Tell us a bit about Honey Willow...

Named after our daughters Honey and Willow, we make meaningful jewellery that celebrates loved ones and life’s milestones. We have sold online for nearly thirteen years, and our website holds our full range of jewellery, much of which is made to order. We now have a shop on Pulteney Bridge, with a workshop opposite, where the team make our customer’s jewellery.

Why Bath?

We fell in love with Bath fifteen years ago. It’s a beautiful city, surrounded by countryside, with friendly, down-to-earth, creative people who love living here. I grew up in London where a lot of people are just moving through. In Bath, everyone is happy to be here.

Share something new and exciting that you have discovered in Bath…

The Lido has reopened at Cleveland Pools – a huge project which has been lovingly brought back to life by a dedicated team of local volunteers.

What do you do to spoil yourself?

I love going out for lunch or dinner with my husband or with friends. A favourite place for lunch is the Wheelwright Arms in Monkton Combe, and Walcot House is always a treat for either lunch, dinner or cocktails.

Your top indie recommendation in Bath?

Botanica Studios is the perfect destination for anyone with a house-plant obsession!

What are you most looking forward to in the city over the next few months?

Christmas in Bath is wonderful. The Christmas market brings extra visitors, and the Bath independents put in a huge effort for both visitors and residents. We are excited about our second Christmas as a bricks and mortar shop on Pulteney Bridge, and we can’t wait to get into the festive spirit with our customers.
