Above: Studded torque drape necklace - £35 from Topshop
Lily says: This statement torque necklace from Topshop would take a very simple outfit to a whole other level of chicness. Burnished gold and with a drop of 56cm, it would look amazing worn with a simple maxi dress for a look that would set you apart this party season.

These unusual wooden-connector necklaces come from London-based Maru Kiko. Creatued by Lovisa Lindstrom and featuring silver chains and colourful painted twigs and wood picked up in the forests of Sweden, the necklaces would add a splash of the unusual to a casual outfit of jeans and a plain tee or would look great worn with chunky, cozy knitwear this season.
Painting twigs, driftwood and such in this style and using them for mobiles, hanging decorations or jewellery lcould also be a great DIY project!

Having worked as an art director, stylist, painter and set designer, New York based Pamela Love launched her striking jewellery collection in 2007 to great acclaim, having found it hard to find jewellery that suited the needs of her various creative projects. Primarily working from the basement of her Brooklyn apartment, it wasn't long before the fashion world sat up and took note of Love's creations which draw inspiration from nature, science, astrology, music, magic and so much more!
Since the launch of her jewellery range, Pamela has collaborated with countless designers and film makers - even working with director Spike Jonze to create a range inspired by his "Where The Wild Things Are".
Lily says: I love the intergalactic style of some of these pieces - cones and space-age half-moons bursting with rough-cut quartz - if this is the jewellery they wear in space then beam me up Scotty (or Pamela!) The necklaces and rings inspired by Dia du los Muertos decorations also stike a chord - adorning the wearer with intricate bunting of skulls and lace design. If only I had a spare arm and leg to chop off in payment for something from this collection!

I can't get enough of the 'Me & My Arrow' collection of necklaces, rings and cuffs from Digby & Iona. The pieces feature oxodised bronze, sterling silver and carefully selected feathers. I love their rough, hand-tooled quality and the way they hang off-centre makes them real statement pieces. What do you think?
