Ready for some more delicious statement jewellery? This gorgeous collection by independent jewellery label Nylon Sky was born out of a love for geometric pattern and laser-cutting,..and is proving to be right up our street! Having started their roots in London, Nylon Sky now lovingly hand-construct all their pieces from their Barcelona studio, drawing inspiration from Ancient Egypt, faraway lands, bygone eras and art deco glamour. Keep your peepers open as this label is now stocked in over 20 galleries and boutiques worldwide throughout, Europe, Asia and the USA.
We are big fans of Brighton based jeweller Fawn & Rose, in fact one half of Morning Edit is the proud owner of a gorgeous geometric necklace thanks to the oh so generous other half (ahem…). We love the simplicity, the so on trend geometric designs and the minty fresh colour palette. I have sat here trying to pick a favourite and have failed miserably, managing to narrow it down to around 4. The great news is that they’re so affordable I don’t have to spend all evening deliberating and can treat myself to a couple. Hurrah! Join me in some retail therapy on their website here.
Ok..so the weather is rubbish.. It’s cold, it’s a little bit snowy (in places)…and summer suddenly feels a very long way off! But these unique, handmade bangles from Australian design company TreeHorn Design help us daydream that warmer climes are just around the corner… (ahhhhhh…bliss!). TreeHorn Design is a small business run from a little workshop in Melbourne using either reclaimed or sustainably grown timber and recycled cardboard paper. And their sugar-almoned palettes are cheering us up perfectly. Thank you, Treehorn!
It’s been such a long time since we’ve featured any jewellery here on Morning Edit, and so it’s back with a bang today with the gorgeous work of San Francisco designer Molly M Designs. Trained traditionally as an architect, it was after using a laser cutter to make her architectural models that she recognised it’s potential to make some stunning jewellery and homeware products. And boy, are we glad she did!
Molly is always on the lookout for salvaged and scrap materials that can be transformed by a lasercut design; bamboo, birch from responsibly farmed forests, wool salvaged from surplus army clothing, suede reclaimed from second hand jackets and warehouse surplus..plus a multitude of scrap wood veneers from local cabinetmakers. We adore this collection and applaud her resourceful & ethical approach! Come drool over the following…we’ve picked out our favourite necklaces, but her website shows a huge array of earrings too!
The work of bespoke jeweller Jennie Sharman-Cox is pretty breathtaking. It’s military & victorian gothic influence is both ‘of the moment’ and timeless..and the detail and craftsmanship gets a big salute from us! Jennie creates individually hand-sewn jewellery, heavily textured & decorated with antique & vintage components. Old linens & grosgrain layered with lace, vintage faux pearls & gems, seed beads, original military regalia, glass eyes & skulls all come together in her work. And what a combination.. Prices vary from £60 to £200 depending on the detail and work involved. Feast your eyes on the following…
Do take a look at the jewellery from Lorena Barrezueta, as we have a feeling you are going to love it! We especially adore her ‘Listen Lady’ Graphic Bangles below…. VERY cool. We’re loving the mint and pale orange and lemon…a really nice contrast with the chunky masculinity of the designs and decorations…Mmmmmmm…..!!!
Lorena was born in New York of Ecuadorian and Puerto Rican descent, and her upbringing, traveling and education have all helped to develop and refine her “appreciation for beauty in the ordinary and admiration for various forms of etiquette”. She now works from her Brooklyn studio expanding her diverse and exciting product range, and we’ll be bringing more from Lorena’s product range for you real soon. Watch this space!
There is a wonderful jewellery shop on Cheshire Street, just off Brick Lane in the East End of London and it houses some absolutely gorgeous pieces that really take your breath away! Amy Anderson is the designer and ultimate creative force behind the Comfort Station label – following a Fine Art degree, and then a stall in Portobello Market. But what initially started as a part-time side venture to fund her art practice quickly grew into a full-time business and shops were soon knocking at her door.
Limited edition ranges of printed crockery, jewellery with hidden messages, unusual themes, materials and techniques are just some of the things keeping her busy in the studio. Every piece of jewellery is handcrafted at the Comfort Station studio in East London to exacting standards thus keeping it from becoming a mass-produced object. No animal products are used in the collections, and all the wood is from sustainable resources and manufacturing solely within the UK.
You’ll be pleased to know that Comfort Station has an online store – making the items even harder to resist! However, we really recommend a visit to the store if you are in the area – it has subsequently been featured in fashion and design publications not only for its products but also for its unique interior! Purrrrrrrr….
We love the beautiful jewellery designed and hand made by Kate Hamilton-Hunter in her studio on the North Wales coast. We particularly like her vintage style range, hand-made from modern biscuit, tea and cake tins, the vintage style of print on the collection give us a nostalgic feeling. There are four different styles in the range vintage style’, pretty floral, bright floral, graphic or kitsch and we are finding it difficult to choose a favourite. We have featured the vintage style range below but you can see all of her collections on her website, HERE.
Bjørg Nordli-Mathisen grew up in the north of Norway and began making one-of-a-kind jewellery whilst living in India in 2004. With a background from the arts, she has upheld a nomadic lifestyle, always drifting towards new corners of the world in search of inspiration.
Bjørg releases two collections per year, and whether the specific inspiration comes from surrealism, Charles Darwin experiments or ancient myths, we cannot help but be seduced by what she is creating. Check the website out for yourself.. it truly is a feast for the eyes..
Mumbai-based ad and design agency Hyphen recently launched their fabulous ‘ish’ watch, inspired by an infamous Indian insight that has at it’s core the inability to be on time. How true this is, we cannot comment, but we love how it gives the term of being fashionably late a whole new relevance!… Not good for meetings perhaps, but perfect for anyone looking for something stylish and special! We love it!
