LONDON-BASED ART DIRECTOR
Explore the mesmerising world of jewellery and the inspiring women that wear them.
From sentimental keepsakes to statement jewels, every piece tells a story.
I wear mostly yellow gold, which flatters my skin tone. I absolutely treasure my Tom Ford gold snake bracelet that was a birthday present from one of my dearest friends – it’s from the designer’s menswear collection, and I love integrating androgyny into my style.
Almost a part of my daily uniform, I wear Sophie Lis Fallen Moon diamond encrusted gold studs. Its symbolism of emotional and spiritual growth, journeys and illumination adds a little magic to my everyday.
As a freelance creative, my days vary between catch-ups, hot desking and photoshoots, so I dress with a sense of insouciant ease. My favourite pieces would easily accessorise a plain Joseph T-shirt, tailored Stella McCartney blazer and leather leggings or ripped Rag & Bone skinny denim jeans, paired with Fury London python booties.
I love the Rapport medium blue jewellery box, which has enough compartments to store my go-to pieces, and the perfect size to just pack away in a suitcase for quick trips away.
I like supporting new designers, and Sophie Lis is a brand that is gaining attention with beautiful pieces inspired by cosmic constellations.
Shaun Leane is an all-time favourite, with his signature sculptural pieces that fuses craftsmanship with fashion.
When I turned 18, my godmother gifted me a delicate yet solid 22-ct yellow gold bracelet, its unique design emulating a series of linked coins with auspicious symbolism, and imparted me with her point of view about the value of timeless quality in the jewellery a woman wears.
I covet everything by Repossi, and have on my wish list the version of their iconic Berbere rose gold ring, which sits along the entire length of the finger, each circular row glittering with diamonds.
