The votes have been counted, and the winners announced, revealing a designer-maker jewellery boutique as the most loved shop in Shoreditch and Hoxton.
For the 2018 Time Out Love London Awards, which are supported by the Mayor of London, locals have decided jewellery designer Rachel Entwistle has the best store in the area it resides.
Sixty thousand votes were cast in this year’s Love London Awards, with thousands of people nominating their favourite places in more than a dozen categories.
While there were 13 overall winners, the publication also named the best of class in each London neighbourhood, where a jewellery designer was recognised for impressing lcoals.
Award-winning jewellery designer Rachel Entwistle opened her Shoreditch boutique in 2015 to showcase and sell her unique pieces, as well as few others by select guest designers.
Inspired by ‘culture, symbolism and the arcane’ discovered while on her travels, Entwistle utilises the ancient concepts behind amulets, talismans and other kinds of protective symbols in her designs and contemporises them with influences from her east London environment.
