Spring has finally hit. The sun is warming the earth, bulbs are emerging, days are longer and evenings lighter. It’s time to make a fresh start with your wardrobe too, so we’ve been thinking about how we’re going to wear jewellery this spring.
Take your lead from the daffodil, the quintessential spring flower, and follow the yellow fever trend. Our favourite Arlette Gold pieces that have a nod to the colour are Patricia Nicolas’ laser-cut, acrylic, canary-yellow daisy ring or, if you’re after something a little more subtle, Materia Rica’s hand-painted, walnut, art deco, lemon Eventail studs, both handmade in Spain. Or add a pop of vibrant sunshine with One We Made Earlier’s Ad necklace, which contrasts a hot yellow ball against speckled black corian, and is handmade in London.
Swallows are a welcome sign of spring in the UK, returning here in April after spending the winter in South Africa. Celebrate with Roz Beuhrlen’s swallow statement ring, or her more understated pendant necklace, in gold or silver. Handmade in Kent.
Fresh for spring, ditsy florals are budding and bursting all over the catwalk. Find a wearable take on the trend in our horticulturally inspired jewellery. Wolf and Moon’s pretty bloom-bud studs and necklace are inspired by vintage flower patterns and are perfect for spring. Available in teal or peach. Or, if you’re ready for 70s florals, their petal-powered statement wallpaper ring or necklace is bound to turn heads. Both handmade in London.
And for the children
Spring means bunny time! Zana Zelephant’s Miffy rabbit bow necklace in an unusual mustard colour is lightweight and easy to wear, and is made in South Korea. For girls with pierced ears we love Brainbow’s cute, laser-cut wooden rabbit earrings, each endearingly different and handmade in Australia.
For those who think bunnies are no longer cool (crazy, we know!), how about nodding to spring with Bitte and Danke’s flitter-flutter tassel necklaces and earrings in a range of colours for both 4-10 year olds and 10+. Handmade in Berlin.
