MARINE INSPIRED JEWELLERY

by Alexandra May | June 02, 2015 | 0 Comments

Ever since Vogue reported that nautical-themed jewellery was set to be big this summer, I've been keeping an eye out for any pieces containing pretty pearls, blue gems and iridescent shells. 

Those who want to give a subtle but colourful nod to the sea trend will love the ocean-blue hues that can be found in Philippe Ferrandis's collection, while fans of statement jewellery won't go unnoticed in these offbeat fish pendant earrings from my long-time favourite, Ayala Bar. Madrid-based designer, Ricardo Douahi, features sea colours in these nature-inspired, hand-embroidered earrings that recall beautiful ocean flora.

Need something more flamboyant? I was pleased to discover that my latest delivery of Askew London jewellery contained a number of marine inspired pieces, each one replete with the usual Askew sparkle, detail and decoration. While Sue Askew's work is admired by designer jewellery fans worldwide, each of these pieces is part of a very limited run, making them perfect for those who want something that's both high-fashion and one-of-a-kind. These three are fit for a mermaid princess:

NEW IN: Askew London

by Alexandra May | December 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

I have just had a fabulous new delivery in from Askew London, just in time for Christmas. 

Susan Askew's signature animals and insects have made a return with beautiful earrings with lions, cats, frogs, rainbow owls, falcons, swallows and of course, bees, all encrusted with vintage stones and crystals. Each delivery of Askew is a complete surprise, as Susan designs and makes her jewellery in conjunction with what vintage stones and beads she has at any one time, and we are NEVER disappointed!

Her show-stopping necklaces are embellished with vintage glass stones in an array of colours, which are perfect for the festive season, as well as heavily encrusted brooches. 

However, don't delay, as Askew London usually flies out as quickly as it arrives…
