Leyla Abdollahi was nominated for Jewellery Designer of the Year at the UK Jewellery Awards in 2012. Her latest collection, Lust and Lure is inspired by art Deco, with colors, issues and designs of a resounding 1920’s, but the curvy designs are decidedly modern and very beautiful. Constantly on the lookout for new materials to use in her work and always striving to push the boundaries in creative design, Leyla says: “I do not simply create jewellery, I create pieces for collectors who want something beautiful to enjoy and treasure.”
New collection abounds with gems such as green emeralds, white diamonds and onyx. There is a stunning gold ring featuring baguette-cut emeralds and onyx, with white diamonds gently flaring out from the open circle. A double ring curves gently around the fingers with the two mirror image halves held together by a diamond-encrusted knot.
Leyla plans to launch a collection made from silver as well as continuing her international expansion, particularly in the Middle East, Asia and the United States.
