Arabel was delighted to be awarded the winner of the 2016 FSB Bedfordshire Business Green Award at the grand Luton Hoo Estate on 7 July.

Working from a small studio in the heart of Bedford, Arabel is one of the few ethical jewellers in the UK. Her online business is going from strength to strength, doubling turnover in the last year.

“I am so pleased that all our hard work to be recognised as an ethical brand is finally being rewarded. Our customers also want to make a difference to the world by buying ethical jewellery and we are thrilled to share the good news with them. We hope this will be the first win of future awards to come!”

Arabel was recently a finalist in the 2016 UK Jewellery Awards and Bedfordshire Business Women Awards. The FSB Bedfordshire Business awards ceremony was an entertaining evening attended by other inspiring businesses in the local area and it was great to celebrate their success.

In her everyday life, Arabel strives to use sustainable practices and support other ethical brands.  She uses a renewable energy supplier, buys second hand goods whenever possible, cycles to work and buys local organic produce.
