CarrieMe's shares their favourite contemporary jewellers as part of London's Jewellery Weeek

Let's celebrate all the wonderful jewellery designers out there - after all it is Jewellery Week in London!

At CarrieMe, we've picked some of our favourites that we found at the Jewellery Show in Somerset House, and are delighted that some of them will be featured in "Treasure", an exhibition set in Somerset House and open to the public this weekend (Friday 14th June - Sunday 16th June).

1) LucyQ Designs

Lucy is an award winning contemporary jewellery designer and I absolutely love her quirky and fun sterling silver designs, from clouds, drips, puzzles, buttons and more.... plus she'll be exhibiting at Treasure as part of Jewel Street, so make sure you stop by to find her!

He's an Italian designer based in Spain, with a penchant for using natural leather skins and a brilliant magnetic clip for his bracelets.  He's recently also branched out more into metal - I was drawn to both his stunning Armour and leather bracelets.

Maria Thompson is the designer behind the Maree brand whose beautiful contemporary pieces are all handcrafted in silver, gold and with precious stones.  I was particularly taken by her new Daffodill collection (also one of my favourite flowers) the smaller daffodil on the pendant can move around.... don't forget to seek her out at Treasure, as you'll be amazed at her wonderful collection!

So don't forget to get your ticket in advance for the Treasure show - they're only £10 each but I think you can still get a 2:1 deal so hurry!!!
