Well I know it's a little late, as LFW has now been and gone....but so much was seen and done over that week. it's hard to get it all up at the same speed you take everything in. I forgot to mention the great little pop-up showcase that I went to – the Drury Petit Salon. The venue was beautiful and was located just below Hayato Hair Salon on Drury road. The show featured 5 jewellery designers, some just recently graduate but all equally talented. Bernice of Macha jewellery was kind enough to invite me to the private view....and after a long day of walking around and big crowds it was nice to enjoy a smaller venue with a glass of wine and stunning jewellery - I mean what more could you ask for. Bernice's label, Macha Jewlery had started while she was living in New York (so jealous) and continued after her return to London and is now stocked in an array of international boutiques, I loved her jewellery is was edgy and rock and roll inspired and beautifully hand finished. Coco Kato's collection was full of fine threads and pearls, delicate little rings, almost whimsical but innovative and wearable. Takafumi had very interesting and innovative designs, especially his intricate double round rings with little glass bubbles in it, I just could not get over the amount of work that would go into making that. Yumeko's feather bracelets were simply stunning and I really really want one, she takes real feathers and curls them in a bracelet shape and dips them in various metals, creating totally one-off, fine and fragile feather bracelets. Akiko's work was also very individual, infact I don't think there was one piece there that was the same as she uses a melting technique to create what can only be described as dark and sinister but attractive and desirable. It was a really inspiring showcase, which is the great thing about boutique style jewellery, it's individual, it's hand-made and it's not factory driven.
