Dudley & Roo came about in very early 2016 although wasn’t let loose on the public until later on that year and the welcome we have received has been amazing.
Chloe is the mainly one-woman army behind the name Dudley & Roo (although there is sometimes the input from family members!). Based in a small village in Lincolnshire, Chloe is the one who you will discuss ideas, stories and messages with; she designs, creates, hand stamps, assembles, polishes, packages and sends out all orders received too. Just recently she's also taken on the role of silversmith and the nature and natural style of her work is beginning to show. You’ll see that we are showcasing some of the sterling silver designs on the Dudley & Roo Facebook and Instagram pages so keep checking back for more, though commissions are always very much welcomed.
What’s in a name? Dudley is actually our big, black Labrador and Roo is the nickname which was given to our son when he was born in 2015. Since then, a daughter has burst on to the scene creating her own whirlwind of crazy which is why all the new sterling silver makes are laid out on pink.
Although it’s not said enough, supporting a small business is so important and we are sincerely and truly grateful for all the support, custom, likes and orders we receive. Not only does it make us feel immensely proud that you’ve chosen Dudley & Roo to make that special item for you or your family and friends, but it also puts food on our table, clothes on our backs and a roof over our head. We hope it makes you feel warm and fuzzy knowing you’ve done that and also knowing that a lot of care, personal attention and effort has gone into creating each and every thing that comes out of the Dudley & Roo workshop. Please do remember that every item has been made or assembled by an actual person and not a conveyor belt!
Family is at the very heart of this business and you will see that shine through in some of the standard designs and in some of the designs we work with you to create too. Again, thank you so much for all your support and business so far - we hope to work with you again, or for the very first time, very soon!
