We are a team of jewellers and designers who want to create unique, bespoke pieces of the highest quality with an alternative twist. We are based in the North West of England and have many years experience between us in manufacturing jewellery.
Why did we set up the company?
The founding members of Bodika Rocks, after travelling and various jobs within and outside the jewellery trade, decided that we should produce the type of jewellery that we are passionate about. The saying goes do a job you love and you will never work a day in your life. The whole team at Bodika Rocks loves what we do and wouldn’t change it for the world!
Why are we called Bodika Rocks?
This is a question we get asked a lot. We are named after Queen Bodika (or Boudica/Boadicea/Boudicca), who was a queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire in AD 60 ish. She is considered a British folk hero; we liked the way she was strong and got on with it and she Rocks !
*The reason we have spelt it Bodika is because as brilliant as we are at creating jewellery, we are not so amazing at spelling and so Bodika was easier for us to remember!!
Where is Bodika Rocks jewellery made ?
* It does have a trip out to the assay office in Birmingham.
and findings are sometimes purchased
We know you would love to know more about the team at Bodika Rocks even though we hate having our photograph taken and talking about ourselves!!
I've always had a passion for art and design and after raising a baby orangutan in the wild and taught it to play guitar so he could fend for himself, he whispered to me "you should make alternative jewellery" - so I did!!!
After travelling in my formative years with the Russian State Circus and a short time as second mate on a Viking boat, I decided to follow the family's destiny and make alternative jewellery like my granddad did, and my grandad before him, and my grandad before him and my grandad before him
She's our imaginary friend! She makes most of the business decisions; we don't know what we would do without her!
