"Dressage"

Inspired by a recent holiday in Vietnam Dressage features delicate shapes and silhouettes which reference the kite-flying and bicycle-riding folk of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The shift from working with acrylic to wood has allowed
the designer to explore the ideas of ‘hand-made’. She confides, “Because I hand-stain and varnish every cutout you can never predict the result. It just adds so much charm as no one piece is ever the same!”

“Horseplay & Ponytails”

dapple-grey took inspiration for its debut collection from an old 1950’s brooch found in the midst of a jewellery box owned by the designers mother. Two tarnished blue bird joined by a rusted chain enthused designer Renee Glastonbury to create a modern take on the idea.

The pieces in ‘Horseplay & Ponytails’ were designed using hard-wearing acrylic plastic, laser cut into intricate silhouettes that are strung onto fine chain.

The brooches and necklaces are a striking addition to anyone’s accessory collection. The vivid and unique pieces are perfect for making an outfit that little bit more playful.
