AIMING TO CREATE MODERN CLASSICS WITH AN ETERNALLY GLAMOUROUS AND CREATIVE AESTHETIC, STEPHEN WEBSTER THIS TIME CAPTURES DAVID BOWIE’S MULTIFACETED STYLE WITH HIS “LADY STARDUST” COLLECTION.
Inspired by David Bowie, who Stephen Webster says, has had a great influence on him, the eponymous brand’s starting point for this jewellery line was the lighting motif that once covered the icon's “Aladdin Sane” album. But there is more Britishness to this collection than Englishmen alone. The herringbone motif, for example, is translated in the jewels by the use of black and white and sometimes made to look like dip dye to the effect not forgotten by British history and culture. “Intrigued by the image and back story to “Albion Rose”, a William Blake illustration which depicts a mythological giant called Albion who granted his name to his rule on the island that was to become England over a thousand years before the Romans, " I started to create a collection inspired by alternative interpretations of being British”, Stephen Webster says.
Drop earrings and striking rings, artfully crafted from sapphires, crystal haze stones and pearls in bright and vibrant colours are the result of this impeccable transmission - Very British, indeed.
