IJL 2013: VANILLA INK (PART 2)
Time to meet the rest of the Inkers from Vanilla Ink.
(N:B If you are yet to meet the first set of designers from Vanilla Ink, you can check them out here)
Fine threads of silver are intricately weaved by the fair hands of The Wee Robin to create 3D baskets of wonder.
Robin has also put his nimble fingers to the test by creating a range of ickle teeny weenie jewels; including mini moustaches, top hats and bow ties. He also makes a rockin double finger ring which mimics the wings of a bird.
It might be because I like shiny things but I defy anyone who is not hypnotised by the beauty of Scarlett Erskine’s rings and in fact her whole collection.
Taking ‘the skin’ as her inspirational bounce pad, Erskine plays with the notion of texture and skins cells in her designs. Her jewellery is then injected with colour by the addition of sparkling precious gemstones.
Clean, simple and stunning. Leanne T Evans proves that you don’t have to shout to make a statement. Her subtle silver designs with their bold strong lines capture your attention and are perfect for a woman who wants her jewellery to be fuss free but WOW at the same time.
Garden Party glamour Audrey Reid’s botanical collection has emerged from her love of Victorian glasshouses. Her designs not only incorporate the frameworks of the Victorian stained glass windows but also the imagery of the plants that are encased within the glasshouses.
Skeletor chic, rustic rocks and twisted grimy gothic glamour are all words synonymous with Victoria Kelsey’s luxury hand made jewels. If you’re looking for jewellery which errs on the side of dark, dangerous and dam right HOT then Victoria Kelsey is your girl. Her lava rock bracelet is going straight to the top of my wish list. It will un-sweeten my winter florals and a touch of bad ass to the cosy oversized jumpers I’ll be rockin’ from now until next summer.
