Jewellery Week Special: Jenny Llewellyn
June 21, 2012 § 1 Comment
This is a blog post about a very exciting brand I came across during London Jewellery Week Treasure Exhibition Launch Event. To read my report on the event look it up on my twitter @fashionwishlist.
At first look this jewellery appears to be alive – delicate and natural it requires a double take to grasp the idea behind the design. In fact this jewellery is made out of colourful and luminescent (yes, it glows in the dark!) silicon crafted into various shapes and set in precious metals. While there is a wide range of collections, my faivourite by far is Plume and Who Needs Pearls, items from which are presented on the pictures above. If you are looking for statement pieces that will draw attention and excite fashion lovers with unique approach to design – this is a brand for you!
Jenny Llewellyn is an East London designer that graduated from Middlesex University 5 years ago with a BA degree in Jewellery making and since then pursued designing and promoting her own jewellery brand. Her inspiration often comes from the deep sea live, which gives the pieces a very harmonious natural feel.
Who Needs Pearls collection, which was launched at the event I had a pleasure to attend, is really striking. At a fraction of the price of real pearls and of course with no ethical questions of pearl harvesting, this is a jewellery gem indeed. I could not help myself but feel like I want, indeed need each and every pearl-inspired item!
The prices for the jewellery on the picture above is as follows: Blue/Green Plume necklace £800, Three Cup studs in gold £80, Blue/Green Cascade earrings in gold £230, Who Needs Pearls necklace £1200 and Pink/Orange Plume hoops £155.
