  • 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.

    Dogeared Bracelet at Accessories OnlineWe'll have a few more new arrivals from Dogeared hitting the site this week so keep an eye out.

  • African Sushi - Fiona Paxton AW12

    The AW12 season sees Fiona Paxton take inspiration from African queens and Deco dreams. Hand beaded African patterns are contrasted with sparkling Swarovski crystals and Geometric shapes. With Grace Jones as the muse, her iconic approach to colour and pattern are at the forefront of this collection and can be seen in the use of deep dark colours that are lifted with shots of bright neon stitch and for the first time Fiona Paxton uses glinting coloured diamante stones to give bold structure to her signature fabric necklaces.

    Strong use of colour and pattern create a stunning global blend from a jungle land, a mix of sourced patterned cords, leathers and stones are combined with coco shells, Perspex and neon threads to give a wonderful textural blend to this hand-crafted jewellery. Inspiration was taken from African wax prints and embroidered kimonos to produce a shocking mix of colours. Pretty puce gems are contrasted with acid greens on chunky chain collars whilst burnt orange and tropical turquoises add pop to long beaded necklaces and wrapping cuffs.

    A nod to the season’s biggest trend, clashing monochrome geometric patterns weave their way through the collection whilst bold laser cut metal pendants add a flash of sharp styling to this ethnic inspired collection.

  • AW11 Jewellery Trend: A Walk in the Woods

    For AW11, jewellery has had a call from the wild with woodland stories in a palette of autumn colours such as rich berry coloured burgundies, peacock blues and warm chocolate browns.

The classic Lola Rose heart appears on bracelets, necklaces and stretch rings to tactile tumble bracelets designed for layering.

    Jacey Withers

    'Adornithology' is the name of the new Jacey Withers AW11 collection. It's an enchanting collection of unique handcrafted pieces heavily inspired by the beautiful white barn owl, one of England's most captivating birds. Fascinated by this creature, Jacey has created a delightful story surrounding the life of this bird, the mythology and superstition surrounding it as well as its wildlife companions, some even being its prey. Within the collection we discover adorable, inquisitive mice climbing on necklaces and bracelets. Striking owls sit on chains showing the amazing pattern of their wings.

    We love the bracelet!

Influences are the bronze age, the Kings and Queens of the Celts, Mycenaean culture, hammered metals, matt stones, arrowheads, wrapped wire, draping chains and beaten curved metal discs.? Styles are bold, strong shapes contrasted with areas of refined detailing created by Fiona Paxton in her signature style, mixing metals with leather and beading.

  • 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.

    Dyrberg Kern Beas Necklace in Shiny Gold with Swarovski Crystal, ?64.95

    Dyrberg

    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.

    Dyrberg Kern Zeferina Enamelled Circles Necklace in Black, ?152.95

    Dyrberg

    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.

  • I’ll never be a size 10 or 12? but that’s quite ok with me.

    Guest Postedwina.simone makes jewellery, accessories & homewares & writes.

    Ok, so I’m not a size 10, or even a 12, maybe I’m a 14? sometimes. I even own a pair of skinny jeans that are a size err?. 18. After being, to be fair, quite a bit bigger than I am now, it’s really hard for a girl to know what looks good, feels good & makes you feel amazing.

    Firstly, it’s important to look at your shape, try not to compare yourself to Alexa Chung, Kiera Knighty, or in fact anyone else. (To be fair they’re probably wishing they had curves, more boob, more hips, it’s true? I guarantee it!).

    There is no right or wrong way to wear jewellery, it portrays your individual style, gives you confidence, brightens your day, I love it! Accessories are great fun & open to all. Worn cleverly, they can enhance your favourite parts and even disguise those not so great parts.

    Hot this summer:

    • Tribal & graphic prints
    • Floral Print
    • Khaki, olive & earthy tones
    • Reds, beiges & nude tones
    • Grey, apparently, is the new black for summer 2010

    Some handy tips for clever accessorizing:

    If you’re bigger on the top, try to keep your neckline simple. V necks minimize the chest & shoulders, they also lengthen the neckline. Use chunky bangles to draw the eye down your body & away from your biggest area.

    If you’re smaller on top, use bold & chunky necklaces to draw attention to the neckline & away from the bottom half. Cap & puffed sleeves will balance the top half with the bottom, as will a large neckline, or cowl neck.

    Earrings:

    For the fuller figured frame, geometric styles are the most flattering. Long, chandelier, oblong, square or rectangle earrings will add length to a rounded face. I definitely have one of these! Hair piled up high in a chic pony or a messy tousled bun lengthens the neck.

    Alex Monroe Black Crow Feather Earrings, ?124.95

    Necklaces:

    A longer necklace or pendant will elongate a fuller figure, drawing eyes down the body, adding length to the face.

    Jackie Brazil Mixed Rectangle Necklace, ?59.47

    Bracelets:

    A larger or wider bracelet, cuff or a stack of bangles or bracelets can minimize the hand. They attract attention & guide the eye towards the thinnest part of the arm, the wrist, perfect!

    Aim to wear only one piece of chunky, bold jewellery. For example, team a sack of chunky bangles with a long, fine necklace. Or a pair of long, bold chandelier earrings with a simple, plain ring.

    It is said that jewellery must enhance & not clash with your attire, I for one ignore this rule. Bold, clashing colours & textures, exploring what looks good, can make you feel more fabulous on the days you feel great & amazing on the other days that nothing fits right.

