The Community Foundation in Wales has been fortunate to partner with two well-loved Welsh brands.
Emma-Kate Francis Jewellery
Emma-Kate Francis is a Cardiff-based bespoke jewellery designer. Emma-Kate has previously designed pieces for the Victoria & Albert Museum and renowned international jewellers, Jersey Pearl. Each piece of jewellery is handcrafted in her boutique studio in the heart of Cardiff's Arcade Quarter.
Emma-Kate has collaborated with the Community Foundation in Wales to launch a new jewellery collection
. The collection is called 'Daffodil', inspired by the logo of the Foundation, with each piece handmade from sterling silver, gold plated and complete with a pearl centre.
