“My new jewellery collection with Daisy London is the jewellery collection I’ve always wanted to design”
I’ve been wearing Daisy London’s jewellery for such a long time, their Chakra collection caught my eye instantly, so the chance to be able to work with them was amazing. Jewellery, to me, is something that is so expressive so I really wanted people to be able to do that with my collection and there’s something for everyone in it.
It’s a lot of heirloom and vintage-inspired pieces with a modern touch. I wanted to incorporate the idea of jewellery that has been handed down to you and means something really special.
I look to my jewellery as a bit of a comfort blanket almost – my mum gave me a necklace when I moved to the UK from Canada and whenever I get homesick, I hold the necklace and think of my family. I wanted my jewellery to be super comforting and tactile. I also wanted to convey feelings of strength and power and just generally making you feel good.
My top three styling tips for Autumn
Style tip number 1 is mixing metals. I’m really into mixing silvers and golds together at the moment – especially since doing this jewellery collection. I haven’t been able to pick just one colour so mixing them has been big.
Style tip number 2 is something that I’m really big on – big outerwear. So like a huge fluffy coat or a big oversized wool coat. That’s always such a staple for me in autumn. They’re great as you can put them over anything.
Which brings me on to style tip number 3 – athleisure. Any excuse to wear fitness clothes works for me and I love mixing athleisure with more fashionable items like the statement wool coat I mentioned earlier. I love to put on trainers, yoga pants, a really cool knit and then a big coat plus all my jewellery of course! You can really dress up athleisure so I’m really into that.
