We’re on Instagram!


We have joined the highly addictive world of instagram! Are you on there? Follow us @paperandchain. And if you don’t have the app, you can still see our photos here.

These are our new Catena bracelet colours by the way- four new summery shades! Which is your favourite? I’m leaning towards baby blue, or maybe lilac. Oh they’re all pretty! They will be in the shop really soon.



Happy New Year

We got off to a wonderful start with our little venture, in fact our ‘little’ venture has far exceeded our expectations! We started out at the beginning on November, and it’s been a truly amazing couple of months for us since we launched.


We were featured on Elle.com, twice! Our Vega and Arrow rings were worn to work by the very stylish girls who work at Elle..


..And our shop was featured in their ‘In Store This Week‘ section. Thanks Elle!


Erin of Calivintage wore our Vega rings, and we thought they looked lovely on her!

We’ve also been lucky enough to have a few blog posts written about us, including:

Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to write about us! We really appreciate all of the support we’ve had since we started up, it’s much more than we could have hoped for and we couldn’t be happier.

All the best for the new year, let’s make it a good one!



We are absolutely thrilled to have been included in Elle’s ‘Best Buys Of The Week’. We’re so excited to see our name alongside Alexander Wang, Zara, Topshop, Carmen Woods & Cos!

Here’s what they had to say about us:

“We’ve just discovered this understated and oh-so-cool independent jewellery label and quite simply want everything.”

Thank you so much ELLE! We love you too. You can see the feature here.



We wanted to say thank you so much for all of your support since we opened our shop! We’ve been very busy making and packaging your orders. If you’ve received an order from us already and you’d like us to know what you think about it, you can drop us a little line on our facebook page. Or even better, you could take a photo of yourself in the jewellery and post that on our page! We would love that.

In the mean time we really wanted to share with you all of the photos that we took when we did our photoshoot for the collections. Our lovely friends Nicki and Hazel were kind enough to model for us (we may have bribed them with jewellery and cake) and we had a great time taking them so felt we should let you have a proper look!


Hello! So, our shop is officially open! We’re so excited to share everything with you.

We decided to set up this blog to share any Paper & Chain news with you, pretty photos, inspiration posts and all sorts of who knows what. If you don’t know, we are Ismay and Naomi, and we’ve been best friends for twenty years, and now we’re starting this jewellery company together. There’s more info on our ‘About Us’ page if you’d like to know more.

To start us off we’d like to share some photos from the process of making our first collections:


We’ve been working together on this for about a year, and dreaming about it for much longer. We really hope you enjoy looking around our site.
