>aNothing gets us excited like a new label discovery, and our latest one comes seriously celeb approved. We’re talking about Brit jewellery designer Kirstie Maclaren, whose simple but statement creations have been adorning Alesha Dixon for the Britain’s Got Talent auditions this week.
Ms Dixon first rocked accessorized her thigh-slit Stella McCartney LBD with a chic gold bangle, before opting for the beautiful ‘Ivor’ gemstone pendant to add extra oomph (if that’s even possible!) to her plunging v-front Gucci jumpsuit.
She’s not the only TV talent judge partial to a Kirstie Maclaren piece either – Nicole Scherzinger is another mega fan, even wearing four pieces at once during one X-Factor episode with her silver and gold metal mash up.
So just who is this new under-the-radar designer that the celeb’s can’t get enough of? Each of Kirstie’s designs are handmade in London in sterling silver or gold vermeil, but you can order pieces in luxe solid gold too. It’s not all A-list only prices either – designs start at £50, going up to just under £300. Kirstie also hosts super cool workshops around London, where you can design and create your own bespoke piece while sipping on a cocktail in a cool bar. You never know, you might find yourself getting crafty with Alesha and Scherzy at this rate.
