My Doris is a jewellery brand celebrating colour and creativity from around the world. It includes stylish jewellery, accessories and homeware.

 

Designed by women, for women

The collection centres around making ethical, long-lasting pieces for a growing family of stockists. They want their pieces to make us feel joyful – which we certainly did, when we saw the new collection at Spring Fair.

Who is Doris?

Katie Williamson set up My Doris a few years ago, from her Suffolk studio, to bring together eclectic accessories from around the world - born from her love of vintage jewellery, retro discoveries and an eye for detail. The quirky name comes from the nickname Katie’s Dad had for her Mum, whose name was nothing like Doris (Pamela!)

Skilled Artisans

All handmade, Katie and her team now work in partnership with skilled artisans across the world, who take great pride in their crafts. Traditions, techniques, textures and tones from India, Uzbekistan, Turkey and Vietnam give every My Doris piece a unique feel. Their traditions and techniques are what makes this collection so incredibly special.

Many of you will remember this vivid and colourful collection in our Leamington store in 2019, the year before lockdown hit. We also brought it to the Garden Party that year – gorgeous rings, earrings and bracelets in a multitude of colours. With My Doris – once it’s gone, it’s gone, as most collections are one-offs, sourced in small quantities for that season.

 

Their aim has always been to be 'joyful and optimistic'

– but that this is even more important in these challenging times.

“There’s a lot of enamel jewellery coming in, really bright, bold colours, in clashing pinks, oranges, greens, that is mega on trend and really joyful. I think we all need this year,” she says. 

My Doris Woven Bracelets

We have chosen some of the colourful woven pieces too, and some gorgeous stone-set pieces – all intended to make you smile. The earrings in particular just make us think of glamorous Summer holidays, somewhere sunny. We don’t care if it’s Cornwall, Corfu or Cancun – we just want the sunshine!

Shell Earrings

Katie now employs a team of nine people at a warehouse in Bury St Edmunds, with 2,000 lines which are stocked at a number of boutiques across the UK, including Fabulous online.

“I love all things vintage, quirky, funky – anything that’s a bit of a statement and quite bold,” she says. “I’ve always loved looking round flea markets, love a charity shop find, I’m always looking for something that’s unique.” 

Enamel Bangle

Here at Fabulous, we are very excited to get some of Katie’s new collections back in stock, as we have a real desire to fill our website with colourful, celebratory jewellery to make people smile.

The world is a challenging place right now – and most of us can’t influence what is happening out there. But we can work on our own mood and mindset, to be as positive as we possibly can. Some fun jewellery from My Doris will definitely lift your mood!
