Jewellery giveaway...Michael John

Post a comment below to be in to win 1 x women’s jewellery piece and 1 x mans piece from Michael John Gleaming the Void collection.

You might not be so familiar with the work of jewellery designer and Goldsmith Michael John but you’ve seen the work of this young jeweller in shops and boutiques everywhere. And I mean everywhere. I’m not at liberty to tell you who he has made work for but you would be amazed, as was I. Michael initially carved his teeth on the diamond jewellery side of things, using ‘top stones’ but wanted to get into his own street end styling, with a younger, cheekier style. He started at Hatton Garden – the centre of the London jewellery trade (since medieval times). I asked him if he’d return to diamond work he said absolutely - “ Using top stones, and working with beautiful stones is an addiction. When you have a sapphire just sitting on your desk, how could it not be,” he laughs.

We are giving away a man and a woman’s piece of Michael Johns jewellery. Post a comment below (and choose your fave piece!)

His worked is stocked in Angela Kelly jewellery Ponsonby. Michael is a serious New Zealand talent. A young craftsman who designs and makes his work. That’s rare.

Be in to win.

WOW! The collection(s) are brilliant. I'm on a massive ring trip at the moment and in love with the Bar Ring and the Little Devil ring - mad cool.

Great combination of delicacy/edginess and wacky humor/gentle elegance.

SssssS said...

Oops...forgot to add..favorite is the cuff necklace. From a distance it looks traditional...but up close it slyly suggestive.

Wow! Love the little handcuff necklace. It's so delicate yet naughty... Love it!

Really like the collection, particularly the grenade necklace and handcuff bracelet! Great to see a jeweller of Michael John's calibre produce a street-fashion line. He manages to seamlessly blend both worlds; fine jewellery quality with street-fashion themes, into what are some really desirable pieces.

Congratulations on your awesome success! Your work is absolutely stunning and very funky looking. They are all so gorgeous, but I must say I did imagine myself wearing the little devil necklace. Also, the little hottis are definately hot. Well done and good luck for the future.
