Our paw-some partnership with is here! We’ve teamed up with Battersea to design a jewellery collection of cute canines and fancy felines purr-fect for top dogs and cool cats everywhere.
The best bit? £3 from each piece of jewellery you purr-chase will go straight to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home to help support the incredible work they do finding loving homes for animals in their care. Raising money for charity and owning an exclusive piece of jewellery? You’ll be barking mad to miss this!
We caught up with cool cats and to chat about the new collection...
How did the Battersea Dogs & Cats partnership come about?
H: My cat Betty came from Battersea so it's always had a place in my heart - the work they do is amazing.
R: When they got in touch we felt like the cat that got the cream!
Did you design these adorable animals with specific personalities in mind?
H: The personalities came about through the process of drawing them and their characters really came to life as soon as they were sampled.
R: Lots of our friends have cats and dogs which we found inspiring.
You've designed dogs and cats since the very beginning at , why do they inspire you?
H: Cats and dogs are a classic theme since the beginning of costume jewellery and that's something we like to explore.
R: They're just so cute, we'd both love to have a dog but just don't have the time to be good dog owners, therefore jewellery has always been the next best thing!
Are you a cat or a dog person?
H: I had a budgie when I was little and a hamster when I was a teenager so wouldn't define myself as either. However I did have a cat when I left home called Betty, she was a black cat and she always brought me good luck.
R: I grew up with a Gordon Setter called Bella. My family were into dogs and my Granny always had poodles or greyhounds, so they've always been a part of my life.
Favourite design in the collection?
H: I love the Persian Cat, she's so sassy and knows who's boss. The only way you'd get a Persian Cat to sit on your lap would be by wearing one!
R: The Cockapoo. I've wanted a Cockapoo for the last 10 years but have never quite had the right work/home set up to be able to look after one properly - so I'll be wearing the necklace instead.
