Bristol UK, We are a team in this adventure and are looking forward to where this takes us! We both work full time for the NHS in admin. Luchen is a mother of 3 girls and is incredibly proud of all her 3 children and grandchildren. Cara is the youngest of the 3 and has been making very simple jewellery since secondary school. We all like to craft and the eldest 2 children also love to paint, make candles, lotion bars and pumpkin carve! We love to craft and have been crafting as a hobby for a number of years. Luchen has City and Guilds part 1& part 2 (advanced) qualification in Embroidery and design.
Our name came from the mixture of loving jewellery making/designing and our gorgeous Pedigree British Blue Shorthair cat- Pirouette Starrturn (Starr). She is no longer with us but was a very special girl who will be in our hearts forever and there will never be cat like her! RIP gorgeous girl!
Cara also used to dance for 15 years with The Keyford Dancing School based in Keynsham, Bristol who are an absolutely incredible school and are going from strength to strength. Many hours of hard work by Cara was put in while at the school for Examinations, Shows, Fun days and much more! The amount of work the teachers and pupils put in for community events is outstanding.Check them out!

These things have made a huge impact on our lives so wanted these things to be a part of our lives forever. This is how Pirouette Jewellery Designs was born!
