Pete Doherty unveils jewellery line

Pete Doherty has unveiled a line of jewellery inspired by his love of antiques.
The controversial has worked with jeweller Hannah Martin on the collection, called Albion Trinketry, which includes cufflinks, rings and watch chains.
Pete first found fame with The Libertines whose debut album, Up The Bracket, was named the best British album of the past decade in a survey of musicians and music industry bigwigs by magazine NME.
But the quartet collapsed in 2004 when Carl Barat fell out with his joint frontman because of Pete's wayward behaviour as he battled with drug problems.
A recent reunion saw the band play a series of comeback gigs in the UK but Pete has never been far from controversy.
He was recently charged with cocaine possession following an investigation into the suspected fatal overdose of heiress Robin Whitehead.
The body of Miss Whitehead, granddaughter of the late Teddy Goldsmith, founder of The Ecologist magazine, was discovered at a flat in Hackney, east London, on January 24 after paramedics answered a 999 call.
Miss Whitehead had spent the last 10 days of her life filming a documentary about the singer.
