  • Hot New Bracelets from Dogeared

    We've completely in love with our latest Dogeared jewellery arrivals - these gorgeous make a wish bracelets on chain. Set on chunky rolo chain bracelets, they have handy extender chains so you can wear them at the perfect length. They're available in silver and gold dipped versions. If you're looking for a meaningful gift then you really can't go wrong with these sweet new Dogeared bracelets.

    This is the 'All is Well' bracelet by Dogeared with a hamsa hand charm. It should be worn as a reminder that things are just fine. Hamsa hands are said to offer protection to the wearer. I'd give this a gift to somebody who needed a little reassurance in their life.

    Dogeared Bracelets at AccessoriesOnline.co.ukI love the infinity bracelet below. Featuring the iconic infinity charm, it's on a substantial chain bracelet (perfect for clumsy oafs like myself). Infinity jewellery is still a huge jewellery trend at the moment so not only is this a meaningful bracelet, but it's the height of fashion too.

  • Dyrberg/Kern - New SS11 Jewellery Collection

    Just in is the new SS11 jewellery collection by Danish designers Dyrberg/Kern. Exotic temptress and seductress, the Femme Fatale has been a source of fascination for centuries. She’s portrayed as a woman who uses her femininity and powers of persuasion to enchant a man, leaving him hypnotised by her beauty. This Spring/Summer 2011, Dyrberg/Kern invites you to tune into the Femme Fatale secretly waiting to unfold. In the Femme Fatale collection we are featuring three new lines: FLAMENCO, CHANSON and ESSENCE.

    CHANSON - Affairs of the Heart

    Derived from the French word for song, CHANSON resonates with romance. Like the sweet lyrics to a love song. It celebrates the seductive, flirtatious side of you with a sneak peak into a woman’s boudoir transposed into jewellery. Including a luscious line of embossed corset closure details inspired by French lingerie. The teardrop motif is a reoccurring theme in golden and silver metal pendants. The classic pearl is contemporised in soft, muted colours like turquoise, dove grey and champagne.

    FLAMENCO ? Fiery and Fabulous!

    An exciting dance explosive with percussive passion, FLAMENCO ignites the fiery Latin spirit in all of us. Like the rhythmic, staccato clicks of the Flamenco dancer’s heels, dots form a mesmerising pattern of concentric circles. Meanwhile, roses add romance and intrigue, expressed in a graphic image of iconic allure. Inspired by the mystery and emotion of this cultural tradition imbued with Andalusian influences, now’s your chance to tap into the Gypsy Queen in you, wearing this season’s colours. Simple styles in bright colours make a strong statement, mixing multi-stoned, multi-tonal combi- nations to match your sexiest mood.

    ESSENCE ? Universal Elegance

    Originating from the Latin word essentia meaning 'being', our ESSENCE line explores circular shapes in a sleek, extremely streamlined style. The circle is an ancient, universal symbol of unity, wholeness and infinity, associated with the female force, power and spirit. Indulge in an intermingling of sizes, shapes and dimensions when open circle outlines and spheres mix. ESSENCE celebrates the simplicity and symmetry of the circle in a vast array of expressions, including round beads and circular outlines. Embracing the universal meaning of continuity and completion ? with a slight ethnic angle, seen in shiny gold and silver metals in smooth domes surfaces. Adding instant impact are bigger silver or gold coloured spheres as striking signature rings in a high polish shine.

  • Fiona Paxton Jewellery Hits Hollywood

    Fiona Paxton: Worn by the likes of Drew Barrymore, Isla Fisher and Lily Allen, the designer’s statement jewellery is rapidly becoming a global phenomenon.

    Fiona Paxton Sylvie Necklace in Bright Gold, new for AW10

    Fiona

    Fiona Paxton’s jewellery has been inspired by years spent travelling around the world. ?It’s got a really modern, ethnic edge and it’s very diverse in terms of styling,’ says fashion stylist Sara Hassan, who worked on Paxton’s spring/summer 2010 promotional campaign. ?It can be worn day or evening so it’s very multifunctional.’

