Fashion trends are great for inspiration, but I can’t help but love anyone who breaks all the rules. That’s why I’m a little obsessed with Mette Lindberg, the lead singer of The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, a band that produces high-energy music that could make a cactus dance. Mette favors head-to-toe sequins, clashing colors, and piles of accessories when she hits the stage, and her voluminous, peroxide-blond hair ensures that she is always the center of attention. She is the perfect leader for this band, which specializes in jazz-infused pop-dance-rock hybrids and calls itself a “many-legged, ever-evolving, constantly moving party machine.” Mette told Grazia how much she loves glitter and gold, so I think she would go crazy for Jennifer Loiselle’s Parfait brooch and Maya Magal’s Gold Druzy ring – as a magpie myself, I can sympathize with her addiction to sparkly things. What do you think of Mette Lindberg’s wild style?

Before she found jewelry design, Maya Magal studied textiles at university. But even as a textile student, she found herself using her materials to make jewelry, so she knew she had to try a different direction. Maya learned the jewelry trade during a four-year apprenticeship with Oxford-based jeweler Tony Thomson. Now, she makes her own statement jewelry in the heart of London. She experiments with colors and materials, incorporating everything from bright druzy quartz to black diamonds into her jewelry. We had the chance to see Maya’s studio in the heart of London’s jewelry district, Hatton Garden. Maya showed us a few of her stones and explained how she makes one of her gorgeous, original rings. From raw stones to affordable diamonds, Maya’s creations are truly original.
