+make a statement+

I found this amazing site, boticca that helps out independent designers and each piece is so unique that you're bound to get attention wherever you go. I've just picked 3 favourites so far as i'm going to need some more time to peruse this little treasure chest.

Eina Ahluwalia is known as "India’s first Conceptual Jewellery Artist, creating jewellery from her soul". Each piece is handcrafted by master craftsmen in Kolkata to keep alive skills that have been passed down generations, but are being lost to mass production. trained under the pioneering conceptual jeweler Ruudt Peters in Holland, and studied at Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence, Italy, where she now acts as India Advisor. She was nominated for ‘Best Jewellery Designer’ by Marie Claire India, two years in a row, and David Lamb- MD, Jewellery at World Gold Council has picked her as one of the hottest talents to watch out for.

The parrot earrings are made by designer Noémie Vaillancourt from Canada. She fell in love with feathers and is using it to expand her inspiration and hopefully a full line of jewellery, accessories and clothing. She's currently studying tailoring and sewing. 

The earrings below come from the Sarah Angold Studio, London, which is a team of design graduates collaborating with their various specialisms from electronics to fine art and theatre. Sarah Angold launched her A/W11 collection at London Fashion Week in February and was featured in British Vogue's 'Fashion's New Generation' as one of its top 25 emerging creatives.  The studio work on all kinds of projects, from installations in the Design Museum and Selfridges windows to designing concept cars for Toyota.
