Hegney displays a beautifully precise style, but her main fascination is with the colour blue, which she expresses through a varied material palette. ‘Lapis lazuli can be stone set or crushed into a powder,’ she says, ‘while jesmonite and wood can be dyed using powder pigment.’ Dream collaborator: Iris van Herpen.

‘There’s an assumption that chains are subservient to the main jewel. I enable them to achieve jewellery status on their own,’ explains Fabian, a Hungarian-born Cartier Scholarship winner whose woven chainmail piece displays a craftsman’s touch.
