Necklaces by The Giving Keys from £25, UNICEF Lobster Bangle by Alex and Ani £33

As well as being an amazing platform for the arts, festivals are effective for publicising non-profits and charitable organisations- in 2013 Glastonbury raised £2m for charities such as Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid! Support and demonstrate your passion for causes you care about with jewellery. The Giving Keys employ and support those transitioning out of homelessness with their unique recycled designs. Fellow US designer Alex and Ani also work to support charities, such as UNICEF, with their Charity by Design bangles.

Nature’s Way by Daisy London from £29, Swatches from £32

 

Alongside the amazing performances and worthy causes, it is the simple joys of camping in the beautiful countryside that make British festivals a wonderful experience. Don your flower crown, feel the grass under your feet and enjoy the sun in your eyes. Channel the carefree spirit of the ’60s with the new Nature’s Way collection by Daisy London. For a statement flourish, we love these vibrant floral designs by Swatch.

TURQUOISE JEWELLERY

Turquoise is a bold summer colour that looks striking against gold and silver, brings depth and interest to jewellery without the sparkle and looks brilliant with a tan, making it a must-have holiday accessory! The semi-precious stone Turquoise is believed to be a healing stone and a symbol of good fortune and friendship.
