The Secret Wardrobe

Make your dreams a reality

"I had an idea of my perfect everyday earrings for many years. Chris helped me turn my ideas into a reality. She took great care to understand my exact requirements. Nothing was too much trouble. Her attention to detail is exacting. I am absolutely delighted with the two pairs of earrings she made for me. I have worn nothing else since. Having something so personal to me and my own specification was a real luxury, and yet great value. I would recommend The Secret Wardrobe and Chris to anyone. Go on treat yourself or a loved one. You won't regret it." Sarah E

Dear Chris, thank you so much for the brilliant earrings, My daughter has had a brilliant year and it was so nice to give her such a special present, she absolutely loves them her face was so lovely to see, she can't believe you made them-thank you again Chris. Val B

The luggage tag arrived today as promised and it is beautiful. I am so pleased with the quality of the workmanship.

Chris was very helpful and accommodating and made it exactly how I requested. I will definitely be looking at Chris' lovely designs in the future for inspiration for future gifts.

I have just received the most beautiful little present for my 50th Birthday! An exquisite silver, paisley-embossed envelope! Inside were tiny letters from each of my children. It took my breath away I have to say and my eyes became suspiciously moist when I discovered the little letters. So personal and precious!  

It is also an amazing piece of craftsmanship: the little hinge alone! And, to cap it all, the envelope closes with the most satisfying little click!!

 

Thank you so much for creating this! I heartily recommend Chris at The Secret Wardrobe. Even more so if you looking for a unique heirloom for that extra special occasion!

"Chris made for me a beautiful little silver heart pendant with a little heart cutout. The workmanship was exquisite and she made it to deadline - I can highly commend her work. She is a true artist."

My wife loved the earrings!!!  Thanks so much. Very cool work you are doing! KC

Very impressed with the service I received from Chris Lewis (The Secret Wardrobe). From start to finish I was kept well informed on how my order was coming along and sent pictures of work-in-progress. I'm over the moon with the finished articles - two different style perfume atomisers and a lovely small oak clock. Beautiful workmanship. I definitely recommend The Secret Wardrobe. BM

Loving the colour, shape and feel of my ring and earrings - designed for me and a perfect fit! Due to my arthritis in my finger joints I havent been able to wear rings until now - thanks to Chris at The Secret Wardrobe. AC

This is a long but extremely deserved review.....

 

Early Dec 2019, my family and I were told that my dad had possibly less than a year to live. For a family who have already lost many members to cancer, this was yet another blow to a close-knit family.

 

Anyway, knowing how rubbish dad is with Christmas present shopping for mum, I took charge and said to the old man (it’s a term of endearment - honestly), that this year he needed to come up with something that mum could cherish. I recommended to him that I knew a lady who could possibly help and so he gave the green light to get in touch with Chris.

 

We met up and over a brew, Chris gently questioned me on mum and dads relationship (she was aware of the cancer and life expectancy). Why was she asking about their relationship? She wanted to ‘feel’ how they felt about each other; she wanted to know how and where they met, their jobs, the sad loss of a daughter & how they coped trying to come to terms with that and then we spoke more on dads terminal diagnosis.

 

Chris recommended an envelope with a letter. Mum loves that old-fashioned communication tool of letter writing, they exchanged many letters whilst they both served in the R.A.F.

With some sneaking around, I managed to get dads signature and he found the words to have written on his letter.

 

An envelope, containing one last letter from her husband, to cherish for a lifetime, even if one of those lives is no longer with us.....he will always be with mum, right there on the left side of her coat, over her heart, always in her heart.

 

Many tears were shed, in the planning, design, handover and giving of such a gorgeous piece. We were extra grateful for the added piece of a daffodil pin; mums favourite flower, bought for her every birthday and anniversary by dad.

 

Chris, you’re an amazing lady with an exceptional talent & my family will be forever grateful for such a perfect piece created with love, formed with love and worn forever, with love.

 

Thank you

I've had so many amazing pieces from Chris. My last piece a heart necklace was for a friend who had finished her chemo, it was a heart within a heart which described her to the T. Absolutely blown away, had my friend in tears, she loves it.

I was very fortunate to receive the silver opal pendant, its absolutely perfect.
