Fine and fashion jewellers team up for winter show on market street.
Jewellery designers Ikuria and Karen Morrison are joining forces with Tawny Philips and Simon Rees to host a winter pop-up shop at NumberNinetyFour, a jewellery boutique on Columbia Road in London’s Shoreditch.
The store plays host to regular jewellery pop-up boutiques and has hosted designers Tina Lilienthal and Tomasz Donocik’s Tina’n’Tom boutique as well as a jewellery pop-up featuring Rachel Entwistle.
Ikuria, Karen Morrison and Tawny Philips are now working with Rees, owner of NumberNinetyFour, having launched the winter jewellery showcase on Saturday.
The store, which normally only opens on weekends, will have four special Wednesday night openings during November and December to attract Christmas shoppers.
Ikuko Kurahone, Ikuria’s designer, said: “I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with such an experienced jeweller as Simon and to showcase my jewellery at NumberNinetyFour, one of London’s prime venues for independent jewellery designers and a popular spot for shoppers.”

The NumberNinetyFour store is run by Simon Rees who has made bespoke jewellery for 25 years. He now works with independent designers, showcasing their work through special exhibitions at the store, which is located on the same street as the famous Sunday flower market which attracts hundreds of visitors every weekend.
