I’ve had Rachel Entwistle’s business card sat on my desk since I spotted her pieces back in February at The Jewellery Show, so I was pleased to have a virtual ‘prod’ into featuring her work when her new lookbook landed in my inbox.
Featuring spiders, ants and beetles, cascading chains and faceted stone beads, Entwistle’s handmade pieces are both a little creepy and a little whimsical. I think the brand does a particularly good line in earrings – creepy-crawlies dropping from the lobes alone or with layers of dripping chains.
The lookbook shows off Entwistle’s branding, with spidery handwriting creeping across the pages and a short story or fable preceding each range. Building her brand has been a key factor is Entwistle’s recent success, having been shortlisted for the UK Jewellery Awards ‘New Designer of the Year’.
