This April marks my first year at QVC, and it has gone scarily fast! The year has been full of surprises, and working with the QVC team has been an amazing experience.
The whole team has been so supportive of taking on young designers – but obviously I will always have a soft spot for the girls in the gem-buying department!
It's been really exciting for me to see the collections grow and develop for each new show, and to celebrate the culmination of my first year here there are some fantastic new pieces I have lined up for my show.
I have two favourites that I can't wait to share with you. First up is my Graduating Black Pearl & Diamond Pendant in 9ct White Gold. As you can see from my original sketch to the finished article that QVC have helped create, we've kept the delicate feminine detailing and rich, dark colours that I envisaged.
My other favourite from my new designs are the 10ct Smoky Quartz & 0.7ct Garnet Earrings in 9ct Rose Gold. We've kept the bold, angular shapes and complementing tones of gems that I sketched out when conceiving these earrings.
Both pieces have really bold colour schemes, and look very dramatic when worn. Also look out for more diamonds in the collection, particularly in champagne and black colours.
Despite a few pre-show nerves, thankfully my time on air has been drama-free – no broken jewellery, collapsing displays or spilt water (so far!) That said, all the presenters are so experienced, I doubt anything would faze them! All that remains is for me to finally work out how to navigate my way around the maze that is QVC headquarters…
See you all soon,
