Watch out world, because designer Dominic Jones is going to blow you away! Since he launched his debut collection in Spring of 2009, his “pink-chic” jewelry has has seriously taken over! This London-based designer has beautifully crafted “nature-inspired pieces.” And don’t take just my word for it! American Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has highly praised this designer on the rise and his work is admired by names such as Alexa Chung (contributing editor of Bitish Vogue) and Sienna Miller (English actress, model & fashion designer.)
So what made his jewelry stand out to me? First: oversized rings & necklaces (my total craze at the current moment)! Second: they’re inspired by insects and reptiles (who does that?!).
So this three-time British Fashion Council NEWGEN award winner stated to the press, “When I started the line a year ago, my friends were completely interested in fashion but not jewelry—because no one could afford it. I like to use the same skills that are applied to couture but do it in metals so it’s more accessible.”
Jones studied jewelry design at the Sir John Cass School of Art and Design, which has major art-world connections with the likes of the Serpentine gallery. He uses resin casts of alligator jaws and stag beetles that Jones translates into brass and gold plating! Talk about being creative!
