Sophie Martin-Glinel

Essemgé is an exciting young jewellery brand set up by Sophie, the designer-maker, that offers innovative versatile mixed-media jewellery.

Essemgé stands for "SMG", Sophie’s initials with a French twist in reference to her origins.

“Keen drawer and watercolour painter, I have always been interested in anything artistic and creative that is both fulfilling yet challenges the senses. Designing and making beautifully finished interesting jewellery for me represents that journey of taking an idea and turning it into an actual wearable piece. And what better compliment than seeing my designs being worn, loved and cared for. That is what it is all about.

Heavily influenced by London’s urban environment, the style is bold and edgy with a fresh take on traditional shapes. By repurposing industrial materials such as aluminium and silicone rubber and mixing them with precious metal, Sophie creates eye-catching covetable pieces.

Playing on colours, textures and volumes yet keeping lines simple makes Essemgé jewellery highly attractive to both women and men who choose style over fashion.

Trend-setting yet elegant, soft and lightweight yet powerful, tactile, Essemgé jewellery has been designed to make you feel at your best, confident, radiant, upbeat, and ready to take on the world.

“I am passionate about offering high quality distinctive pieces of jewellery that will inspire you to express your creativity and feel empowered. The collection “Create Your Style”, in particular, gives you the freedom to play and make your very own pieces by experimenting to fit your taste/mood/occasion and build your signature look.”

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 1 day we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
