Her pieces make amazing presents, so if you are ever stuck, this is your girl. Check out her personalised signature bangle and bar necklace that can be stamped with your name. Yep, you are welcome – I think that made your life a bit easier - www.danielladraper.com
Daniella oozes optimism and when she isn’t designing she comes down to London to hang out at her favourite – Chelsea Arts Club and to pay a ritual visit to her castor in Hatton Garden; ‘Just Casting‘ - who is also the castor to the Queen, no less.
You can also find Daniella sailing in the ‘Coupe des Dames’ race in St Tropez together with her super stylish mother and sister. To relax she chills in The Bar Sube that overlooks the Marina with a G&T in hand.

Lauren is a jewellery designer, specialising in bespoke designs under her own name – LAUREN ADRIANA. Her designs are magical and full of panache – very much like their creator.
When she isn’t designing jewellery she is an avid foodie and always has wonderful recommendations that are worth writing down. Here she shares two of her current favourites that both, intriguingly, revolve around jewel-like foods (of course!). The first is ‘Alexeeva & Jones‘; an artisan chocolate shop which recently opened on 297, Westbourne Grove that is “perfect for presents or self-gifting”.
The second is in Paris, it is called ‘L’Eclair de Genie’ and it’s a concept eclair store. So if you are bored of macaroons already, head down to 14 rue Pavee and indulge in something new and much more exciting.

She loves her music – she is a confessed chid of the 80s; it follows her day and night inspiring her with lyrics and quotes that come alive in her custom made rings, bracelets and necklaces.
“Sharing one umbrella,
We have to hold each other,
Round the waist to keep together,
You ask me why I’m smiling -
It’s because in thinking,
I want it to rain forever.”
We shot her in Brooklyn, NY. She is an iPhone girl.
