About Junk Jewels
We design fun, playful jewellery that isn’t limited to a ‘type’ of woman, style or budget — being accessible to all is key.
We encourage our customers to have fun with how they approach wearing their jewels to reflect their own individual style, each layer representing a memory, occasion or story to tell.
Stack ‘em high, layer them up or wear ‘em solo
Our colourful collections are designed with longevity in mind, bridging the gap between fine and costume jewellery — lovingly designed with the wearer in mind.
They’re equally gratifying as gifts, so we ensure all our jewels come in cute, letterbox-sized packages, ready to send to loved ones.
Junk Jewels has been worn by some stylish sisters along the way, from Fearne Cotton to Taylor Swift, and we’ve been featured in the likes of Cosmopolitan, Vogue.com, The Guardian’s Weekend magazine and The Times.
Founded in 2005 by Zoe Lindsley whilst studying fashion as an undergrad, the love of collecting vintage jewellery and found items went from experimenting with repurposing ‘junk’ to developing a brand identity.
From initially catching the eye of her fellow students, before long she had a popular stall at London’s Portobello Road Market where a loyal following emerged. In 2007, she decided it was time to take the business online.
While the brand has grown since then, its core identity remains the same: effortless everyday jewellery.
Zoe now works with a manufacturer to produce her collections, and she’s hired her sister, Mollie, who you’ll see across all our social media and on hand to help with designs.
These are sisters in business, behind the scenes of Junk Jewels and doing it their way.
