Emerging designer Heidi Bennett's range is a revelation: hand-produced, unconventional and bursting with bold colour. She was one of my top jewellery discoveries of last year, so I was pleased to become one of her first stockists. I've now topped up my Heidi collection with nine new pairs of earrings for Summer 2016.
Every line is made in small batches, and, since the jewellery is stitched and and finished by hand, no two pairs are exactly alike.
Heidi's eclectic range of influences combine to beautiful effect in her work: folk, gypsy, Russian, '60s bohemian and '40s dressing-table-pearl styles can all be found in the collection (sometimes blended together in one pair!)
Since Heidi works alone at every step of the production process, from the initial product sketches to material sourcing to meticulously crafting the pieces, each earring is a showcase for her passion and skill.
