Strange of London

Sunday 05 August 2012
Words Spindle

Matthew Strange, a name who could easily disguise himself in a Neil Gaiman fantasy, presents himself as the jewellery connoisseur of Strange Of London. A potion of playful and artistic spells this unique and beautiful interpretation of nature, with eclectic and exquisite accessories that have golden charm whilst also raising awareness of wilderness issues. From a medley of gold, silver and precious stones, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

The honeybee necklace has gold leaf looking wings for something verging on Egyptian bliss, and the honeycomb interlocked design even gives a cute pinch of Olympic esque spirit. Encouraging us to ‘Bee Aware’, Mr Strange hopes that by wearing these stunning pieces, the buzz of their importance and unfortunate plight will be known. The stag necklace is also an eye-catching item that sums up the ‘Strange’ attraction, with the designer Matthew describing how “they remind me of my childhood; coming across a stag beetle in the garden was like finding an insect that was from prehistoric times.”
