Hello! I'm Raissa and I own Abloro Jewellery.
I am based in the UK, though I'm originally from the Philippines. It's been wonderful living in London, where I run my jewellery business.
I have been making jewellery for about 7 years now, though I stopped making a business out of it 5 years ago when I moved to London. I'm mostly self-taught; I love working with beads and pearl knotting. I've taken a couple of courses recently with the London Jewellery School, and it was a 5 day Silver making class that re-ignited my passion for jewellery.
Apart from making jewellery, I'm an avid runner- my claim to fame being the only female to cross the finish line at my first 100 mile race. I bang on about it all the time! When I'm not thinking about jewellery (which is rare these days), I think about running and where my next adventure could be.
Do drop by and say hello!
