Technically I'm a Kate but most people call me Katie...therefore, I'm staking my claim on these lovely pieces!

Todd Reed

Thursday, May 28, 2009
I'm a little lost for words at the beauty of this jewellery by Todd Reed. The use of raw diamonds doesn't detract from the fact that these are all pieces of fine jewellery and I lovethe company philosphy that trends and fashion won't alter their design aesthetic. Whilst I do like trend driven jewellery, it's always great to see someone sticking to their vision, especially when it works as well as this.

It's also really interesting to read that he uses his training as a pastry chef as the basis for the way in which he makes his jewellery! Both are equally tasty professions :)

Liaung Chung Yen

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Liaung Chung Yen creates jewellery he likens to "small expressions of art, desire, wit and sensuality." In his bio he also mentions how the pieces are like small sculptures and I definitely agree.  They're like little works of art but to me they're quite playful at the same time.  There's a happy quality to them that I can't quite put my finger on.  Maybe in these pieces it's the little round buds, they're cute without being cutesy or maybe it's just in the name of the collection "Flourish"

House of Harlow 1960

Tuesday, May 19, 2009
It's not often that I'm taken with celebrity designed jewellery ranges but I think Nicole Richie has done herself proud with her House of Harlow 1960 range. Not only are the pieces wearable but they actually reflect her own sense of style (plus I'm a sucker for anything with rose gold!)
