Discovered: Fiona Paxton

A review caught my attention today from the latest JC report,, a fashion industry newsletter, about the necklaces by Fiona Paxton. Paxton graduated from the Royal College of Art in the early 1990s and worked for years at major fashion houses including Cholé and Armani. She has now set out on her own, creating beautiful, hand embrodiered and textile based necklaces and draped accessories. She combines the use of ancient threading and embrodiery techniques with silver and metal chains and beads to make unique, eye catching pieces.The scarves are full of color and pattern, an influence of India can be detected. The necklaces tend to stay more neutral with white, gray and black accented with the metal pieces. Check it out,
