See beautiful designs by LJS tutors at the Desire Fair
At London Jewellery School we’re very lucky to have wonderful independent jewellers as tutors for our classes.
Now there is a chance to see some of their own work at the Desire Fair in London’s Kensington Conference Centre on 15 to 17 March.
Five tutors will be exhibiting some of their work on our stand at the show giving visitors a chance to see their beautiful pieces close up and find out about buying or ordering their jewellery.
The designers with work on show will be:
Hayley’s jewellery is bold, vibrant and striking and reveals her love of colour developed through her South African childhood.
She says her pieces “are for those moments when a woman needs to be
remembered such as an important meeting, a sizzling date, a beach party in Ibiza or
St Tropez, or for when she needs a ‘pick-me-up’, just like a pair of killer heels”.
Sima’s handmade jewellery is inspired by Persian, Afghan and Arabic art, calligraphy, architecture & textures and is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional which can be worn comfortably and with confidence, whatever the occasion.
With her work, Sima hopes to encourage positive feelings towards the region and to promote its ancient hidden beauty, culture and heart.
This pendant, inspired by the motifs found on Persian carpets, feature Sima’s own calligraphy.
Inspired by minute details in the world around her, Rebecca creates unique pieces handcrafted in gold, silver and precious stones.
She says that she loves working with the luxurious materials and the idea of creating tiny treasures.
Rosie Sanders specialises in neoclassical couture for today’s urban dames. Her collections explores the significance of scrolls as iconic decorative motifs and as enduring mythological symbols of opulence and feminine power. From scroll medallions to neoclassical knuckledusters, Rosie creates subversive statement pieces as well as tiny trinkets to enjoy everyday.
Made from sterling silver and 18 carat gold vermeil including enamel and semi precious stones, Rosie’s work mixes classical and urban influences that reflect her London upbringing combined with her background in fine art and anthropology.
At the Desire Fair on Saturday 16 March, Rosie will be wearing pieces from her new gold vermeil enamel collection, ‘Renaissance Rebel’, as living mannequin/designer/maker. Rosie will be on the LJS stand all day so it is a fantastic opportunity to meet a designer and see a collection being worn.
Natasha creates upcycled costume jewellery sold in London and Paris.
She has made jewellery for Paloma Faith and Shingai Shoniwa (Noisettes).
And her pieces have featured in several music videos and magazines.
Also at the Desire Fair we will be offering jewellery making workshops for the bargain price of £10 – find out all the details here.
