Pieces of 8 – London Jewellery Exhibition & Pop-Up Shop

I’m a bit wary nowadays of the whole pop-up shop concept. Especially now big brands have cottoned onto the idea, often disguising themselves as cool one-off boutiques to get down with the kids But there are still some great ones out there and they do beat the dreary grind of plodding around the often unimaginative High Street.

Pieces of 8 London Jewellery Exhibition & Pop-Up Shop though looks like the genuine article. A group of designer/makers getting together to bring one off artistry to the weary masses. The idea is to bring eight of the best new UK jewellery designers under one roof.

-Jessica de Lotz is a narrative based jeweller, whose intricate pieces evoke memories of times bygone and nostalgia.

-momo creatura offers and evocation of Victorian horror in her macabre yet charming creatures www.momocreatura.com

-Alice Menter creates bold, luxurious and glamorous jewellery with an industrial edge from unexpected objects. www.alicementer.co.uk

-Claire English’s unmistakably English designs are inspired by the narrative potential of the objects that surround us. www.claireenglish.com

-Laura Gravestock creates intricate, feminine jewellery inspired by memories of the diverse archtiecture cultures of the Middle East and rural Spain.

-Cabbege is king is characteristically fantastical, unique and imaginative. www.cabbageisking.com

-Gina Melosi’s jewellery marries cutting-edge, conceptual design with ethical principles & materials. www.lginamelosi.com

Along side the young designers, type write artist Keira Ruthbone will be demonstrating her typing art. www.keirarathbone.com. You’ll have to hurry up though if you want to catch it
