Made in HK: BejewelledBespoke

Twitter followers of ShoeGeek and I will find this a familiar name. Also known as @BBespokeDesigns, the designer behind BejewelledBespoke has created beautiful pieces that both ShoeGeek and I covet and we were also the inspiration behind one of her creations (see above). Having moved here from Australia recently, the designer has a flare for making drool-worthy statement pieces. She takes a few moments out of her time to answer a few questions for Hong Kong Fashion Geek:
5 Fun Facts
Why BejewelledBespoke?
I chose ‘Bejewelled Bespoke’ because my jewellery designs are for the female that wants to make a statement and be noticed by wearing a conversation piece. As each handmade design may use limited-in-production or vintage materials, I often only have a few pieces of each design to offer. I also offer custom jewellery design services and love working with customers to produce their own bespoke piece.

Best-selling piece
The Piece de Resistance earrings are my best selling piece. I have had orders for these in different colours and even using semi-precious stones.

Most-used material
Does creativity count? Aside from that, I use a lot of different materials in my designs. You’ll find everything from vintage stampings, feathers, fabric, beads, and even recycled vintage jewellery. Lately, I have been using a lot of freshwater pearls for custom bridal jewellery orders.

Piece that you can't bear to part with
A vintage cuff bracelet with a pearl cabochon as the focal piece. I purchased the cuff bracelet blanks off Etsy and the seller only had two! I have already sold the spare one and am hoarding the other for myself.

Favourite designer
I don’t have a single favourite designer, but instead have a few designers whose collections I never fail to fall in love with. Christian Louboutin for shoes, Matthew Williamson for his amazing prints, Dolce & Gabbana for their structured dresses, Alexander McQueen for anything classic yet fabulous, Sass & Bide for attention grabbing pieces (and because I miss home!), and Miriam Haskell for classic costume jewellery.
