About

Hi, my name is Marie-Claire and I’m the founder of Vellva. 

Vellva founder Marie-Claire Sheedy

Forever fascinated by my Italian Grandma Celia’s jewellery collection, Vellva was born in 2018 when I set up a website from my bedroom to sell hand-picked vintage jewellery inspired by the pieces I’d grown up loving. 

I was drawn to a combination of classic, timeless jewellery box staples and kitsch statement styles, with Italy - its culture, religion, architecture, colours, and design, as my constant source of inspiration.

From this starting point I began designing and hand-making my own jewellery to combine this aesthetic with high-quality materials, and to have full control of the process from initial idea to finished piece. 

 My mission is to design and create beautiful quality, long-lasting pieces of jewellery in unique designs that playfully reimagine classic vintage jewellery.
