My brand of the month for July is:


Iris was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and moved to the UK to study. Her jewellery is inspired by traditional Mexican crafts as well as colourful 1960s design.

I’ve chosen to showcase her work this month chiefly because of the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A: Iris has been commissioned to produce a number of designs specifically for the exhibition, which are available in the museum shop in person and online.

Antonio the Golden Sun (Antonio el Sol Dorado) is a favourite brooch of mine, gleaming brightly and cheerfully.

He can be paired with the Moon (La Luna), who shines with a silvery shimmer.

The Cat (Gato) brooch is adorable.

So is this deer brooch, representing Frida Kahlo’s pet deer.

Speaking of Frida: this beautiful Frida Flower Crown brooch is unique to the V&A.

There is a whole range of exclusive jewellery available, but this parrot brooch is top of my list for when I visit the exhibition.
