  • An Interview with Nicola Gewirtz

    We caught up with Nicola Gewirtz, creator and designer of Lola Rose jewellery to ask her a few questions...

    Nicola GewirtzWhat was it that made you become a jewellery designer?

    I had a job as a PA (not a very good one though) and was looking for a new career. A friend bought me a bracelet for my birthday, I loved it but thought I could make something better myself, so I bought some semi precious beads and cord and started stringing it all together! That was 10 years ago now.

    What inspires you when you create new pieces?

    Travel, museums and galleries but most of all my customers who give me amazing feedback. I want to make jewellery that makes women feel good about themselves.

    What’s your favourite item of Lola Rose jewellery?

    My tumble bracelets (Alfie and Cassidy) as these are the first items I designed and are still going strong.

    What pieces do you wear yourself?

    I’m not super organsised so tend to throw something on that I pick up quickly from the dressing table when rushing out of the house. I do always have a Lola Rose ring on and practically live in one of our gorgeous scarves.

    Who is a typical customer?

    Lola Rose customers tend to be stylish, independent women who like to have fun and experiment with bold, colourful pieces of jewellery.

    Sonia Ring in Dark Teal Quartzite

    Sonia

    What’s been your proudest moment?

    On a non work note it has to be the birth of my gorgeous son Freddie!

    What’s your favourite film?

    Lion King ? makes me cry every time!

    Food?

    Sushi.

    Where’s your favourite place in the world?

    In the bathroom at bathtime with Freddie!

    If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take with you?

    A really good moisturizer, family photos and some string so if I got bored I could continue to make jewellery with shells I’ve found on the beach!

  • 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...

    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.

    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.

    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:

    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:

    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!
