Simon Harrison

Since the late 1970s Simon has designed and made jewellery for some of the most iconic names in fashion including Jean Muir and for the last twenty years for Vivienne Westwood. With a body of work which captures pioneering moments in contemporary style, Simon’s designs have helped costume jewellery to become the vibrant category it is now.  It is Simon’s experience within the world of luxury accessories that has given him the freedom to shape the unique aesthetic of his own collection. In his central London studio, he heads up a creative team of highly skilled designers and craftsmen who produce pieces of jewellery with exquisite attention to detail. Simon Harrison’s deepest motivation and enjoyment of jewellery, he says, is intuitive and archetypal, not so very different from primitive man’s impulse to wear a beautiful shell around his neck. Jewellery, he believes, should be life-enhancing: an expression of personality.

Bear / Ursa Collection
Like many children’s stories, the three bears were part of an oral tradition of storytelling. Robert Southey first published his version in 1837. It’s from this story that we get our modern interpretation. Our bear is a fusion of this story with a cheeky play on the idea of a bearskin rug that might have adorned a Victorian parlour. The bearskins are made from delicately flexible chainmail with tiny tufts of metal fur - jewellery that feels as good as it looks.
