Melissa Curry’s lucite, ribbon and rubber statement pieces were my pick of what’s rolling out onto the Coldlilies website over the next wee while, but that’s just part of the story.
There’s this little lot too.
I’ve fallen for the work of Sonal Talgeri-Bhaskaran big time. Bright, ethnic with a twist (never thought I’d find myself typing that), this stuff is lovely. Anna Byers is one the site has been stocking for a while; her lucite cuffs are overlaid with Pierre Hardy-esque silver and gold grids.
Kat & Bee’s not my thing at all but the wire and bead rings are undeniably pretty.
Charlotte Valkeniers’ pieces are intriguing. Hard-edged and unapologetic, her use of stones feminises them. Lovely stuff altogether. Definitely my favourite of this quad, though there is a lot on offer on the site for fans of the delicate, layered chain, the small statement piece and narrative jewel.
Another striking Sonal Talgeri-Bhaskaran piece, along with a standout Melissa Curry new season necklace. Chupi features extensively as well. Her great appeal I think is the ease-of-wear of her delicate pieces and the affordable price-point.
Those earrings Will. Be. Mine. Irish gemologist and journalist Natasha Sherling has an eponymous collection with Coldlilies this season and it’s definitely one for fans of pretty, delicate pieces, like these two teeny hearts.
My last pick is Muireann Walshe, who I’ve had my eye on since she won a Crafts Council Award for her incredible anodized aluminium re-workings of the Tara Brooch a few years ago. These pieces see her moving on again, and owe a nod to 80s pop art from what I can see. I look forward to what she does next.
Check out Coldlilies for lots more newness – this is just a selection of what was shown so there’s a lot more goodness to discover.
