HOW WE STARTED

Eclectic Eccentricity grew out of a solo woman's effort to make jewellery for those who were different. Over 10 years later, we still make thoughtful jewellery for those who don't heed the call of the highstreet. It remains at the heart of everything we do: we're for the curious of heart and inquiring of mind. We strive to have our pieces connect with your inner workings, to represent your loves and motivations, your thoughts and your dreams. It's only jewellery of course, but we reckon it has a story to tell.


OUR BELIEFS

We believe our values set us apart. As a small team of dedicated and passionate people, we're made up introverts and extroverts, runners, readers, coffee drinkers and film watchers. Our likes and loves show in the pieces we create and the themes we run with. When you buy from us or zip over an email, you're not dealing with a faceless organisation: your enquiries are dealt with by real people who care very much that you're happy. We want your experience with us to be a joyful one and to that end, we promise to have your order out quickly, for our conversations with you to be prompt, and for your purchase to be delivered in the loveliest of packaging so it brightens even the dreariest of days.

OUR SENSE OF COMMUNITY

Your Eclectic Eccentricity pieces are made here in our Norwich, UK, studio by our skilled team of jewellers. Furthering careers within the local area and fostering a sense of community with other like-minded businesses around us is a core principle of EE Jewellery. Your jewellery is made in house and shipped directly from us, to you.

But our sense of community isn't just local. Here at Eclectic Eccentricity, we're a small company made up entirely of women. Being in the UK, we have the privileged position of having resources readily available to us which enable a female-run business to flourish and thrive. We want all women, all over the world, to have the same opportunities.

With this is mind, we're incredibly proud to be supporting a charity that is so very close to the EE heart: Women for Women International, a charity dedicated to supporting marginalised women in countries affected by war and conflict. We currently sponsor three women through the Women for Women International year long training programmes.

IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT 

A love of wild places and the call of the outdoors means we're passionate about reducing our waste and behaving in a way that is as environmentally responsible as possible.
We're not in the business of fast. Our collections are considered and designed to be timeless. When a line is eventually retired from our catalogue, we sell through until the very last one is sold. It's rare we have surplus stock, but on these occasions, the jewellery is distributed to charities, or the components are reused in new designs. Not a single piece of jewellery ever goes to waste. 
 
We're overjoyed to say that our offices, dispatch office, making studio and in-house making processes are entirely free from single use plastic - not only that, but we are also a zero waste company
We have in-house recycling processes and minimise the use of resources where we can; we're proud to work with Terracycle so any waste that cannot be recycled through traditional waste streams is sent to Terracycle for recycling, or composting should recycling not be possible. Any scrap precious metal is melted down for reuse. Not a single item goes to waste or landfill.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our recycled packaging which is both simple and beautiful: each order is presented in an Eclectic Eccentricity gift box, crafted from fully recycled materials. Our printed materials are made from recycled cards using environmentally friendly inks. Furthermore, all our dispatch and packing materials are made from recycled materials and are biodegradable. 
We believe our impact on our environment should be as minimal as possible.

These core values have helped us create a company we're proud to call our own.

Welcome to the EE Realm. If you think we could have a lot in common, we'd love to see you stay a while.
