Designer: Lua Lua

Lua Lua's jewellery designs make me happy; bright colours, geometric shapes, attitude and beauty. Made by Justyna Niewiara, a History of Art student turned jewellery designer, the collections merge the tactile nature of perspex with sterling silver, creating futuristic yet wearable designs, vivid in colour and clean in line...

The first thing that drew me to Lua Lua's designs was the necklace, below, which - in its rainbow colours and sharp shape - reminded me of a modern-day ruff collar. Kind of jester-like, summery, fun. The simple perspex forms are only accentuated by the bold primary colours. All you need is a black or white tshirt, some beaten, old hi-tops and the look's pretty much done.


To see more of Lua Lua this summer, Justyna will be at Treasure jewellery show during London Jewellery Week in June. Her pieces can also been found at the Tate Modern, as part of the Van Doesburg and the International Avant-Garde exhibition. You can also shop online here.
