High Maintenance Jewellery was created in 2009, by a lady who dared to dream and wanted to share with the world her unique creations for everyone to enjoy.....this lady was Kate Hunter!

After falling in love with beads, charms, pendants, ribbons.....anything that could be designed and crafted into a stunning piece for women and/or men to wear, High Maintenance Jewellery felt that we should open our online store for people to share our love and inimitable pieces too! From a young age, Kate would save her pocket money to purchase beads, findings, and materials to design and create jewellery pieces with her older sister, and then daydream of seeing people wearing her creations. Always being a girly girl, Kate loved to be wearing her gorgeous jewels that made her feel beautiful, unique, and passionate. Here at High Maintenance Jewellery, we hope that you enjoy our passion too!

HMJ pride ourselves on our customer service, quality, and pleasant nature – holding many High Maintenance Jewellery events, jewellery parties, charity donations, stalls, competitions, providing our handmade jewellery to stockists and suppliers, and also jewellery workshops. In 2016, Kate was approached to design and create a pendant to support the forget-me-not charity at the NHS Hull and East Yorkshire Women's and Children's hospital at the EPAU and Cedar Ward. Kate donates hundreds of pendants each month for the hospitals memory boxes. Each person who suffers the loss of an unborn child will receive a memory box. This is something Kate is extremely honoured to do. All of our jewellery is personally designed and hand-made, and so each piece is a unique creation. High Maintenance Jewellery is a company that understands the needs of individuality and so we do have one-to-one consultations with clients if they desire a bespoke piece of jewellery for a special occasion, or to match a specific outfit, or for a gift. Diversity is a strong element of Kate's work, which makes her bespoke jewellery pieces highly sought after. Injecting a unique and full flavour into each piece, Kate and HMJ take you on a colourful journey and sustain you as a strong part of the creativity along the way.
