About Caregos Couture Jewellery



Caregos Cyf.
was established in Wales in 2004. Our work has been exhibited at several art galleries in Wales, including the La Mostra Art Gallery, Cardiff Bay (two separate exhibitions), Kooywood Art Gallery, Cardiff (three separate exhibitions) and the Model House, Llantrisant (which hosted exhibitions of our work for over four years, until their closure in December 2009). Previous collections have also been shown in jewellers Kingswood Jewellery (Cowbridge & Llantwit Major) and TS2 Jewellery Studio, Cardiff together with a host of bridal boutiques including Jayne Hampson, Penarth and Little White Dress, Cardiff.

We have also sold previous collections in boutiques including Izimanga, St. Brides Major and Chiesa, Cardiff (the fashion boutique owned by Maria Church, mum of Charlotte), which hosted our Autumn/Winter launch party 2007. We've since designed pieces for a range of celebrities, including Siân Lloyd and Charlotte & Maria Church.

Caregos Couture jewellery could be seen on permanent exhibition at The Model House, Llantrisant (Arts Council of Wales), until its closure in December 2009 - a result of funding cuts. The Model House exhibited art/craft work from world-wide designers recognised in their particular fields, whether it be textiles, glass, wood-work or jewellery design. Our exhibition there was in its fifth year. Pieces have also been sold at RMA Jewellers, Porthcawl.

Caregos Couture jewellery is currently available exclusively through our on-line store. Each piece shown here is unique and is both designed and handmade in Llantrisant, south Wales. Our designs are bold and distinctive, which we feel reflects our client base - sexy, sophisticated and confident in their sense of style, not wishing to follow preconceived notions of what is fashionable.

Enjoy our website. Please let us know what you think, we welcome your feedback.
