Guywire originated in my Dad's workshop over 10 years ago. It has grown and developed over the years, firstly with addition of the adjustable range by my brother Pippin. Following this my brother and I started F3 Design. It was here we further developed and refined the adjustable range and added the multi strand, rings and earrings. Guywires are now made in Lyttelton, New Zealand by my husband,Lewis and I. Very much a family business!
The name was born through its connection to the materials used to make Guywires. Namely, the stainless steel wire with which in shipping and yachting terms is called a 'guy rope'. The name has stuck and independently of us has become an 'in the know' accessory.
