Image Magazine: Interview with Karon Jacobson December 06 2014

Here is the interview and some of the photos in the feature article I did recently with Irish fashion magazine - Image. It was a pleasure to do the interview, and I enjoyed the opportunity to talk about my design process, from travelling to choosing the right gem stones, that inspire my work.
What are your favourite stones and techniques? 
I use diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires and tourmalines. I use sliced diamonds and tourmalines for their size, but the weight is reduced. It means earrings get the wow-factor, but aren’t too heavy on the ear.

You’re all about mixing textures …
That’s a big part of my signature style; I often use leather and cord instead of gold or silver chains for necklaces or bracelets. It gives the stones and pendants an earthy, casual vibe whilst complementing the stones.

What’s new for autumn/winter? 
My diamond and precious stone ring charm and earring charm collection. The idea of taking a beautiful sparkling stone out of a static setting, such as a claw or bezel set, appealed to me to show the stone.

You travel a lot to source your stones – tell us about a special piece 
I discovered the cabochon emerald several years ago on a trip to Rajasthan. The dealer explained it was originally the centre stone of a magnificent emerald necklace previously owned and worn by the Maharaja of Jaipur. After some serious haggling, the stone was mine. I set it in a very simple yellow gold bezel setting, and today it is worn as a ring. It’s one of my favourite pieces.

Trends to love this season? 
It’s all about big, bold colours. Large hoop earrings worn as a pair or singular, large hand and arm cuffs and chokers, single cabochon cut rings set in a simple bezel setting; yellow gold will be a strong trend too.

I would like to say thanks to the team at Image for this feature article in this month's magazine. I've been waiting for November to come round so I could pick up my copy! It is a jewellery special, featuring top designers and brands such as Tiffany, and I was very pleased to do the interview, and be a part of this special issue. For me, I am passionate about quality, taking care to choose the right gems for each and every piece, and I enjoyed talking about the design process and key trends for AW14/15.
