One of my favourite activities in the run up to Christmas are all the art and design fairs that spring up. I delight in seeing all the lovingly handmade gifts, from soaps to artisan chocolates. For me, jewellery stalls always offer that extra little festive sparkle, something about the gleaming precious metals and shiny stones.

During one of these craft fair visits at the weekend, I was just on my last lap of the town hall when Alex Yule Jewellery caught my eye. Light and delicate but with a modern twist, just how I like my adornments and exactly what I imagine a modern day fairy to favour. I especially love the Urchin Collection, it stirred in my mind the shoe box I had full of mermaids purses, sea urchins and shells that I would add to on every family seaside trip.
