Meet Kathryn Bishop
Meet Kathryn Bishop who you may recognize from our 'Women in Jewellery' panel. We took five minutes for an interview #InHerRings with Kathryn...
What was your first job?
In a chemist developing photos, but in jewellery aged 17 as a Saturday girl. It's where I got the bug!
What was your worst job?
Working for a jewellery brand on the King's Road. They were so disorganised and rude that I left after three days.

Favourite pieces from Maya Magal?
The Hallmark designs - I love little details and engraving on jewellery. It tells a story
What do you love about jewellery?
Exactly that – that it tells a story. It's personal, carries a lot of memories and it always fits!
