Links of London (Twitter - @Links_of_London) have teamed up with McLaren to create a collection of men's jewellery and accessories. Launching in April, Philippe Cogoli; Links of London's head of design for watches, men's jewellery and accessories, told us that working with McLaren had been an inspiration. He had worked closely with the team, even including a visit to their manufacturing plant, to identify elements of the actual F1 car that he could use within this collection.
This culminated in the pieces using brushed metal, matt finishes, interlocking sections of stainless steel, keviar and a patented McLaren screw (an exclusive for Links, as until now it was solely used within McLaren cars). Jewellery is now firmly in the fast lane!

Now this is one of the best openings to a website we have ever seen. Talk about being inspired to read more! So we did, and found out that Ellen Wilson creates striking and dramatic pieces of jewellery that don't take themselves, or the owners, too seriously.
A brilliant concept from a truly creative individual from Bonnie Glasgow. Now I wonder what Ellen would make of our bug bracelets? Maybe we could create an 'Attack of the giant insects' scene using her Park Life pendants?
