Fonthill Road Christmas Market: Meet the Designer – Margaret Griffith
In the lead up to the Fonthill Road Christmas Market on Saturday 4th December FashionCapital will introduce the designers and brands that will be taking part and selling their unique products. Today it’s the turn of Margaret Griffith and her handcrafted silver jewellery…
Local Islington resident Margaret Griffith crafts jewellery items using quality silver, semi-precious and precious gemstones sourced from reputable companies based in London Hatton Garden. Each item is hallmarked by the London Assay office to ensure the authenticity and quality.
Margaret specialises in creating textured jewellery. She loves pattern and texture and uses a variety of techniques and hammers to create surface textures. Living in north London creates a melting pot for inspiration, with a diverse range of people and influences. Her work is inspired by the surrounding community, nature, man-made and organic materials and her fine art sculptural background.
Margaret comments: “I create stylish contemporary handcrafted silver jewellery with a modern twist. I use traditional silversmithing techniques, to create beautiful, unique and bold customised modern jewellery. I am very much influenced by the contrast between the London urban landscape and the natural environment around me.”
A selection of Margaret’s jewellery designs will be available to view and buy at the Fonthill Road Christmas Market. Her ready-to-wear pieces include: rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets – ideal for a unique Christmas gift.

The market and on-going business support for the area has been made possible by The Welcome Back Fund, providing councils across England a share of £56 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support the safe return to high streets and help build back better from the pandemic. This funding builds on the £50 million Reopening High Street Safely Fund (RHSSF) allocated to councils in 2020 and forms part of the wider support government is providing to communities and businesses.
