I rarely exhibit but when the Green Rooms Hotel invited me to design and create two new pieces for their amazing Art Deco establishment in Wood Green, London, I jumped at the chance.
Check the New Events page for further details.
Inspired by Nouveau and Pre-Rapaelite art and the desire to make permanent natures beauty which is so fleeting.
Marrying fashion, art, sculpture and jewellery design to form a number of full body pieces and accessories made from Silver, Brass and Copper
Demonstrating how bold, wearable metalwork holds it's place as an outfit in it's own right. As striking and beautiful as any fabric garment.
DDD were very proud to hold our very first catwalk show as part of the Alternative London Fashion Week hosted by Alternative Arts. It was held at Spitalfields Traders Market in East London and it is an event that is seen by many as the place to see the best in cutting edge fashion.
It was wonderful to see so many friends and colleagues that came down to see the fabulous show we created especially for the occasion. With the worlds fashion press there enmass, it really was a great day!
"Jewellery has generally been seen as an accessory and an add on to an outfit so we set out to expand our designs to create full body adornments, bouquets, cuffs and head pieces that are as beautiful in their own right as any garment."
Once again inspired by mother nature DontDoDainty produced this piece 'Climbing Rose' for a treasured long-term private client.
As with the majority of our work, this Silver Cuff is a one off unique item that we had great fun making for a particularly special occassion.
Made from Glass, Copper, Brass, Nickel, Aluminium and Silver this one and a half meter high piece is an explosion of colour, tones and textures.
Beautiful and bold statement designs for beautiful and bold discerning women.
In 1989 dancer Michael Clark approached Josie Jones and Jake Walters of Big Hard Excellent Fish to write a piece of music for his forthcoming work with the Phoenix Dance Company. Josie, formerly a member of Pete Wylie’s Mighty Wah! asked Pete to work with them on this and the ‘Imperfect List’ was born: a sober, chilling - and very heartfelt cry and denouncement of Britain’s then-ill’s.
After many requests in subsequent years to ‘update’, it was not until 2011 when approached by One Little Indian that Big Hard Excellent Fish decided that the time was right, the resulting track is ‘And The Question Remains’, written by Josie and Ian.C.
DontDoDainty was commissioned to create a metal wreath (in honour of Josies mother) for the cover of the EP photographed by Jake Walters.
From elegant but bold Bracelets to Unique Hand Pieces and provocative Body Wear, DontDoDainty prides itself on making Women feel even more Beautiful.
As with all of our work these are generally one offs or Limited Edition
