Ava & Bea are Elaine and Stephen, two creative people who tinkered with various projects for years, before deciding to focus on those ideas and turn an interest into a small business. With Elaine having a degree in Fine Art, and Stephen a degree in design, the pair shared a love of beautiful pattern and design, and brought these shared interests to the products. They enjoy combining new and old materials, and take inspiration from both vintage and contemporary design.
Ava & Bea are based in Bristol, where they have a studio close to the home they share with their two daughters. Since they started the business in 2012, they've aimed to bring something a little bit different to their customers. Using a mix of materials, such as wood, vintage wallpaper, Formica, acrylic mirror, copper & enamel, they make jewellery and home accessories.
