Tell us about the bespoke bracelet you’re creating for bloggers at High Street Fashion Week?

I am going to make something new and personalised for the bloggers of HSFW, so that they have an exclusive piece of jewellery for the event.

Why did you want to get involved with this?
I thought it would be a great platform to showcase my designs and network with an exciting group of designers, brands and bloggers.

Who would you say your collection is designed for?
Modern day glamour girls and the modest starlets that lives inside us all.

Where would you like to take your collection next? Then where would you like to be in five years time?
My next collection will be my final uni project so it is inspired by many of the great female icons, the themes is Warrior Princess- Think Beyonce's 'Who Run's the World' music video fused with Cleopatra.

I haven't thought about my 5 year plan as yet, I just need to get through my last 3 months of uni so that
is where all my energy is focused on at the moment.

Has jewellery design always been something you've been interested in?
I started off studying textile design  and stumbled into jewellery making through curiosity.  
Many of the skills cross over which is great and my next collection will hopefully fused my two passions.

Which other jewellery designers have inspired you?
I love Erickson Beamon and Betty Pepper both designers are very inspiring and creative I look forward to seeing new work from them both.  I love going to the Jewellery Show which takes place in June as there are so many great jewellery designers showcasing their work in one space.

Who would you love to see your collection on celebrity wise?
Beyonce, and Rihanna - that would be Phenonmenal. 

How about your personal style, how would you describe it?
My own style is a mix of old and new, I love mixing vintage pieces with high street trends, accessorized with loads of bracelets and non-matching earrings and sunglasses even in winter lol!

If you could only wear one piece of jewellery for the rest of your life, what would it be?
My wedding ring 

Layering jewellery is a hot trend at the moment, what tips do you have for carrying it off stylishly?
Go crazy, wear as much as you can handle and remember that it doesn't have to match.

What jewellery trends would you recommend for Spring/Summer? 

I love the neon trend and I have designeda few new Limited Edtion pieces for my Fairytale Collection,
The Neon Skull Bracelets and Necklace, they are a great injection of colour and will add a pop to any outfit.
