Designer Spotlight: Jennifer Loiselle

DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: JENNIFER LOISELLE

We are big fans of Jennifer's statement pieces using unexpected combinations of materials and techniques. laser cut perspex and quirky motifs. Her jewellery is filled with colour and imbued with a sense of humour. Most of all, she thinks wearing a piece of jewellery should be about having fun and we couldn't agree more!

Jennifer's path to designing and creating jewellery and accessories wasn't a straightforward one, taking her from writing and styling for national newspapers in Australia, India and Japan before landing in London where she created content for fashion websites and studied footwear design at Cordwainers.

A brief maternity leave induced hiatus helped her finally find her true calling as an accessories and jewellery designer and she quickly found her initial collections of limited edition pieces selling out and being worn by internet luminaries like Susie Bubble, Tavi, and Andy from Stylescrapbook.

Her work has appeared online and in print for publications including Pop, Elle UK, Marie Claire UK, Elle Girl Russia, Refinery29, The Times, Telegraph and Timeout London.

We hope you will enjoy this brief insight into her life and inspirations. 

Q: If I could design for someone in the public eye, it would be...
The artist Yayoi Kusama, I’m totally obsessed with her and share her fixation with polka dots and repeat patterns.  I was lucky enough to see her last exhibition at the Tate, at the Pompidou in Paris and the Whitney in New York and it still had the same effect on me every time I saw it. Felt weirdly like walking inside her head, slightly unnerving but at the same time completely spell binding. Seeing an 84 year old still creating vital, vibrant work at such a frenetic pace with the same focus that she had when she was in her twenties was really inspiring.

Q: I'm currently reading...
Well, actually re-reading, What I Loved by Siri Hustvedt, one of the most haunting books I’ve ever read. I gave a copy to my husband on our third date and I think it’s one of the reasons we are together now! I keep meaning to write to the author to thank her for her beautiful words and how they’ve affected my life so profoundly.

Q: My biggest inspiration is...
The Art Deco period - I love everything about the era, from fashion to architecture, and how glamorous and decadent it was. I think all my jewellery has a touch of deco about it, even if it’s not always immediately obvious; I often use archetypal deco shapes as a starting point for my collections.

Q: My food heaven is...
Malaysian street food. My parents are Chinese Malaysian and I lived on and off in Kuala Lumpur as a child and a teenager - many of my earliest memories are entwined with the food there. So really, give me a 50p steaming hot bowl of the spiciest laksa you can find over a meal at Le Caprice any day!

Q: At the end of a hectic day I like to...
Pour myself a glass of wine and watch some guilty pleasure brainless TV, sad but true.
