Jana Reinhardt, based at the Oaklands Business Park, was founded in 2006 by husband and wife team Jana Reinhardt and Ross Cutting.

The animal lovers have recently begun a partnership with UK charity the National Animal Welfare Trust, making a donation to the NAWT for each sale made this month.

And they have also created several exclusive pieces intended to raise funds for a number of animal welfare charities handpicked by the couple.

Ross said: “We’ve always been great animal lovers. We have a Beagle ourselves, who is a super important member of the family.

“Our dog has a great life as a much-loved family pet, but we’re keenly aware that many other animals aren’t so lucky.

“Seeing the suffering that so many animals go through, it’s hard not to feel moved to do something.

“To be able to use our talents to help charities that work towards improving animal welfare seemed like a positive step we could take to help.”

Jana said: “I love hand-carving animals for my jewellery collections. They are such a rich source of inspiration to me that it seemed right to create some pieces that would give something back to vulnerable animals.

“Ross and I are both passionate about animal welfare, so being able to use our skills to make something that can potentially help animals in need means a lot to us.”

The new collection features hoop earrings and necklace with a hand-carved greyhound pup, captured mid-run.

A total of £10 from the sales of the pieces, which cost from £110 and £95 respectively, will be donated to Galgos del Sol, a charity that rescues and rehomes greyhounds.

Jana said she wanted to show the dogs in a ‘happy’ running pose, rather than in ‘racing’ position, to show her opposition to greyhound racing.

Other items include an Orangutan necklace, with £20 from sales going towards OVAID - a charity that helps these endangered animals by providing veterinary equipment and medicines and sending vets to orangutan rescue groups and centres in Indonesia and Malaysia.

Meanwhile £10 from the sale of each of their fox necklaces, priced from £149, will go to Keep the Ban, a campaign set up to stop the hunting act repeal.
