By Jessica Knowles
Sheffield jewellery designer Jessica Flinn has launched Green & Lister, a new jewellery brand at the Jewellery Show London today.
Green & Lister has design and manufacture roots in Sheffield, where Jessica Flinn lives and works, creating her mainline and children’s collections. The Green & Lister brand also pays a personal tribute to the designer’s family heritage.
Flinn said of the launch: "Green and Lister were the maiden names of my grandmothers and are used as a subtle homage to their memories. "Both were stylish, confident and sophisticated women and these are the three strong qualities that the Green & Lister designs and brand celebrate.”
Green & Lister has launched with its Keystone collection, featuring simple and classic designs crafted in silver and gold such as small rondell necklaces. Keystone will be followed in September 2013 with new flower designs and a range called Oxygen.
Flinn’s new Silveramics range, inspired by Russian textiles, Dutch Delftware and the classic Willow Pattern, will also feature as part of the Jewellery Show London’s catwalk shows.
She added: “To be selected for the catwalk show is a great accolade for me. It’s saying that work from Jessica Flinn Design is completely on trend." Flinn now owns and creates jewellery under three brand names: Jessica Flinn Designs, Little Flinn and Green & Lister.
