Olivia Burton’s delicate and stylish watches took the accessory world by storm when they launched in 2012. Now the brand has taken an exciting step into the world of jewellery, so we caught up with brand founders Lesa Bennett and Jemma Fennings to find out more...
Renowned for their beautiful, vintage-inspired fashion watches, Olivia Burton have introduced an exciting new range of jewellery to compliment their existing collection. Made up of dainty necklaces, statement bangles and easy-to-wear pieces, the collection playfully nods to the popular watch motifs incorporating the iconic 3D bee designs. We asked brand founders Lesa Bennett and Jemma Fennings to tell us more about this exciting new venture into the world of jewellery.
Tell us about the new collection and why you decided to take this step into jewellery?
Jemma: We’ve always loved accessories so launching jewellery was a natural progression for the brand. We had so many of our lovely customers asking us to design bracelets to sit alongside their watches, so we started designing and we just couldn’t stop. Before we knew it we had a whole jewellery collection that we fell in love with. We launch new styles every few months alongside our new watch collections and we’ve tried to design bracelets and bangles that can be stacked alongside the watches. Our new January pieces are super cute, my personal favourite is the Moulded Bee Mix Metal Drop Necklace - it's perfect for layering up.
Lesa: We have taken some details from our most-loved watch styles and incorporated them into some of the jewellery styles. Our new Daisy jewellery pieces were inspired by our Moulded Daisy Watch, which is a true conversational piece. We’re really into statement earrings at the moment – our Daisy Jackets are so super cute and I always get so many compliments when I wear mine.
