Rat Betty is an independent jewellery brand. The pieces are designed & handmade in Brighton, UK. Gold pieces are cast in Fairtrade gold. Sterling silver pieces are cast in 100% certified recycled silver. Packaging is recycled and recyclable.
Millie Hand created Rat Betty in 2018. With no professional jewellery qualifications, Millie found her love for jewellery design through a council run evening course whilst working full-time in London.
Moving to Canada in 2017, she took the opportunity to make a career change, seeking out experience in the jewellery industry. She took an entry level job working in the wax and casting team at a well known Vancouver based jewellery company.
Rat Betty came about as a concept once Millie began designing the type of pieces she’d always wanted to wear and never been able to find.
