Anyone who regularly reads this blog will know that I love anything nature inspired. These pieces by Annette Ferdinandsen fit the bill but with an occassional little sinister twist...just look at those litle bird claws...
Bing Bang has long been one of my favourite designers after spotting it in New York (in Barney's I think). I only recently discovered that one of the founders, Anna Sheffield started her own fine jewellery line which is equally beautiful. What attracted me to Bing Bang was it's lovely quirkiness but also the almost sentimental keepsake quality to each of its pieces. This is continued throught Anna's collection in which she has achieved an edgy feel, using traditonal materials but in unconventional settings.
Just take a peek at these pieces from her upcoming collection...her interpretation of diamonds is fantastic...who could resist diamonds on a diamond?!
And this inverted ring is fabulous...such a clever idea
I've posted about Q-Pot numerous times on this blog...they never fail to put a smile on my face. Admittedly, when I think of my dream piece of jewellery, "hamburger" isn't the first thing that comes to mind but for the fast food fan...who knows?!
The cream brooch and petit choux ring are pretty cute though, as are these rings
I also noticed that in conjunction with the re-opening of the V&A's jewellery section, the fabulous shop (who can resist a museum shop?) is selling some Q-pot pieces as well as some other lovely bits and bobs, more of which I'll post about later.
