HEATHER PAINE JEWELLERY
One of the original and individual jewellery designers on our Directory, Heather Paine uses Sterling silver to create beautiful rings, bracelets and earrings. Her gorgeous new summer ring collection is inspired by ancient Rome, with each ring given a grainy, antique finish through a process called reticulation.
The rings are left plain or set with stones such as star sapphires and pink and green tourmaline. Each one is made in hallmarked silver and adjustable, and the elegant, wide band is the perfect way to show off tanned hands and fingers. Prices are affordable, too, from £75.

WENDY MCLEAN JEWELLERY
Wendy McLean's jewellery designs, featuring bespoke coiled wire work, are totally original and beautifully on-trend. Wendy combines her enamelled copper wire with freshwater pearls, beads or gemstones to create beautiful bracelets, cuffs, necklaces, earrings and pendants in a whole paintbox of colours, from the palest pastels to the boldest brights and deepest neutrals. She then combines them in rainbow mixes, in single colours or a blend of two or three toning shades.
For summer, she has added a collection of wide cuffs that look fabulous with sleeveless, strappy or three-quarter sleeve dresses and tops, which all work equally well for days at the beach or to give an evening outfit some va-va-voom. See the whole Wendy McLean Jewellery collection
