Muse Studio Jewellery has opened its first bricks and mortar shop and studio on George Street in Altrincham town centre.
Located next door to Jake Shoes, the independent jewellers sells a curated collection of handcrafted, sustainable jewellery.
It also houses an onsite jewellery workshop where customers can see the pieces being crafted live by the studio team.
Originally created by local retired nurse Lynne Taylor, the Manchester-based family-owned business has built up a large following online.
The business is now led by Lynn’s granddaughter Georgia with all the jewellery designed and handcrafted in its UK studio, with a focus on recycled silver and gold.
The team recycles all its own material and precious metal waste, with all packaging fully recyclable too.
James Tootle, Head of Retail at Bruntwood Works which co-owns the Stamford Quarter with Trafford Council, said: “It’s great to see a local, independent business like Muse Studio Jewellery choosing to bring their product to the high street and take the leap from online to bricks and mortar.
“The onsite studio and workshop will mean that customers can do more than just buy jewellery – they can watch the pieces being made and experience first hand the craftsmanship that goes into each piece.”
Georgia Taylor, from Muse Jewellery Studios, added: “The destination has an incredible community spirit and is right in the heart of an amazing town. I can’t wait to bring an exciting retail experience to the high street.”
