Claire English will be designing an exclusive collection for London retailer Neony.
The jewellery will be showcased at the retailers recently opened concept store on Goodge Street, from July 26.
Neony founder and creative director Nicola Hadjithoma said: “Claire is quirky by nature and this definitely comes through in her highly imaginative and eccentric work. We’re very excited to be showcasing her work in our gallery of jewels, as her witty, irreverent and playful design philosophy fits in so well with ours”.
The offerings include a collection of gold vermeil Lit Matches and a series of rose gold vermeil Magpie Bones, as well as the Seven for a Secret Swag Collar, showcasing her interest in the narrative potential of surrounding objects.
English said that she is excited to be making an exclusive collection for Neony. She added: “I love the unconventional and interesting feel to the exciting new gallery and it’s a real honour to be the first native to be given the Neony seal of approval.”
