Over £70K raised

and 179 investors! 

"I am so grateful and overwhelmed that during extremely difficult circumstances I managed to exceed my crowdfunding target! Such a great way to end a very challenging year and now I'm looking forward to the exciting times ahead for Loupe in 2021 and beyond!"

Amanda Mansell Founder

During September to November 2020 in the middle of a pandemic, 179 investors helped me raise over £70K to get Loupe off the ground to make it a reality! 

Wow we did it!

The crowdfunding journey is over! 




Hatton Garden
workspace coming soon! 
Bench spaces,
selling opportunities, business support and more!

Loupe will offer affordable jewellery bench space, and a range of skills and business support activities uniquely delivered through a retail environment, providing selling opportunities for designer-makers and craftsmen and women who are the beating heart of Hatton Garden - London’s world renowned, historic Jewellery Quarter.

The premises will undergo a major refit with support from Camden Council to bring the space back to affordable use, specifically for jewellers in Hatton Garden.  The Hatton Garden BID is also extremely supportive and sees an absolute need for such a project to ensure that every opportunity is given to retain craftsmanship, talent and creativity within Hatton Garden.  It also offers potential opportunities to forge even stronger links with the jewellery industry and wider business community

"We need to face the current desperate situation, and overcome the challenges facing this special industry during a significant period of change and re-development. If not, then Hatton Garden will become just another shopping high street with new shallow and short-term property developments and the beating heart that breaths life into it will be lost forever. This rich history and creativity could never be re-introduced into Central London’s complex infrastructure " Amanda Mansell


It's early days for this new venture so the purpose of this website is to provide you with information and updates as the exciting plans unfold.

However feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions, it will be great to hear from you.

Thanks for dropping by!
