Macro and mirco  inspired jeweller Ana Thompson will make her London Fashion Week debut this week with must-see collections of arresting fine jewellery for SS18. 

Housed within LFW’s Designer Showrooms, three intrepid collections Vortex, Sedna and Spin will embody Ana’s fascination with the macroscopic and microscopic worlds of nature, science and technology. With statement bangles, chokers, rings and cufflinks, the collections are a daring antidote to delicacy, and highlight the return of bold jewellery for SS18.  

Crafted in sterling silver, gold vermeil and precious 18ct gold, Ana Thompson Fine Jewellery combines skilful hand craftsmanship with cutting edge technological applications.  The result is sculptural yet highly wearable designs for the modern jewellery wearer. 

The iconic, award-winning Vortex Series evokes the mysteries of the universe and the powerful yet invisible forces of space. Sculptural, timeless and versatile, the collection features rings, earrings, bangles and pendants hewn in silver or 18ct yellow, white and black gold. Launching exclusively at London Fashion Week, Ana Thompson will reveal several new and refined Vortex designs for SS18, including hoop earrings and an elegantly coiled silver choker.

The Sedna Series echoes the exceptionally long, oval orbit of Sedna, the most distant planet ever found in our Solar System. Fascinated by its far-flung location, Ana Thompson has captured Sedna as lustrous white Akoya and peacock pearls, set against the flowing orbits of precious metal chain necklaces, earrings and rings. 

In addition, refined for SS18, Ana Thompson’s Spin Series of unisex cufflinks will complement her fine jewellery, with patterns reminiscent of visual echoes, captured as sculptural cufflinks in silver or 18ct yellow, white and black gold.

Ana Thompson says of her collections:

“The designs are a daring juxtaposition, with pieces that flow from delicate to bold. They are visually soft and elegant, yet simultaneously tactile and arresting. I look forward to presenting them at the SS18 LFW Designer Showrooms, with a number of special editions on show for the very first time.”

Thompson is based at the Goldsmiths’ Centre, London, she previously studied an MA in jewellery at the Sir John Cass Department of Art, Media & Design, has collaborated with microbiologist Dr Sean Speese and shown her work at the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). At the beginning of the year her Vortex and Spin Series won her two Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards.
