Lily Cole - Lily Cole creates first jewellery line

Lily Cole Jewellery

Lily Cole has created her first jewellery line.

The 25-year-old model has teamed up with Sky Rainforest Rescue to put together a range of rings, bracelets and pendants all made from Amazonian wild rubber and believes the pieces will help those who wear it ''connect'' to the place it was made in.

She told Vogue.co.uk: ''For me, the collection is a metaphor of what is possible. I hope we can use the material in many other products in the future.

''Jewellery is also a good way of communicating the value and delicacy of the rainforest it represents. Wearing it against skin can connect us with a place and a dialogue that is seemingly far away.''

Lily - who is an ambassador of the foundation helmed by WWF and Sky - wanted the raw substance to feel ''valuable'', and focused more on the message behind it than the overall appearance of the finished pieces.

She added: ''In this instance, the rubber itself became the prayer. I wanted the jewellery to feel valuable but also vulnerable - as a metaphor for the rainforest. I wanted it to be something people would both love and treat delicately.

''I am more interested in the story behind the objects than the process of design itself, but design is an inherent part of a lot of what I do, and important for communicating ideas.''

The Lily Cole jewellery collection is available to purchase now on stylistpick.com.
