Vivienne Westwood - Vivienne Westwood Creates Palladium Jewellery Collection

Dame Vivienne Westwood has designed an exclusive jewellery collection using a new precious metal.

The fashion legend has created the bespoke Vivienne Westwood Get A Life Palladium Collection, which contains palladium and will be showcased at an event during London Fashion Week in February 2011.

Vivienne said of the collection: "Jewellery has nothing to do with Get a Life. Get a Life is about how we stop climate change and therefore preserve life for the next generation while at that same time get a better life. My focus at the moment is what one person can do. Stop climate change. Save the planet. The acorn is symbolic of the rainforest, its importance and how it is our first duty to save it."

Get a Life supports change and designs from the collection are inspired by nature and symbols from paganism - the acorn, the oak tree and a heart all feature prominently to represent strength, luck, power and hope for change to make the environment better for the future.

The reason palladium was chosen for the collection is because it's naturally white, light and strong making it the perfect choice.

John Stark, Chairman for the Palladium Alliance International, said: "We wanted Dame Vivienne Westwood to showcase Palladium to the world because of her continued exploration and reinterpretation of history, combined with a tireless individualism which has cemented her reputation as the UK's most culturally significant fashion designer. We believe this creativity and individuality makes her the perfect fit for the brand and her designs will complement our metal."
