Hayley Kruger is a South African raised, UK based designer. After completing a degree in Silversmithing, Jewellery and Allied Crafts, Hayley went on to design costume jewellery for many of the UK's High Street's most recognizable names such as Marks and Spencer, River Island, Morgan, Next and Lola Rose.

She is skilled in a vast range of jewellery making skills from traditional benchwork through to using leather, suede and mixed media. The inspiration behind her work stems from the vibrancy of the regions she has lived in and the strong personalities who have influenced her life.

Having always loved making things, whether they be craft, accessories or jewellery, alongside running her business, she regularly teaches at the London Jewellery School to help pass on some of her knowledge and passion for jewellery to others.
