Little Miss Demure

Oh, can you imagine what fun it must be to have 'Demure' for a surname? Just ask jewellery PR Valery Demure here, who we persuaded to pose among all her Natalia Brilli samples during a visit to her East London studio this morning. There has been a recent upturn in editorial interest in progressive jewellery design and we were excited to see how many of Valery's clients are rising to meet the challenge: check out the beaded bliss of Florian Ladstaetter (who you may remember from our sojourn at Austrian Fashion Week), the perfectly finished, leathery world of Natalia Brilli, the exquisitely jewelled handcraft of hotly-tipped Scott Stephen or the much-in-demand jeweller to Vivienne Westwood, Laurent Rivaud.
