Paige – Founder, Designer, Screen¬† Printer & Boring Admin Gal (Gotta love an organised Virgo boss lady)
Mysticum Luna started as a hobby, I knew nothing about business and had no end goal in site. I was studying Music Journalism and started making a variety of charm necklaces in my spare time (obviously I did sweet FA with my degree). Who knew we’d be here now, doing what we love every day. I’ve always been a jewellery hoarder, even back at my first job as a Christmas Temp at Miss Selfridge, my staff discount was always splashed on tacky plastic jewellery. Watching our own designs come to life is such a bloody lovely feeling, and with that I can safely say at the ripe old age of 25: I never plan on changing career path again. Sure, people doubted me, and will probably continue to, but god damn it I love my job! From the bottom of my heart – Thank You!
Goals: Closing the shop was a hard decision, but moving into our office was the easiest. I’m so happy with our choice to move entirely online and so no new shop is planned for us. Instead, my main goal is to keep bringing you high quality, unique gothic jewellery designs.
A fun fact about me and Paige; we used to hate each other as teenagers. I know! Silly girl squabbles over a boy. But we both went our separate ways and as we got older the feud was long forgotten. Our paths crossed again in our early 20’s when I did some free-lance modelling work. I turned up to the shoot ready to pose my ass off when I saw her sat across the room. I had some minor flashbacks to our teenage years and I was pretty apprehensive, but we instantly clicked. She was at the shoot to dress the models in some of her jewellery, this was my first introduction to her little (at the time!) company, Mysticum Luna. I purchased my first ring from her at that little shoot in Nottingham. After that I visited her flagship store in Rotherham and instantly fell in love, I started to model for ML as well as collaborating on a few projects, this over time grew naturally into a partnership, I quit my boring day job and I haven’t looked back since!
Goals: My main goal is to progress with my carving skills and continue to grow our company bigger than ever!
