I discovered some great new jewellery designers at the Renegade Craft Fair on the 8-9th October 2011. Meet Esoterica Bazaar, Uncommonly Beautiful, The Weekend Store and Foamy Wader.

Now for my final Renegade Craft Fair blog post: the best of the jewellery.

I totally and utterly fell in love with jewellery made by Caroline of Esoterica Bazaar, pharm who is based in Los Angeles. Her bold rings were displayed like gorgeous sweeties, what is ed and thus utterly irresistible to little ol’ me. She sources rare and unusual gems such as veined Ammolite, erectile aurora borealis enhanced Labradorite and many faceted crystal Pyrite (also known as Fool’s Gold).

It’s great news that there are now plenty of people upcycling vintage jewellery parts to create new pieces, but London based Kirsty Kirkpatrick of Uncommonly Beautiful stands out for her clever use of jewellery parts and unusual combinations of pieces: she uses bits of furniture, scrap leather and even broken suitcases in her designs. I also likes the way that she describes herself as anti-landfill, challenging preconceptions of waste.

Adjowah Brodie of the US based The Weekend Store specialises in upcycled parts as well. My eye was particularly drawn to unique necklaces, cufflinks and rings made from old typewriter keys.

Alexa Allamano of Seattle had travelled a long way to show her Foamy Wader jewellery collection. Her delicate pieces were beautifully displayed with miniature animals, and according to her website she also specialises in knitted beards. As you do.

Until next year Renegade Craft Fair! Don’t forget that if you are based in the US you can find their events all year round.
