About Us 2.0
Playful jewellery with purpose
A big supporter of women inspiring women, Junk Jewels creates playful jewellery with a positive message and designed for everyday wear.
Each piece, intended to be gifted with love and sentiment, is thoughtfully made with the wearer in mind.
Standalone pieces or stack ‘em high
Each item can be worn alone for a minimal look or layered up to reflect an individual style - each layer representing a different memory, occasion or story to tell.
Produced using quality gold and silver plating, accessibility is key. Junk Jewels isn’t limited to a ‘type’ of woman, style or budget.
We're about bridging the gap between fine and costume jewellery, creating designs for every occasion.
The Junk Jewels way
Junk Jewels is not a fast-fashion label. We don’t create new collections every season. Instead, these are small collections made up of pieces with longevity.

So, where did it all begin?
Junk Jewels is the creation of Zoe Lindsley and born out of a passion for collecting vintage jewellery and beautiful objects with a story behind them.
As a fashion student, Zoe often made jewellery and accessories to help style her outfits. In 2005, she decided to start selling her designs.
Starting out with a stall at London’s world-famous Portobello Road market — a breeding ground for creative start-ups — each item was hand-made by Zoe, often using intricate found items deemed ‘junk’, turning them into wearable jewels, Junk Jewels. Nowadays, Zoe designs each item and works alongside a manufacturer to produce each collection.
Over the years, the brand has been featured in Cosmopolitan, LOOK, Vogue.com, The Guardian’s Weekend magazine, The Times and worn by celebrities including Fearne Cotton, Taylor Swift and Pixie Lott.
