To mark the end of Jewellery Week, we decided to take a trip to Treasure, the fantastic London Jewellery Exhibition located at the beautiful setting of Somerset House in The Strand, London.
The exhibition, organised by the East London Design Show, is designed to allow visitors to discover and learn more about up and coming jewellers, new materials and different inspirations. The numerous galleries – spread over two floors - covered fashion, design, fine jewellery, Essence (the more ethical designs) and Emerge (where visitors could discover new jewellers' talents).
One particular designer who stood out for us was Alan Ardiff, whose interesting pieces move in line with the wearer’s head movement. A very simple idea which produces very effective jewellery and pushes the realms of the traditional. The designs by Modular Minds are based on the ‘flat pack’ concept – each piece can be flattened for easy packaging and then opened to wear. Finally, we loved the attention Jessica De Lotz pays to individuality within the intricate designs through the use of personalised wax seal stamp designs, ensuring each creation is completely unique.
It was great to see so much talent under one roof!
We will be displaying the Illustrious and Insider collections alongside unveiling our third, Fusion at the International Jewellery London Show in September this year. Let the planning begin…!
