Pascale Monovoisin x


I like to think that way back, when the rules of the world were decided, there was a little subsection that was quietly written into stone which read, And for summer there will be a certain type of jewellery that will look and feel right, sing of sunshine, long days and blue skies. These pieces by Pascale Monovoisin belong to that heady group.

Is it the simplicity, the link to nature, the colours? Or is it that summer just makes choosing much easier, freer and organic?

Recycling as part of the circle of life:  Remedios Vincent uses reclaimed antiques to create new objects to honour the history and aesthetics of good craftsmanship.

As re-imagined ghosts of the past, is it any surprise that some of his creations have a macabre, Frankenstein flavour?

Iris x

In astrological terms it’s the first day of spring tomorrow, which didn’t stop winter having it’s final blast over the weekend. Not that I’m complaining: Bad weather is the perfect excuse to hibernate and indulge in some serious sofa surfing meaning I finally got to see, amongst other delights, Albert Maysles film about Iris Apfel, the beloved New York fashion icon and self-styled ‘geriatric starlet’.

Where Iris hits the sweet spot is not her age, her joy of life or her performance art.  It’s her deep seated belief that style isn’t about fashion or money or even beauty:  Style is about believing and doing.

Until watching the film, I hadn’t realised that Iris had her own shop: Rara Avis, meaning for ‘Rare bird’ where you can purchase her designs and covert a little bit of her.

But it might be more rewarding to follow her sentiments and look at life with a new set of black framed eyes.

There are still things that science can’t explain, like why one pair of earrings is just so much more than another.

But it’s something that Ernestina and Mark Potts, from Milktooth understand.  Their jewellery is a celebration of the have more, buy less philosophy.  Built on an eclectic mix of vintage and own designs their philosophy is simple: embrace your own style, buy the things you love, feel amazing.  Add in the Zeitgeist of desire and it’s a heady mix.

The cherry on the proverbial are the sensible price points (£30-£60) and effortless cool which means this is a name hidden in plain view for those oh so difficult people to buy presents for.

 

That is, if you’re prepared to give them away….

 

Mi piace.

For spoils x

With Jennie Kwon jewellery there is a lightness of touch like a kiss from an angel.

Her choice of colours add to a sense of feminine playfulness: There’s no pressure to conform to symmetry.

Within reach x

For an aspirational label, Isabel Marant manages to produce an every-now-and-then treatable jewellery range that’s naturally quaffable.


There’s an edgy, urban vibe that’s highly wearable.
