Alice Rivers-Cripps, jewellery designer and mother of two wonderful little boys (Oli and Roo) started up her boutique in 2006 and has since grown from being just her, to a strong team of sixteen including two fabulous jewellers 6 fabulous jewellers. Alice realised what she wanted to do after travelling across North and South America ending up in Mexico with only $60 in her pocket. She had no way of paying for her flight home so she worked for some local Mayan jewellers who taught her how to make traditional silver jewellery. Two years later when she had made and sold enough to pay for a flight home to England, Alice chose to continue to use the skills she was taught to develop her own personal style and Posh Totty Designs was born.
Alice decided early on that she wanted to make meaningful keepsakes/jewellery that the wearer will cherish and love rather than fashion jewellery that is 'in fashion' one moment and out the next. She was one of the first jewellers to realise there was a market for Personalised jewellery.
Alice says "People really wanted something unique and British and there were lots of shops on the High Street trying to copy the handmade look but they were mostly importing it from China, whereas we were making it all in our workshops. Due to the fact we were hand making each piece anyway, it wasn't much more work to then personalise to the individual. After having children myself I then realised how special it was, as I wanted to wear my children's names on my wrist or around my neck as I was so proud of them."
