Press release: Reclaiming "unique"

How often do you hear something described as "unique" only to see someone else wearing the same piece?

Jewellery designer Kat Dibbits guarantees that won't happen with her collection - each piece is irreplaceable.

Kat explains: "Because I use vintage components such as earrings or brooches, it would be impossible for me to repeat a design even if someone asked me to."

Kat starts her work at the point others see at the end - with the mismatched earrings abandoned in the back of a drawer, or the brooch with the broken pin that's chucked out as junk.

She lovingly restores and repairs each piece before transforming them into necklaces, bracelets and earrings that are perfect for both occasion wear and every day.

"Many of the pieces I salvage are by named designers such as Coro or Sarah Coventry, and it's a shame for them to end their lives unloved," says Kat.

She adds that because each piece is genuinely one of a kind they make the ideal gift.

"If you're giving a present, you want to make sure it's as special as the person you're giving it to," she says. "What better way to do that than by giving something you ate guaranteed no one else can buy. For most people who can't afford to go to a top end bespoke jeweller that's a pipe dream - I don't see why it should be."
