I’m Chrissi, the designer-maker behind RUBI WARREN. I was drawn to jewellery design after studying reiki and exploring the energetic properties of gemstones and crystals. I wanted to create elegant and stylish jewellery that would also enable people to benefit from this energy. I studied jewellery design and manufacture at Holts Academy, and have been hooked ever since.
I love to make as well as design; I find it meditative, and I get to impart Reiki energy to the stones I work with. The name given to my brand of jewellery comes from a little bit of my personal history. Ruby Warren was the name of one of my great aunts, a charismatic and somewhat enigmatic lady with a lot of hidden depths. Ruby in the ancient language of Sanskrit also translates to “King of Gems”, which felt appropriate. I changed Ruby to Rubi, to make it my own, and there it is.
