I love a good piece of statement jewellery and if you were at London Fashion Week you probably spotted quite a few fashionistas wearing a ‘Yorkshire Pearl’ bangle and no two are alike. Bert Clayton creates each piece using a variety of raw materials including vintage scarves, buttons, watch pieces, snakeskin and vintage fur. I love this type of design – it may appear to have a very haphazard feel but to create that look you really have to have an eye for detail and Bert certainly has that. He also has an amazing talent for finding exquisite pieces of vintage clothing!
