Doing this jewellery report was especially satisfying since I have been really sick in bed with the flu. It was almost like a sprinkling of crystal magic enveloped my feverish dreams. Spring ’13 is full of crystals – in rainbow hues , upon transparent plastic or silicon, enlarged or en masse. It is also full of metallics , especially gold – taking shape as gold hardwear and tough chains , connected rows on necklaces or quite simply chunky and beautiful (I love Eddie Borgo’s collection). Joan Collins would be in heaven!
