This year the One Year On section of New Designers was curated by Luna & Curious co-founder Rheanna Lingham (read my exclusive interview here). I particularly loved the selection of jewellery designers at part one (this is just a small selection) but have included my finds at part two of One Year On in this write up as well. All of these designers are actively creating and selling their products so do visit their websites and get in on the action too….
The new Woven on Stone collection from Julia Toledo (top) features gemstones combined with pure silk details. Spectacular and different.
I loved the tactile nature of these granulated silver pendants by Hannah Grace Ryan.
Super delicate, intricate and beautiful. This titanium necklace is by Karen Elizabeth Donovan.
Bold rings by Flora Bhattachary make a big statement.
Mei-Ling de Buitlear pearl earring hoops are beautiful simplicity.
Hand pleated neck cuffs by Hayley Beckley offer an alternative take on statement necklaces.
Moving on to surface design, Rachel Froud obviously had fun making vegetable artwork into tablemats!
This unusual print is by Harriet Popham, who was inspired by her local landscape in Somerset.
Subtle illustrations by Augusta Ackerman were translated into textiles.
This tiny blue mouse by Perished Pets offers a unique take on ethical taxidermy (she uses roadkill).
Leah Jensen creates narrative scenes on porcelain to create unusual vessels.
Jungle fabrics by Righteous Raven feature lush colours and bold leaf designs.
These amazing glass brains by Charlotte Wilkinson were inspired by her father’s illness. Such a wonderful way to channel creativity.
So Klara textiles feature bold colourful splashes, a major interior design statement.
This neon lasercut acrylic chess set is by Vive Designs.
All of these images first appeared on the New Designers instagram feed (they very kindly asked me to guest post a favourite selection from both part one and part two of the show) or on my own my instagram feed: follow me there to catch my discoveries as I make them!
