Elegance with Edge

on Sunday, 15 July 2012. Posted in Trends, Fashion

Greek mythology is the inspiration behind the up-and-coming Katie Rowland's latest jewellery range.

With celebrity fans including Lady Gaga, Cheryl Cole and Daisy Lowe, Manchester-born Katie has already achieved high acclaim for her luxury pieces, featuring gold, silver and precious stones.

The 31-year-old was crowned UK New Designer of the Year at last year's UK Jewellery Awards and chosen to exhibit her autumn/winter 2012 collection at London Fashion Week. Katie says her jewellery is "for women who know what they want and know how to get it" and uses powerful female characters from history and myth to inspire her designs.

Katie Rowland AW12 Circe Collection

She implemented the story behind the enchantress Circe, a minor goddess of magic in Greek mythology, in her latest work. Circe was a flame-headed seductress, renowned for turning those who spurned her affections into the animals she felt they deserved to be.£ London-based Katie has taken the cat-like claws from Circe's beasts and fused the sharp edges with precious stones. Circe poisoned her victims to whisk them off into a hallucinatory world, so Katie used the smoky colours of the enchantress' lethal potion alongside a warm palette of yellow and gold.

From Ear to Ear

One of the first ever videos I filmed for The ‘It’ Guide showcased my jewellery collection. Featuring a vast array of necklaces, rings and bracelets there was only one thing lacking – I didn’t include any earrings. Not because I don’t have my ears pierced or because I don’t own any earrings – I have more than 30 pairs of earrings and at one time had 8 piercings in my ears (teenage-angst years). It wasn’t a conscious decision not to include any earrings, more of an oversight and probably caused by my obsession with statement jewellery and my lack of anything resembling a statement earring.

Anton Heunis SS12 Collection

Those of you, who have read my previous blog posts, seen any of my videos or followed me on Twitter (@theitguide), will know I have a penchant for Anton Heunis jewellery. This particular fixation began when the lovely gals at my-wardrobe.com lent me an Anton Heunis necklace to wear during London Fashion Week in February last year. Since then I’ve gone on to buy two of his pieces; a necklace (http://instagr.am/p/KlUxm/) and a ring (http://instagr.am/p/PlX6D/). I considered this to be fairly restrained as I was sorely tempted to buy the entire collection!

I’d Rather Wear a Unique Story

As someone who doesn’t tend to be very bold with their choice of clothing, the option to accessorise an outfit is essential. So imagine my delight when the lovely girls at Boticca asked me to browse their site and put together a selection of my favourite products.
