Gift Guides:

Elegance

 

We love putting together the Xmas Gift Guide and because we couldn’t limit ourselves to one, we have compiled three!  The three Guides are based on Elegance, Vibrance & Mono.  What I love about the Guides is that you can be a fan or collector of pieces from each, after all we are dynamic!  We feel confident you will find something special for yourself or the people you love.  I hope you can make yourself a cuppa, sit back and peruse our selections.Featured above is a peek at some of the classical lines and elegant pieces we have in store.  The work featured above is by Rebecca Overmann.  Rebecca uses organic shapes and textured finishes, different metals and highlights, occasionally with a sprinkling of diamonds. From L to R:  Full Moon Pendant, Celestial Pendant, Double Lily Pad Earrings, Dissolving Tear Drop Ring and Oxidised Spine Bangle, Spine Bangle and 14ct Gold Spine Bangle.

There is something striking about strong contrasts, they are visually appealing and draw the eye.  We have assembled a window into some of the pieces we have in store, it may be the contrast of semi precious stones like labradorite or rutile quartz or the interplay between sterling silver and oxidised sterling silver.   What we love about these pieces is that they will go with anything in your wardrobe.From L to R (clockwise): Victoria Bangles Sterling Silver and Oxidised by Priya Himatsingka, Caviar Labradorite and Freshwater Pearl Ring by Louise Douglas, Caviar Pendant by Louise Douglas, Silver Haze Bangle with Rutile semi precious stone and Keshi Pearl by Mary Odorcic, Sparkler Pendant by Priya Himatsingka, Midnight Peacock Ring by Priya Himatsingka, Sparkler Earrings by Priya Himatsingka.

New in Store: Sustainable jewellery by Shauna Mayben

I love Shauna Mayben’s work, the ethos behind it, how she uses rescued images and brings them to life, with upcycled perspex and then as a shining highlight, she masterfully adds recycled sterling silver, the result – awesome jewellery that is sustainable, contemporary, unique and very appealing!

So I was very excited to get some new pieces into the store from the following Collections:

‘Money Makes the World Go Round’: Shauna plays with notions of money, value and beauty; using currency from around the world, upcycled perspex and recycled sterling silver.

‘He Whispered Sweet Nothings in Her Ear’: Shauna uses old romantic novels and images of flowers, cutting them and rearranging them to create a new perspective on the meaning of flowers.  Pictured above is the Eternal Pendant – it has two looks to the one piece, which means lots of versatility!

‘Penny For your Thoughts’: Shauna use imprints from currency to create delightful and eye catching earrings from recycled sterling silver.

Shauna says of her work: “The items I make are of high quality materials and manufacturing using traditional craftsman techniques insuring stability, durability and a long life of wear and tear.   Each piece therefore becomes an artistic, one of a kind collector’s item. My items also have an intellectual narrative telling a story…it’s not just a bauble to adorn.”
