Shop Profile : The Secret Garden
The Secret Garden is a jewellery business in Basingstoke owned and run by Milena. Milena imports jewellery: silver and semi-precious stones from Italy and Mexico, and Baltic amber from Poland, as well as designs her own range (Milly 925).
The Secret Garden opened in 2001, but Milena's love for jewellery has its origin in the days when her family lived in Mexico, where she discovered the wonderful silversmiths of the city of Taxco.
When Milena's family later moved to the UK the enthusiastic response she received for the personal pieces in her home gave her the idea of starting her own business.
Milena originally started selling silver and flowers –hence the name The Secret Garden. She soon got such a great response to her Mexican pieces that she just “forgot the flowers”, and set up at the "top of town" in Basingstoke.
Milena's tastefully selected jewellery and unique designs have made the business a roaring success.
The Secret Garden is certified Trollbeads, Nomination Jewellery, Kit Heath, Nikki Lissoni and Storm Watches retailer!
The Secret Garden website (now a family business) is our next retail incarnation......
