Watch out, my diamonds are reckless!

I love sculptural jewelry, hefty rings and mountains of bracelets all piled up and clashing.  Pearls worn next to perspex.  Delicate chain bangles and spikey chokers.  Mostly on other people!  My collection is small and unassuming, but I love seeing pictures of girls who keep piles of precious things on flowery china plates on their dressing tables.

I found out about Jessica McCormack via the perenially lovely somuchtotellyou. Her shop is (understandably!) appointment only, and in London, but you can see some of her breathtaking pieces on her website.

Isn’t it all just to die for?  The collections and pieces all have such romantic names  – Messenger of the Gods, Jewels of the Urban Night, Death Star, Bird Bones.  Her blog has extras-for-experts photos too, of the pieces in gorgeous and unexpected display – like the first earring above tucked in a tiny monkey skull.

I know I’ll never afford these in a million years, but because it’s such cleverly designed and finely crafted art, I get so much pleasure from looking that there isn’t really a pain from lack of having.  (Isn’t it TERRIBLY VIRTUOUS of me to say that??)
