I’m back in the UK for my next brand, the amazing:
Sstutter is one of the most unique acrylic jewellery brands out there. It is the brand of Phil Wykes, who designs and makes each piece. Each design is usually produced in one or more limited-edition colourways.
This beautiful Monarch Butterfly necklace in the Magenta Jewel colourway is definitely going to be my first purchase.
For something a bit more delicate, the Hummingbird, available as either a pendant or a brooch, is ideal. This is the Flowers colourway.
The Owl necklace is available in a number of colourways; this Onyx version reminds me of the owl in Labyrinth.
The animal heads are really popular: I like this Snow White version of the cat necklace.
Finally, this statement Crocodile Necklace is an utter masterpiece. It is available in pink and this Gold Jewel colourway.
Curiology, established in 2010, focuses on Gothic and spooky jewellery made from a variety of materials: plastic, wood, paper and metal. There is a monthly Coven Club with new designs, and regular limited editions alongside the standard range.
The Cemetery Necklace is a staple of mine.
The Cathedral statement necklace is dramatic and detailed.
The Dearly Departed necklace is made from layered acrylic.
These Edgar Allan Poe cameo earrings are perfect for fans of Gothic literature.
This beautiful ‘It’s Only Forever’ sterling silver owl necklace is inspired by Labyrinth.
Designosaur is based in Brighton, and makes jewellery and other fun items inspired by dinosaurs and other fun concepts. The company is run by designers Jacques Keogh and Karli Dendy, and has been in existence since 2012.
George the Chameleon was a joint venture by Designosaur and fellow Brighton brand Hello Dodo. I love him because he goes with everything!
I have one of these dino charm necklaces, and I love it. They are available in several colours.
Recently the brand released a range of dino-themed zodiac jewellery. The dino for Cancer is the ankylosaurus.
It’s not just dinos: this sabre tooth tiger necklace is on my list, mainly because it was the chosen symbol of my favourite Power Ranger.
Today I’m going to write about one of my favourite brands:
Hello Crumpet is run by Claire, originally based in the UK but now located in the Netherlands. Due to its focus on literature and Shakespeare, it’s a brand that I particularly love, and some brooches are even available via the Shakespeare’s Globe shop!
The brand is named after founder Claire’s cat Crumpet, so it seems only natural that a cat brooch is available.
Many brooches are Harry Potter-themed, including this Tales of Beedle the Bard book brooch.
For Easter this year, this gorgeous Lindt-style bunny brooch was available.
Game of Thrones fans will like this “Winter is coming” brooch.
This awesome skull brooch brings to mind the famous quotation, “Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown,” and is available at the Globe shop along with others, including an ‘Exit, pursued by a bear’ brooch!
