Looking for gifts to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, friendships or holiday periods should be simpler than ever, now. Online shopping means that we have access to a global emporium of goods, and we don’t even have to leave the house! So why is it that, with thousands of sites to choose from, it can still be ridiculously hard to find just the right gift for the occasion?
Perhaps it’s because special gifts are all about celebrating the unique qualities of a person, or a relationship. Which would explain why the normal run of gifts simply don’t seem to do the job. At Corzo & Wood we don’t mass produce jewellery; we design gifts for unique individuals.
Who Are Corzo & Wood?
We’re Violeta Corzo and Sarah Wood. Together we design and make contemporary silver jewellery. This is a passion we’ve shared for many years now, and in 2017 we found the perfect premises for our jewellery studio. The Claydon Estate in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside is a popular National Trust property. In the Georgian cobbled courtyard alongside art galleries, independent shops, and an eatery serving up delicious food, you’ll find the Corzo & Wood studio and gift shop.
There’s not a day goes by when we don’t acknowledge how lucky we are to work in such beautiful surroundings. Each season impacts the light and the natural environment around us, and these changing moods feed directly into our jewellery designs. We also love being able to host ‘experience days’ for small groups wanting to create their own jewellery to take home, or to offer as a gift to someone special.
The Corzo & Wood Online Collection
We always enjoy welcoming visitors to our shop and studio, but the vast majority of our clients find us online. That’s why we’re now displaying the full range of our handcrafted silver jewellery via our online shop. There you can take your time to browse our earrings, cuff links, stacking rings, pendants, wrapped rings, bracelets and bangles.
Each piece represents a unique design which is then realised using a blend of traditional and contemporary jewellery making techniques. We don’t rush the process of creating our jewellery, which is why each piece is intricately detailed, and each element of the design is created by hand. You can also browse a selection of the gifts we sell in our shop, including bags, cosmetics, home ware and scarves.
Design Your Own Gift
As an extra special gift, you could treat your friend to a day with you, making jewellery away from the hustle and bustle of the world. We run small-group design and make jewellery workshops which allow you to create unique pieces to wear or give as a special present. Workshop participants are given step-by-step tuition in traditional and contemporary jewellery making techniques, and given time and space to create their own silver jewellery.
