Deborah Blyth is one of the runaway hits of the past couple of seasons of The Jewellery Cut Live in association with Fuli Gemstones. Always one of the busiest stands, visitors regularly flock to try on and buy her statement gold vermeil jewels, including a very famous jewellery editor at the last event.
This season, Deborah Blyth will be back at the show for the third time with her bold designs. Her latest collection, Goddess, pays homage to ethereal women through roughly textured swathes of gold vermeil that curl at the edges and look as if they are still molten.
Lockdown has been a busy time for Blyth – no surprise there, as she makes the perfect Zoom earrings – and she will emerge with new jewels, including two exciting new collaborations. Read on to find out more.
What have you been up to since we last saw you?
“As well as developing new designs, I have been working on two collaborations. I am beyond excited to be collaborating with a wonderful artist [all will be revealed in October], and a long-held dream of working with the Turquoise Mountain foundation is becoming a reality.”
How has lockdown been for you?
“Like many people, I have relished the opportunity to slow down and take stock, and being able to closely observe nature on my frequent long walks on Hampstead Heath has been such a joy. I experienced a deep need to be creative and to focus on the positivity that comes from designing during the past few very strange months. We also very much wanted to support a local charity during lockdown, and have been able to donate a percentage of sales to The Camden Food Bank.”
Apart from your own, what jewels do you covet?
“Anything from Pippa Small.”
Tell us about your latest collection.
“The Goddess collection celebrates strong women of myth and legend. Baroque pearls are swathed in flowing, fluid pieces of gold, and tactile unisex pendants have strong square or oblong shapes with curled edges and rippled surfaces.”
Why should people come out and visit you at The Jewellery Cut Live in 2021?
“It will be such a joyful occasion for people to at last be able to enjoy seeing wonderful and diverse styles of jewellery. I love people being able to pick up and try on my designs. They are best appreciated when they can be touched, as the pieces are designed for their tactile appeal.”
