Hi! My name is Tristan and I live in Washington in the North East of England and I run this entire operation from my spare room!
As a company, De Winter Artistry is designed to cater to everyone; whatever your body size, wallet size or gender, we have something for you!
During the first lockdown of 2020, I, like many others, decided to treat myself to something shiny! There was a ring from a particular high street store that I absolutely adored, however, when I went to select my ring size on the website, there wasn't an option for me, my size was nowhere to be seen. So, I thought to myself, "ok, I just have fat fingers, what about a bracelet?" Within a few clicks I had found a bracelet, yet that too, did not have my wrist size. Having been thoroughly disappointed by the evenings browsing, I ordered Chinese food and went to bed. Which, in hindsight, didn't help the fat finger problem.
I decided to set up De Winter Artistry a week or two later. My vision for the brand was to create something that was accessible to everyone. You shouldn't have to go without just because of your body or your budget. As someone who is male, I also believe that men should have access to shiny things too! This is why all of my jewellery products have custom sizing, so no matter your finger size, wrist size or neck size, everything here will work for you. The second idea for my brand was to make jewellery that was affordable. I don't think luxury items should cost the earth and I wanted to make sure that there was something for every bank balance.
Something else that was important to me was to be mindful and conscious of the environmental factors that come with running a business. To that end, I have ensured that all of my packaging is environmentally friendly and recyclable.
I hope I have created a place that celebrates individuality and I would love to share that with you all.
MEET THE TEAM
Although I run this operation as a one man band, I do have a lovely pair of executive assistants!
Charlie is chief supervisor and head snoozer, not as easy as it sounds! He's excited about getting his crystal encrusted collar when he gets promoted to manager.
Luna's favourite job is working in the packaging department. She organises, plays in, and contributes to, all the shredded paper. It's a never-ending job but someone has to do it!
