Florentina, the founder of VelaFlor Jewellery: is originally from Mindanao in the Philippines. She studied Silversmithing in the UK in 2011 and started her company the same year. All metal products are pure 925 Sterling Silver and most of her items use semi-precious stones.

Many of her items are handcrafted completely but she also upcycles other silver and semiprecious jewellery to create her own unique designs. Florentina’s items have been sold in craft fairs in Scotland including the Shetland Islands, England, Wales, and Norway. Her Market has grown considerably and she has a dedicated following.
