She’s young, she’s talented and she’s one of the new London College of Fashion‘s graduates definitely to watch. This is Liron Kliger, an Israeli born jewellery designer, who after traveling in Barcelona, Paris, Milan and Tel Aviv is now based in London.
Her latest project developed from a fascination with snakeskin and infatuation with catwalk pieces motivating her to create her own interpretation via snakeskin inspired bangles designed for the catwalk.
Quirky, colorful, and extremely eye-catching, Liron Kliger‘s bangles perfectly match the goal of her research, aiming to create unique pieces encompassing the form and essence of the material used, and look ideally suited for a fashionable summery outfit.

Silvia Beccaria is not new on DOY, but it’s always a great pleasure to show her amazing history-charming works. She’s indeed one of the few contemporary fiber artists really to watch, who’s been able to enrich an old tradition using unconventional materials and innovative designs.
She realizes sculptural wearables, jewels and sometimes even arras, but her core collection is definitely represented by Ruffs. Yes, Ruffs or Spanish Collars, if you prefer, all accurately designed according to XVI/XVII centuries standards, and now turned fashionable again thanks to her talent.
After graduating from Turin University – Italy – with a degree in Philosophy, she moved on with a Master in Art Therapy, then interning at Martha Nieuwenhuijs‘s studio she started her Fiber Art research. She now creates rubber, textile, plastic or metal Ruffs, often showing her works through art galleries and institutions internationally. In about 20 years’s activity, she’s been broadly acclaimed as one of the few professional living Fiber artists for her unique style and research.

Intrigued by Japanese origami? …Ever thought of mixing it with fashion and jewels design?
Well, GEM SESSION a jewels and fashion design brand launched by Sayaka Yamamoto (yes, her name may ring a bell to all of you also furniture design addicted: …does BCXSY sound familar?) thought to put together just old Japanise tradition with contemporary fashion. That’s how Orizuru (Japanise for origami folded-crane) – a series of six necklaces, especially designed to accompany a.KNACKFUSS Dako collection- was born…
Each piece is constructed by many paper-folded cranes which are joined together and carefully coated with semi-transparent resin. All the pieces are handmade at the GEM SESSIONS studio in The Netherlands and are finished with high-quality Italian brass components.
The Orizuru necklaces are available in two types – long and short. Each type is available in three different colours – white, salmon-pink and dark-blue

EANDARE is a project started in Italy in the 90’s by Lucilla Giovanninetti – a Milan based fashion artist and designer also lecturing at IED Moda Lab and at the European Fashion School of Milan – creating jewels and accessories out of fabrics, accurately incorporating lightness and softness with metal finishing.
Today I want to focus mainly on jewellery, says Lucilla, a textile jewellery though often mixed with silver, bronze and brass sections.
That’s to say that mixed-media jewellery is her strenght, now broadly appreciated also by international clients throughout US, Japan and HongKong
Look at the slideshow below to unveil some of her new pieces:
Charlotte Valkeniers is a Belgian designer – recently graduate with an MA from the London College of Fashion – who, despite her young age, can already count on a well defined style and a strong passion for research.
Her De Fabrica Collection – partly presented in the slideshow below – is mainly centered on materials and shapes investigation. Knitted leather’s potential and the muscles of human body inspired her to develop such a line of sculptural jewelry, easily coiling neck and wrists and fitting like a loosely tailored dress.
