Meet Joe, our resident plant-man
So many of you will have met Joe, Matthew’s fiancé. He’s been with the company for years, and has helped shape the Matthew Calvin brand to be what it is today. From manning stands at retail shows, to helping set up pop-up shops, to assisting with product design, to looking after the studio, Joe’s been part of it all! Green fingered at heart, Joe’s full time job is in Horticultural Maintenance, so whenever he’s in the studio he spends his time making sure our many plants are happy and alive, and can often be found wandering around in dungarees (Colin in tow), with a watering can in hand!
What’s your go-to meal for a cozy night in?

What’s your favourite local hidden gem?
Go to trashy movie?
I couldn’t possibly start the day without…?
“If it’s shaped like a plant and made from Sterling Silver I’m probably going to love it!”
Top 4 Matthew Calvin picks and why?
1 – Crook Studs
I love the simplicity of the Crook Studs – this is the first pair of earrings that I helped Matthew design.
2 – Monstera Studs
Anyone that knows me will understand why I love this design… if it’s shaped like a plant and made from Sterling Silver I’m probably going to love it!
3 – Engravable Disc Pendant
Matthew engraved one of these with a J&M on each side as he knew I’d love it. I never take it off.
4 – Tiny Tube Studs
Great for everyday wear, I always wear one of these in my second piercing with a small hoop in my first.
