For spoils x

With Jennie Kwon jewellery there is a lightness of touch like a kiss from an angel.

Her choice of colours add to a sense of feminine playfulness: There’s no pressure to conform to symmetry.

One to remember.

Within reach x

For an aspirational label, Isabel Marant manages to produce an every-now-and-then treatable jewellery range that’s naturally quaffable.


There’s an edgy, urban vibe that’s highly wearable.

There’s more..

The tour de force of Vanda Jacintho is not limited to clothes.  Her jewellery also rocks.

Nuanced and complex, these are statement earrings with a built in spotlight.

If an Indian summer comes in the autumn, what name do you give a summer that arrives in spring…and disappears?

The gardens need the rain..but I was so looking forward to the easy living of summer dresses.

Which has been a brilliant discovery of older years and has resulted in a serious, but sensible shrinking of my wardrobe.

There’s no need to think, a dress is the perfect capsule wardrobe in itself.

All effort can go into beautiful, stand out jewellery, like all of these earrings by Finery London.

Fun, Sassy and succulent.  Now all we need is the sun.

Jennifer Fisher x

Like the lights, Jennifer Fisher’s jewellery first caught the eye because of it’s soft detailing and gently rolling inspiration. Simple but substantial.

But it was her charms that really caught the eye: fun, rocking icons of joy.

They’re on the lust list for when my boat comes in.

Together with a total love of colour.20d3eecbdcf2c85beefc17615a0508de 4be3e7401503037397ca4d9522036afa

Each piece proudly nods to its heritage roots whilst still being totally unique.

But Cicolini’s work is a third retro 80s, a third Indian, a third British…and totally fabulous.

‘Ear ear…

Need that effortlessly cool present that also has to sit happily in the wallet? The answer could be an ear cuff…brilliant in so many ways: They work equally well on unpierced ears, the range of prices is immense (these are £12.46 plus shipping)..and you only actually need to buy one. Winner, winner chicken dinner.

Some of them do resemble those metal puzzles that used to appear in crackers. But don’t let that put you off.

Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say and not giving a damn.  So says Gore Vidal.  And Mags from Toolally jewellery…

I never thought I’d find perspex to be so attractive again, but these blaze the line between cool retro and hot modern.

 

I smell a trend.

There’s something special about wearing simple jewellery in the summer months when everything becomes a little less pressured and a little more precious.
