Earlier this year I featured my picks from London Fashion Week jewellery, including some intriguing Hannah Martin pieces coated in bright, glossy colours for the Louise Amstrup show.
Martin’s new range of powder-coated brass pieces have now been released for sale as a diffusion collection HM Show - a selection of her most iconic shapes realised in these new materials, aimed to attract a new type of customer with seasonal, fashionable colours and more accessible price points.
The red knife-edge knuckle duster is the piece that has caught my eye. A colour I feel works wonders in small doses, a flash of red lipstick or nail polish, a red lamp on a desk or a painted table in a monochrome room immediately draws the eye and always looks exciting. I think the same effect will be had by a stripe of gorgeous, glossy red across the fingers – for an easy, yet striking, update.
