Getting To Know 2 Quirky Birds aka R&R
R&R’s jewellery designs are unique and absolutely stand out from the crowd, their collection could not be more fun and varied. Their clever designs are inspired by the local area of Folkestone, and the people around them, where they’ve had a shop for over 18 months now.
The mother & daughter duo “both fell in love with Folkestone more than we expected to so we both moved here to live last week!”. Welcome to the town! Since working in Folkestone the pair have enjoyed being a part of the local community where they’ve met some wonderful people and businesses, some of whom are also merchants on this site!
After training as an architectural model maker, which is where Hannah learnt how to use the equipment and machinery, she wanted to do something more created and joined forces with her Mum as a hobby 7 years ago visiting local craft fairs. As their popularity grew and they got busier, Hannah made the jump to going full time almost 3 years ago and hasn’t looked back since!
One of our favourite pieces of theirs on Made in Folkestone is the “Naughty Chip Thief” necklace. We can all relate to having this happen to us when we’re sitting on the leas looking over towards France.
