On February 3rd 2011 Little Glass Clementine will reveal her exclusive collection for Selfridges and her exquisite window display based on her Grandmothers Attic..
A new comer to the world of fashion, Little Glass Clementine began with a stall in Portobello Market but launched her debut collection with Estethica at London Fashion Week September 2010 with a highly acclaimed collection of unique and beautiful ethical handmade jewellery.
Little Glass Clementine intricately weaves together precious and discarded objects. Antique jewellery, treasure, wood, bones, junk, old gems, watches, and even bath plugs! The ethos for these designs is a simple one: to recycle and remake jewellery in the hope of retelling a story. Each necklace therefore is a unique tactile journal, enthused with narrative.
The designer of Little Glass Clementine is Clementine James, both an environmental activist and a self-taught artist. Her artistry is revealing that beauty and value are interpretable, that a pebble can be as exquisite and as precious as an emerald and it is the way that it is put together that is significant.
At Selfridges on Saturday 19th February 2pm Clementine will be running a workshop and Q and A session at on her modern craft of making recycled jewellery. Members of the public will be encouraged to make their own ‘’Little Glass Clementine’’ style necklaces
Wishing you a huge success Clementine, beautiful and such original work. I for one am so looking forward to seeing your Grandmother themed window display.
