It is Michael, my late father, who we can thank for VCJ. He was one of the pioneers of creating highly desirable hand painted anodised aluminium jewellery.
Those of you who knew him you will remember his unfathomable enthusiasm and zest for life which was both infectious and inspirational to others. He found beauty everywhere and anywhere from battered old objects in charity shops to the latest dazzling model on the Mercedes forecourt. Born in 2000, the VCJ brand erupted from his passion for art and design and a fundamental desire to produce unique and highly desirable statement jewellery.
He was diagnosed with cancer in 2011 and despite putting up a good fight he died in 2012.
Deeply missed and never forgotten.
