This is just a quick post - but I have to write about Daisy Knights, because I've totally fallen for her designs. Daisy, a young British jewellery designer who trained at Central St Martin's, creates organic yet playful jewellery, with themes including butterflies, skulls, bows and feathers.
Her collections are named after close family and friends, though her inspiration is drawn from her childhood home in Devon. Roaming beaches and countryside, picking up feathers and shells, Daisy has transformed these natural shapes into quirky jewellery, with a raw yet feminine twist.

The skull bracelets are the top of my wish list, while the studded rings (featured in the post, below) and bangles the perfect accessories for AW 09/10. It's especially good to see Daisy having a go at men's accessories, including cufflinks and the rare, yet essential shirt stud. What I love about her designs is that they're not over stylised or over technical, and as a result this girl has created something I've been waiting for, for a while.
