I was delighted to know that my jewellery, stylishly worn by writer and lyricist Lucia Wilson*,made its way up the red carpet in fine company – Dame Judi Dench to the left, Zoe Wanamaker CBE to the right and the vibrant pink-haired wonder that is Cyndi Lauper, shining in the evening sunlight, at the Olivier Awards 2016 at the Royal Opera House!

It was a splendid evening by all reports and a truly star-strewn occasion. I am so thrilled that my designs could add a little sparkle of their very own!

Also attending the Awards were some of my favourite actresses in very desirable dresses and jewellery. Laura Carmichael, a far remove from her Downton Abbey persona, wearing floral Erdem and beautiful drop earrings. Gemma Arterton, so striking in an Amethst purple sequinned dress by Jenny Packham and sparkling drop earrings by de Grisogno. Jessie Buckley far from ‘War and Peace’, auburn-haired in an elegant foliage gown by Temperley London and what look like decorative vintage earrings, wonderful!

So good to know that even if I wasn’t present at this special event my earrings were, beautifully worn on the very pretty ears of Lucia Wilson.

If you are looking for a subtle sparkle in a drop earring these designs from the Flowers section in my Modern Collection would make a perfect choice!
