My favourite bits of jewellery at Somerset House for S/S 2011: Tatty Devine (of course), ethical designers LeJu, Mawi, Phillippa Holland and newcomers Phoebe Coleman and Cabinet 4 Buba.

I'm a girl. I quite like jewellery, I can't help it. Here's my round up of the sweetest pieces I saw at Somerset House this year.
Phoebe Coleman was new to LFW this year, evident in her slightly small simple stand and eager demeanour. But that's no bad thing! Rather that than some shirty designer who barks at me if I take a photo. It's understandable that some people get narked what with lots of pesky manufacturers sneaking in to nick their ideas, but I'm only too happy to share my business card so a bit of decorum is always good. Anyway, like I said Phoebe was lovely and chatty. Her first degree was in fine art and she then went onto study jewellery in San Diego, California whilst also producing plays. She's a big old romantic, so alongside her previous dewdrop collection she has just launched the most darling heart collection at LFW. I love big brash jewellery for making a bit of a noise, but for day to day wear you can't beat simple gold pendants. So want one. What's more she's determined to support local jewellers so everything is made in London.
