Family-owned jewellery and gift shop, Artemis, is celebrating it’s fifth anniversary of trading at their premises on Gloucester Road.

Owned my mother and daughter team, Catherine and Carrie, it is best known as the home of Catherine Amesbury Contemporary Jewellery Design

Catherine said: “We chose the Gloucester Road because it is our local neighbourhood.  We have lived in Bishopston for 27 years, my daughter and business partner Carrie was born here and went to primary school locally.  We started the jewellery business from our kitchen table when she was just 10 after she had attended a silver smithing course which inspired me to follow in her footsteps!

The shop functions as a workshop where clients can come and purchase from the display or sit and take their time to either customise or commission bespoke pieces in a relaxed atmosphere. 

“We are so excited to be celebrating 5 years in business,” added Catherine.

“Artemis has grown from strength to strength even though we took the risk to open during the recession.  We are both passionate about our jewellery designs and the special and unique shopping experience we have created for our customers who now come from far and wide to visit us.”

This Aladdin’s cave of treasures, with velvet and silk accessories to leather handbags and purses, also has a gallery space downstairs where local artists exhibit and sell their work. Artemis stock a unique range of gorgeous items all linked by their beautifully feminine nature - ideal for a birthday gift for someone special.
