Sam’s work is heavily influenced by the mad, bad Victorians, her grandmother’s vintage family album of photographs and her mother’s vintage charm bracelet.

Hoolala is owned and operated by Sam Jones who has been designing and making things since she was little. She has been a freelance designer for the past 8 years.

Sam’s work is heavily influenced by the mad, bad Victorians, her grandmother’s vintage family album of photographs and her mother’s vintage charm bracelet.

She was seduced by tales of her great grand parents - one story in particular was irresistible - the romantic notion of her great grandfather defecting from Russia and arriving in England one day on a boat...He said he was the ship's carpenter but in actual fact he looked more like Russian aristocracy...so she decided to make a charm bracelet that told his story and Hoolala was born.


“I am fascinated by the idea of the charm; in some cultures they are used to attract luck to the wearer whilst in others they are worn to ward off evil. My work revolves around the idea of compulsion and repulsion, the morbid curiosity of the Victorians, the strange, the unusual and my boxes of odd treasures I have collected since childhood.”

Sam has been commissioned to make custom charm bracelets from clients all over the world and has also made collections for several boutiques, including The Black Chandelier in Salt Lake City and Los Angeles, Habit in Chicago, Libertine in Australia and more throughout the UK.

When she is not chasing lambs and collecting odd tea cups she is busy taking photographs and thinking of charming and disturbing stories to incorporate into her jewellery designs.

What people are saying about Hoolala...

'Everything Miss Hoo does is spectacular in it's originality.'

"The creme de la creme. As a designer, Sam can not be beaten for style, originality, patience, value & individuality. The parcels are just a plethora of delights. Have bought many items as gifts and the recipients have been thrilled!"

"Helpful, organized and highly honest seller -- who also makes beautiful things! (even the packaging is gorgeous.)"

'I cannot recommend Hoolala highly enough. Excellent service all round, excellent communication and a thoroughly nice person too boot! The necklace is even more beautiful than it looks in the picture and is presented very beautifully. I shall certainly be shopping here again!'

'The ring is even better than I'd hoped, while the little extras and wrapping made me grin for a good half hour. I fully wish every seller was like yourself, so thank you! EVERYONE i know shall now be forced to experience your quirky-victorian-british-vintage!'

"Rocks harder than Motorhead!"
