Duxford Studios is an independent Welsh contemporary jewellery brand, hand-crafting fine jewels inspired by life, death and the journey along the way. Award winning founder, Esme Rogers Evans, celebrates Memento Mori, the Latin theory and practice of our reflection on mortality. Her pieces are instilled with an anthropological sense of human history and our inherent awareness of our time on the earth. Each jewel is a reminder of the transient nature of life and the importance of living each day to its fullest.

Esme is committed to sourcing ethical materials, working with recycled gold and silver wherever possible and hand selected gemstones from trusted and reputable suppliers. Each piece is expertly designed, crafted by hand and individually finished ensuring the highest quality. The nature of the hand made processes means that every piece is slightly different, making them one of a kind and personal to the wearer. Her contemporary heirlooms demand attention, withstand the test of time and are a necessary antidote to a world of mass production and fast fashion.

Q I have an idea for a piece of jewellery but I can't see it on your website. What should I do?

Just get in touch.

My favourite part of Duxford Studios is making custom orders. This personal exchange of ideas result in fresh heirlooms to be cherished for generations. We live in a one-size-fits-all world of mass production and fast fashion and I aim to be the antidote.

No matter if you want to slightly change a piece in my shop so it perfectly suits you, or you have a totally new idea - I'll work to create your "perfect piece"!

Q Which metals are used in your jewellery?

The majority of my jewellery is made from eco sterling silver. This is ethically sourced silver, often reclaimed and recycled from unwanted jewellery and other industries. I also offer gold vermeil which is 18 carat gold plating.

Solid gold items can also be made on request.

Q I can't find rings or bangles that fit comfortably because my hands are bigger/smaller than average. Can you help?

Yes! Get in touch and I'll be happy to make a piece which fits you perfectly.

Q Can I visit your studio?

Yes. Appointments can be arranged at my home studio by contacting me on social media or via email.
