A controversial voice and pioneer of the punk aesthetic, Judy Blame's first brush with jewellery design came via threading conkers into a necklace. Humble beginnings for the resourceful stylist, art director and designer, who soon styled promos for Duran Duran, Neneh Cherry and Boy George. An architect of London underground culture during the '80s, Judy Blame's eclectic jewellery is tactile and emotive, mixing what appears to be cheap, found objects with traditional symbols of British culture.
With no traditional fashion training, Blame's romantic process saw him repurposing objets trouvés as bold statement pieces. He unfortunately passed away at 58 last year, but these new pieces stay on brand, with Punk and New Romantic style accompaniments - safety pins and buttons.
