Queen Midas by Rachel Essex

Queen Midas is the brainchild of Rachel Essex who started making jewellery when she inherited her Ukrainian Grandmother’s collection of vintage jewellery, tools and broken curiosities – she had also been a maker - and wanted to give these pieces a new life. As Queen Midas, Rachel has continued to source unusual objects from other decades that tell a story. Each collection is available in very limited numbers as a result.

Queen Midas makes fine jewellery featuring these vintage ephemera and their hand cast, solid gold counterparts. She casts found objects in 9 or 18 carat gold and combines the two elements to create unique, new pieces. Slow fashion, made to last with a buy better, buy less ethos.

The debut Crackerjack collection incorporates 1940s, throwaway charms from American gum ball machines in heirloom quality necklaces. The follow up Acorn collection features unique, Italian cellulose Acorns from the same era. All pieces can made to order from available stock.

Every necklace features Queen Midas’s hallmarked rock hand logo at the clasp and comes in a bespoke, hand made leather box.
