A Day In The Life - Matthew Calvin


Our very own Matthew Calvin is one of London’s most exciting young jewellery designers. Named by the Evening Standard as a go-to name for modern, minimalist designs, Matthew is obsessed with style and precision. We sat down with him to talk custard creams and Colin the cockapoo..

1.    I can’t start the day without..

Coffee and a walk with Colin (the Cockapoo)!

2.    Deadlines are fast approaching – which album gets you to the finish line?

Sam Smith always calms me down but lifts my mood. Although I’m only allowed to play the album once a day in the office..!

3.    And what snack?

I’m very partial to a custard cream.

4.    What’s the best thing about your job?

I love getting to spend every day doing what I love with a great team.

5.    And the worst?

With late nights and early mornings, having your own company doesn’t always come easy but the rewards are worth it.

6.    What are you most proud of? 

It was an amazing achievement for us to get into John Lewis. Seeing my designs in cabinets across the country really was a proud moment. 

7.    Something you want to achieve in the next year?

I would like to see my jewellery in department stores across Europe. Breaking into the US market is also a big goal for me.

8.    And lastly, what are you having for dinner tonight?

This is by far my favourite question – every morning I always ask Georgia and Sophie in the office what they had for dinner! Tonight my fiancé Joe (who is a whiz in the kitchen) is making roast chicken and wild rice salad with a mango, avocado and coriander relish.