  • Trend: Push the Boat Out - Nautical Jewellery and Accessories

    We're loving this season's nautical trend here at Accessories Online. It's a theme that generally pops up each season, and for SS10 it's the fashion favourite once again. So what do you wear with your breton stripes? Here's our guide on how to accessorize the look. We also have a trend specific nautical jewellery category where we've hand picked our favourites for you.

    Rope look accessories are key this season, making these chunky gold Butler and Wilson rope twist earrings perfect. They're also clip ons, for the piercing-phobics among you:

    Gold jewellery is an essential. Layered gold necklaces look particularly fabulous and set the look off perfectly. Below you can see our Dogeared Unlocked necklaces layered and teamed up with stacked gold bracelets. Chunky gold jewellery is also huge this summer, something that designer Angie Gooderham does particularly well.

    Layered necklaces and stacked gold bangles

    Layered

    How about a starfish to suggest the nautical look without being too obvious? This pretty necklace by Hawaii based designer Catherine Weitzman has been cast from a real starfish:

    And lastly, the obligatory anchor which Tatty Devine have done particularly well this season:

    The key is keeping it simple - don't go overboard, or the look becomes too staged and uniform-like. Pick a few key pieces and team them together to complete the look, but don't exhaust it.

  • 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.

  • London Fashion Week February 2010

    I was at London Fashion Week yesterday to place orders for our autumn/winter 2010 collections (I still can't get used to writing '2010', maybe I'll be used to it by the end of the year?). It was another typically hectic day that kicked off with my first appointment at Butler & Wilson. I love placing orders with B&W.? Everything is so sparkly and tempting - if I wasn't careful then the magpie in me would be buying everything in the shop. This season they've got some really outstanding items including jewelled goldfish cuffs, graduated crystal earrings and some ornate bridal headdresses. We'll have these items online in the next few months so keep an eye out for them. While I was there I treated myself to a rather sparkly, rather beautiful and rather expensive iPhone cover...you can see a photo of it here. I'm feeling a little guilty about buying it now...but it's so pretty and sparkly...

    Inside Butler & Wilson's South Molton St shop

    Inside

    After my 'shopping spree' in B&W I was in a cab heading over to LFW at Somerset House. Why they continue to use this venue I do not know - it's an impressive venue, but it's terrible to walk around as a buyer, because the designers are hidden away in various nooks and crannies of the building which covers quite a large area. Trying to find them all must have added at least half an hour to my visit which isn't great when you're on a tight schedule. Bring back LFW at the Natural History Museum.? When I'd finally found where to register and woven my way through a few corridors I found the stand for one of our favourite designers Alex Monroe.

    Alex's new collection is entitled "The Peacock and the Crow". This new collection comprises of detailed gold plated peacock feathers with semi precious gems? and stunning Ruthenium plated crow feathers that have an almost iridescent sheen to them (think of the colours you can see in a black magpie feather). We'll have this collection in June - I think I'll be treating myself to one of the feather necklaces when it arrives.

    Then it was on to the Tatty Devine stand where I placed an order from their autumn/winter collection "The age of the blazing trails". Tatty Devine turn ten this year, and they're taking inspiration from women who set the world alight. Unfortunately I can't share photographs of the new collection with you just yet, but I can tell you to expect pieces comprising of pearls and crystals, pocket watches and some bright colourful pieces too. This collection should be arriving in late August. Photos will be posted on our Facebook page as soon as we can share them with you.

    I then went to see the hugely talented Fiona Paxton who had very kindly managed to grab me a much needed glass of champagne (this job does sometimes have its perks). For AW10, Fiona has created a collection entited "Four-Sided Constellation" with some detailed statement necklaces and cuffs with geometric patterning. My favourite was the drape necklace you can see in the top right of the photo below.

    Fiona

    A new designer that we'll be introducing to the site for autumn is the very lovely Jacey Withers. I've been admiring Jacey's designs from afar for a while now, so I couldn't resist placing an order. I love the new treasure chest locket we'll be stocking - it's a little chest that opens and spills out treasure. There are also some beautifully detailed raccoon pieces too - see the photos below for a sneak preview.

    Jacey Withers

    The

    My final stop at LFW was Lola Rose. The AW10 collection has a beautiful collection of new stones and some fantastic new styles. I loved their new longer beaded necklaces and have ordered some for autumn - expect long necklaces with simple strands of beads, some faceted heart necklaces in a brand new shape and chunky rings.

    I'd now finished at LFW, but I still had one more appointment at the May Fair Hotel to keep. I was pretty much dead on my feet at this point, having drunk only champagne and water since breakfast (not as glamorous as it sounds when your head is spinning), so it was great to sit down and relax while I ordered some new pieces from two brand new designers Lenora Dame and Kirstin Ash.

    Lenora Dame is an American designer who creates jewellery pieces with combinations of old and new materials, wood, glass, textiles, found objects, lucite, paper and twine. Her eclectic creations have been worn by celebrities including Katie Perry and America Ferrera. Here's a little preview of things to come:

    Lenora Dame Alphabet Bracelet

    Lenora

    If you love all things birdy then you'll love our second new designer Kirstin Ash. Her jewellery is handmade in Sydney, Australia. Antique finishes, quirky animals and playful silhouettes form her signature style. Each collection has a story of its own but draws from a common inspiration of vintage curios, ordinary and obscure objects, children's books and Paris. Again, here's a little taster:

    Kirstin Ash Hummingbird Pendant

    Kirstin

    We will keep you updated as to when these two new designers will be arriving, so keep an eye on the blog.

    A little exhausted, I headed back to Euston to catch the 7pm train back to Liverpool. The end of a long but exciting day!
