Bloom Jewellery began in April 2016 in Birmingham's famous Jewellery Quarter. Founded by Kate Dugmore, Bloom started out of a passion for Jesus and Jewellery.
Hi I'm Kate a jewellery designer from Birmingham. I graduated from the School of Jewellery BCU in 2000 and have enjoyed a successful career in mass production manufacturing for the last 16 years. Designing for the high street has given me experience of commercial design and this has been the foundation for my vision for Bloom Jewellery. I have often pondered on the lack of British design in the Christian jewellery market. We hope to be an affordable handmade company that spreads the gospel through original design in Christian bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.
I'm a wife to Rob, also a Jeweller and we have 4 boys that we Home Educate. I love the flexibility of working for myself and the freedom it brings to Motherhood.
More recently I have enjoyed being an Artist in Resisdence at the School of Jewellery BCU, during this time I have developed my CAD design skills and this has allowed me to design in 3D, working with 3D printed technology and Laser technology. Our new collections reflect this including our Wedding bands and our 'As for me and my house' collection. All our designs are cast in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham and hand finished in my workshop.
I hope you enjoy our store, Kate x
