Designer Chupi at Coldlilies
Chupi Sweetman-Pell makes jewellery for your inner magpie - gorgeous delicate pieces in sparkly semi-precious gems and 14ct gold vermeil.
In her new collection for AW13, Chupi builds on last season's wildly popular gold, while introducing some fabulous new gemstones, using 18ct gold plating and a method called lost wax casting that has been around since ancient Egypt.
Scouted by Topshop at the tender age of 21, Chupi has built her reputation through a contemporary clothing line which sold like crazy to fashionistas. In 2011 Chupi's fiancé encouraged her to get a hobby, little did he know it would become her next fashion adventure. As a true designer she says “I couldn't help but start making the jewellery I loved and wanted to wear, but couldn't find”. A friend asked for a piece, a stylist loved a pair of earrings and The Irish Times featured a gold braid ring and suddenly another fashion baby was born.
All of Chupi's pieces are made in Ireland, proudly carrying slogan “Made in Ireland, Loved Everywhere”.
