Vanessa Gillespie for Banneya London
It’s been an exciting month here at Banneya London! We are pleased to announce our latest collaboration with amazing Parsons trained, Canadian designer Vanessa Gillespie! Vanessa’s work is heavily inspired by her background as an art historian, anchored in a true artistic sensibility. As a medievalist, Vanessa’s designs are often inspired by its rich ornementation, giving all her jewellery historical depth. With her client always in mind, her aim is to produce jewellery that is wearable, whilst still maintaining an air of glamour and luxury. Vanessa has been featured in W Magazine and the Sunday Times and her fans have been following her since her debut in the jewellery world.
We are delighted to have Vanessa on board! For both Banneya and Vanessa, this collaboration easily fell into place and we are delighted to exclusively offer the latest Vanessa Gillespie Fine Jewellery Aurelia Collection. A beautiful set of earrings, stacking ring and pendant, the Aurelia collection comes in 6 of our amazing gemstones and in 18ct white, yellow and rose golds. We absolutely loved the clean lines, beautiful concepts and hope you will all enjoy the collection too. Visit our website to customise your own and our fabulous workshops will make them for you in just 3 weeks.
As we planned this launch, we took some time to speak to Vanessa and learnt that she was excited to work with Banneya as we bring “such expertise and enjoyment. When I work with people I feel comfortable with, I find inspiration comes easily.” We were delighted by Vanessa’s kind words and are now thrilled to share with you this beautiful collection.
Here at Banneya London we are focused on showcasing the most amazing jewellery from the best designers around the globe and allowing customers to customise their own bespoke pieces. As we work with a number of precious gemstones, we had to ask our designer what her favourite is! “I would have to say a ruby or a natural yellow sapphire. I love warm coloured stones as they elicit an emotional response that is both passionate and visually stimulating.” With an answer as beautiful as that, we’re all set for a fantastic new launch!
