A little while ago, we spoke to Peaches + Keen who create beautiful jewellery pieces inspired by David Bowie. Read a little bit about these talents designers here.

Do you listen to music while working, and if so, what?
Our studio soundtrack changes depending on what we are working on. A day of painting requires concentration so might call for Sufjan Stevens latest album Carrie & Lowell, Psychic by Darkside or something instrumental like Jean Michelle Jarre.
On the days when we are making fun and colourful earrings we've been known to sing along very badly to sentimental Aussie favourites Courtney Barnett, Dick Diver, Eddy Current and Twerps. And some days we'll work to the sound of the birds in the trees or a sneaky episode of Arrested Development.
How did David Bowie influence your designs?
Hasn't David Bowie in The Labyrinth subliminally influenced the creativity of every single person who grew up in the 80s? We admire his ability to push creative boundaries and not be defined by a single genre or aesthetic. His work is so timeless and iconic. Plus, he's DAVID BOWIE.
If you could design David Bowie a piece of jewellery, what would it be?
We'd probably need to make him a Bowie-esque crown and matching livery collar (those ridiculous necklaces mayors wear). It would be colourful and shiny. We would possibly also need to make him some sort of sceptre to complete the look.
What other rock icon would you like to design for?
We think we could make Flava Flav a pretty unreal clock necklace.
