v i v + bo was created by founder Emma Roberts, a jewellery designer who trained in New York and returned to the UK to set up her own jewellery studio. After being featured in Vogue and Tatler her work was picked up by Artistrar Jewels who showcased some of her work in Milan Fashion week - the highlight of her career. After her children Vyvyan and Bodhi were born she founded V I V + B O - a place to showcase her own jewellery and somewhere she could inspire creativity in children, through metal smithing workshops and more recently, the much loved jewellery making box, which allows children to design and make their own jewellery from home, with step by step guides and a bespoke selection of jewels, findings and tools. The importance of inspiring creativity in children has been the forefront of her recent work and she continues to refine and develop it.
The gifts page also showcases her passion for eclectic workmanship from around the world, from the workshops of the Marrakesh Medina to the incredible work from Nai Disha, which supports mothers and their children in the New Delhi slums.