    Paxton, 42, fell into the jewellery world by accident. ?I planned to do a scarf collection but once I started sketching, it turned into a necklace,’ she laughs. The London-based designer grew up in rural Lincolnshire, moved to the city to study at the Royal College of Art and graduated in 1992 with a distinction in textile design. After working in consultancy for Michiko Koshino and then in a New York textile design studio producing prints for Armani, Chlo? and Moschino, she set up her eponymous label in 2008.

    Today, Fiona Paxton prefers to stay at home with her two children, using contacts collected on her travels to help create a stunning range of accessories. Hand-beaded in India, each necklace takes about six hours to make, with leatherwork and metalwork finished off in Britain. Her work has a strong punk aesthetic and is inspired by street style and music. ?I was a bit young to be a punk but it certainly had an influence,’ she says. ?I grew up in the countryside and art college just opened up another world. I think the music, the graphics and designers like Judy Blame and early John Galliano had a huge impact, and that spirit has always stayed with me.’

    In keeping with the rock’n’roll theme, the styling of the spring/summer 2010 photoshoot is edgy yet glamorous. Paxton may have a designer-clad, A-list following but her rebellious attitude offers a fresh take on the trend for super-sized accessories.

    So what’s next? For autumn/winter 2010, Paxton’s trademark beading technique has been given a futuristic feel, with brighter metals and Swarovski crystals lending a dazzling collection extra sparkle. The publicity-shy designer is considering adding chunky cocktail rings to her mainline range of necklaces, earrings and cuffs, while a more delicate collection crafted from precious metals is on the cards. There’s even talk of a return to the original plan, designing printed and beaded scarves. ?I’d like to think I’ll get there in the end,’ adds Paxton. ?It’s taken me a while but this seems like a good time to revisit my scarf idea.’

    No doubt this addition to the range? will be as sought-after as her necklaces. ?Fiona is a real perfectionist and she has such vision for her brand,’ says Hassan. ?She knows what she wants and not only is she creative, she is a true artist too. It’s great to watch someone like this grow in a very difficult industry to crack.’

    Finally, there’s the Cheryl Cole factor. The style icon du jour (pictured in a Paxton bracelet) has borrowed lots of pieces from the spring collection so expect the Fiona Paxton brand to exit the Earth’s atmosphere sometime soon.

  • New Tom Binns for Disney Couture Pieces Just In

    We've just had a delivery from the Tom Binns for Disney Couture collection. They're the Red Queen themed pieces that for us are some of the most outstanding pieces in the Alice in Wonderland collection. Tom Binns tells us in this video that the Red Queen was one of his favourite characters from the film because she was a "dark" character. They feature lots of red resin hearts mixed with twisted chains and Binns' signature safety pins. The hearts appear to smother whatever is underneath them. Stunning.

  • Key Jewellery - Unlocking a Trend for SS10

    Keys are set to be a big trend for spring/summer 2010. The key is said to be a symbol of opening and closing powers and they're seen to represent knowledge, mystery, initiation, and curiosity.

    Symbolism aside, keys create timeless jewellery pieces that transcend the seasons. Layer them up for a quirky twist, or wear a singular key pendant for a classic, more refined look.

    Some of our designers have taken this 'key' concept and created some beautiful examples of key jewellery. Here are some of our favourites:

    Alex Monroe Key Necklace

    Alex

    Alex Monroe has introduced a key necklace to his collection for spring 2010. This pretty, dainty key has vintage styling and clover and heart detailing. It looks great worn alone, or layered with other necklaces from his Gardener collection.

    Tom Binns Alice in Wonderland Key Necklace

    Tom

    This eclectic design from Tom Binns comes from his Alice in Wonderland collection for Disney. A cluster of vintage keys in mixed metals hangs from the iconic Alice in Wonderland keyhole.

    Dogeared Unlocked Peace Key Necklace

    Dogeared

    Dogeared have also run with the 'key' theme and created a new 'Unlocked' collection for spring 2010. This collection comprises of keys in gold and silver plate on chain or leather. A great collection for layering, as the leather necklaces allow you to adjust the length of your necklaces for a tiered look.

    Tom Binns Alice in Wonderland Key Brooch

    Tom

    This keyhole brooch is from Tom Binns' Alice in Wonderland collection for Disney. The Alice in Wonderland Keyhole features once again, and is filled with famous symbols from the Lewis Carroll book. A great piece for lovers of detail and one of our favourites.
