About Me

Hi, I'm Marketa,

A jeweller from the lovely town of Newquay in Cornwall. My jewellery is a reflection of three things I adore – the enchanting Cornish coast, the mighty Atlantic Ocean and the fascinating world of bubbles. Their perfect shapes and playful nature not only inspire me but also bring a unique twist to each design.

A New Beginning in Cornwall

Born in the Czech Republic, I moved to Cornwall in 2010 for a summer adventure, but fate had other plans. I fell in love with the wild coast and the Atlantic Ocean. And that wasn’t the only thing that I fell in love with that summer. I met a man who was soon to become my husband. After the birth of our beautiful daughter, I felt inspired to follow my dreams of turning my passion for design and jewellery making into a fully fledged business. Working every spare moment I could find in my studio, my vision started to become a reality. 

Crafting Beauty Inspired by Nature

My fascination with jewellery began in childhood, weaving beaded creations for those dear to me. Encouraged by my family, fellow artists and local courses, I completed distinguished studies at Truro College and the London Jewellery School, turning a passion into my very own business.

Every piece of jewellery I make is a celebration of the beauty around us and a tribute to the things I hold dear – the Cornish coast, the playful bubbles, the Atlantic Ocean and the stories they tell. Feel free to explore my work and share in the beauty of these inspirations.

What does Booblinka mean?

The name Booblinka is Czech meaning ‘tiny bubble’.

“I love water, and I love watching the tiny bubbles rise to the surface. I enjoy that moment of peace when you dive under the water, those few seconds of just me and my thoughts and all those tiny bubbles. The water and the ocean inspire me everyday and the name felt like a good representation of that whilst connecting me and my work to my Czech heritage.”
