"A luscious blue enamelled dragonfly pendant was the first piece of jewellery I ever bought, and I’ve been fascinated by them ever since"
"Dragonfly myth and legend abounds in every continent – a symbol of light and joy, self realisation and change. So when looking for a logo to encapsulate the spirit of Anderson & Webb, I chose the dragonfly."
Lucy Tallyn, GIA established the brand Anderson and Webb in 1998, with the aim of offering women beautiful jewellery they won’t find on the high street; rich in colour with genuine stones, often for less than they pay for a high end costume piece.
Lucy, carefully chooses all the jewellery and has a passion for pearls, in all shapes and colours " Tears of the gods, or just fancy baubles, freshwater cultured pearls offer great value for money and look stunning on women of all ages. Now available in so many vibrant shades, I love mixing them with semi precious gems in different lengths and styles to create fabulous colour mixes that lift even the plainest of outfits."
As well as personally selecting every piece in the range, Lucy is also responsible for designing her own pieces, including the best selling robin brooch, cat charm bracelets, and many of the pearl ropes and colours. Each piece is thoughtfully created to embrace the values of Anderson Webb - using genuine stones and precious metals to create elegant pieces that can be enjoyed for years to come.
As well as offering beautiful jewellery, fabulously packaged, Anderson & Webb is built on the fundamental pillar of old-fashioned good service. We appreciate every customer who chooses to shop with us. A jewellery purchase should be a source of pleasure, a confidence booster and a joy to wear, probably repeatedly at first, then maybe forgotten and resurrected in future years to give pleasure again. We aim to spoil our customers, whether that's a lady treating herself or her partner who is buying a gift.
Lucy lives at home in Buckinghamshire with her husband Graham, dog Chester and Kitty the cat - who has inspired much of our glamour puss range! She fundraises regularly for Macmillan Cancer Support and has recently completed the gruelling Hardwick X-Stream 10k run - please go to her Just Giving Page www.justgiving.com/lucytallyn if you would like to donate.
She is also owner of, Stitchkits, a successful craft business: www.stitchkits.co.uk
