Black Pearl opened in 2005 and is owned and run by designer Fiona Deffenbaugh. She began making jewellery in 2002 while studying at London College of Fashion, selling it at both Portobello and Spitalfields markets before opening the Black Pearl shop off Carnaby Street.
Inspired by a love of 1940s and 1950s glamour, old tattoos, charms and trinkets Fiona creates a vast range of jewellery, focusing largely on simple chains and gorgeous pendants. As well as Black Pearl’s single pendants, About your Dress loves the clustered designs, featuring many pendants grouped on one chain.
Here are a few of About your Dress’ favourites:
