Lauren Griffiths is an award-winning jewellery designer and the founder of Little Joy Jewellery.

Fairtrade certified and fully qualified goldsmith, Lauren learnt her craft in Birmingham’s renowned Jewellery Quarter before launching her habour-side studio in Bembridge on the Isle of Wight.


Passionate about artisanal techniques and using sustainable materials, Lauren makes minimalist, fairtrade pieces with a raw, contemporary aesthetic.She combines stripped-back design with age-old methods of jewellery making to create modern pieces with timeless appeal.

Drawing inspiration from the minimal lines that occur in the natural world, with Little Joy Jewellery, Lauren has developed a distinctive style that’s both simple and intricate.


Little Joy was founded upon the principles of minimalism, mindfulness and the art of slow-livingAs such, Lauren is committed to responsibly sourcing every element in the Little Joy businessfrom Fairtrade precious metals and GIA certified diamonds, to recycled packaging and her wooden ring boxes, that are made from the offcuts from renowned furniture makers Byron & Gomez


Each hand-crafted piece is a work of art and heart. There is intention and meaning behind each piece, whether it’s a necklace from the Little Joy collection, a bespoke creation, a secret engraving or a custom piece that’s reimagined from inherited jewels. Ultimately Lauren’s aim is to spread everyday joy with handmade fine jewellery that’s mindfully made.

Lauren ships her creations worldwide and offers a full-bespoke service.
