I read something on The Spike last week about a jewellery designer called Phoebe Coleman. I’m not familiar with her stuff (and, to be honest, I’m not about to become familiar with it – I have enough). However, some of it reminds me of Rust, which is based in the Isle of Wight and is very pretty.
I have cropped the photo above because I look so appalling in it, I don’t do justice to the earrings. I’m not especially vain but there are limits.
I do have rather a sense of guilt about Rust. AGES ago, I went in to ask about one of her pendants and whether they do 18 inch long chains (I have a bull neck). She got an 18 inch chain in, emailed me about it and I completely forgot to go in. In my defence, it was immediately before Christmas. Even so, I am quite embarrassed. I am usually more considerate than that.
