CRU Kafe at Astley Clarke
Earlier this month we teamed up with London’s sustainable coffee company CRU Kafe to co-host a personal shopping event at Junction Mews. Guests enjoyed servings of aromatic coffee, breakfast and a personal preview of our new fine jewellery collection Phototaxis with designer Dominic Jones.
Best known for their ethically sustainable coffee in fully biodegradable pods, the CRU Kafe team have previously worked at London Fashion Week supplying some of the industries’ most eminent figures with their premium coffee.
With a reputation for keeping London’s fashionistas on the move, this was the perfect partnership for a morning of jewellery shopping.

Guests were welcomed at our newly refurbished London boutique by the team at Astley Clarke, Dominic Jones and CRU Kafe’s founder, Bodil Bain. Conversations flowed about the latest jewellery designs from our fine and contemporary collections while guests learned about the inspiration and techniques behind the beautifully designed pieces from the designer himself.
Amongst our guests was Cyntra Charlesworth, lifestyle blogger and founder of fashion and wellness blog Cyn City. Riley Uggla, entrepreneur and founder of luxury loungewear brand Made by Riley, also joined in the fun along with Instagram influencer in the making Tabitha Willett who was seen wearing our Speckled Magpie Moth Bar Drop Earrings.
We were delighted to see Natalie Salmon from the Evening Standard and CEO of luxury gift-listing website Whisper Me, Penny Verbe. Whisper Me's Abby Johnson was spotted in the Malachite Marcel Hoop Earrings from our Stilla collection and the Mini Lightning Bolt Biography Single Stud Earring, showing us all how earring stacks are done.
There were many more guests who attended the event, all of whom we would like to thank for sharing an enjoyable morning at Astley Clarke.
