Esme - 'to be loved'
Perhaps you have recently become a Mother, an Aunt or a Grandmother. You are part of a generation of women who tell a story and you are part of someone else’s story. You place value in the moments that shape you and the connections that you cherish.
A former teacher who was living and working in India, Sophie Bawa started EsmeLoves during her maternity leave after the arrival of her daughter Esme. She wanted to send something to the women she loved, a gift to mark the arrival of her daughter. Not able to find something she felt was unique she designed a pendent necklace and a baby bangle collaborating the same design, a gift she could send to women she loved as well as gift for her daughter.
'I was far away from people who meant so much to me at such a special time. I felt the need to connect with them more than ever and so I combined my love for gemstones and the relationships I cherish to bring my designs to life'
It was from this moment that Sophie realised how jewellery can cherish the bonds between people. Through the combination of beautifully meaningful gemstones and the Indian inspired designs, each piece is delicately handmade to symbolise the connection between people, families and generations.
EsmeLoves has grown to symbolise the celebration of our relationships, our defining moments, no matter how big or small. Our styles represent the women you know and the timeless appeal of our jewellery makes it a gift that will be worn through the years, handed down with meaning and a constant keepsake of the stories it holds.
