Lily Gardner designs unusual but very wearable jewellery, mixing contemporary and traditional materials.
For modern romantics, Lily’s lace-in-Perspex pieces are a must. Her couture lace jewellery collection has already become a classic. It’s fashioned from transparent Perspex and black Chantilly lace – still woven on the original 19th century loom in Northern France. The lace is hand-finished halfway through the weaving as evidenced by tiny knots that outline the flower designs in the material.
The use of Perspex is as innovative as it is ingenious as it has the clarity of glass without the weight. There are over 100 items of lace-in-Perspex jewellery ranging from smaller pieces (pendants, earrings and bangles) to statement floral lace cuffs and our striking Lace as Precious Stone necklaces and rings.
For day wear, there is a range finished with suede cord to complete a more casual outfit. For something a little dressier, sparkling Swarovski crystal jet beads form the necklace.
Our Jewellery Collection was cited by Vogue as a ‘must have’ and made its big store debuts in the famous Colette of Paris, the V&A, and Harrods in London. Lily also designs Swarovski Crystal Pearl Bead jewellery, including filigree capped pieces. We have crystal pearl earrings, necklaces and bracelets which are perfect if you love pearls but want something a little less traditional. The crystal pearl bow necklace and bracelet sets are understated favourites that look great day and night. The whole crystal pearl bead jewellery collection is unsurprisingly popular for weddings, both for brides and bridesmaid presents.
Our new limited edition multistrand semi-precious necklaces are wonderful for filling a neckline – very 1940s. Available in the colours of Oriental silks, neutral matt black lava, and black and grey dyed agates, all are knotted and fall beautifully. Elegant enough for work and after.
