Don't forget London fashion week is not just about textiles, Oh no, we mustn't forget those jewellery designers. I was told the ones to watch out for are... of course Alex Munroe who kate moss, Amy Whinehouse and Sienna Miller favour, Elenor Ford and Amy Anderson. This is the bumblebee necklace that sienna has.
Elenor Ford is inspired by decorative arts of world cultures, celebrating the skill and time tested beauty of craft. Her jewellery shows her keen interest in traditional craft techniques with a contemporary twist to create stunning and desirable jewellery that is innovative and modern but has a timeless appeal: http://www.eleanorford.com/
My favourite has to be Amy Anderson though with her quirky designs she started out as a fine artist and decided to have a market stall at portabello market, to fund her art practice, this then developed, as her stall and work became more popular.

Although I love jewellery I see alot of jewellery as mini, wearable, sculptures so when I came across these beauties by Jessica Joslin I just had to blog her sculptures. Jessica started by collecting dead flies on her windowsill and looking at them under a microscope, gradually her collection grew and grew and progressed to collecting skulls, dead birds and other creatures. She puts her sculptures together with lots of shiny pieces of brass and found objects, to create something truely special. Take a look :http://www.jessicajoslin.com/jessica/index.html

Aren't these just beautiful ! Onyx skull ring by Wendy Brandes made with 18K gold, onyx, tsavorites and diamonds. Absolutely stunning. These are one of a kind. Wendy creates pieces that are bold and eye-catching, yet feminine and organic. Mechanical pieces that open and close, unscrew or twist are her specialties.
