Monochromatiques

at first when browsing through Paris based designer Isabelle’s shop Monochromatiques i simply appreciated the fine minimalist jewellery – and then i began to notice sublime little surprises: a tiny brooch of matchsticks, a curtain blowing in the wind, a popcorn pin, assemble-it-yourself jewellery inspired by baby’s building bricks, an ode to the…

Modern Weaving

a beautiful label by Tiffani Anne Williams, Modern Weaving makes bold brass jewellery and leather bags. A disciplined respect for the minimal is the primary ethos of Modern Weaving. The leather bag collection artfully fuses ancient basketry techniques into modern functional shapes. The incorporation of laser and die cutting technologies…

Benu Made

here’s something fantastic to put a smile on your face this Friday. you’ll probably recognise Benu Made, as i have featured statement pieces from this Prague based jewellery line before (particularly the cactus & hand earrings). designer Pauline has just released a fun lookbook for her new collection a | symmetry,…

WAIF

I have been eagerly watching Gisele Human’s WAIF unfurl from a small passion project to a now fully fledged jewellery line, and am so happy to exclusively debut this wonderful new shoot and her online shop!

Datter

new Datter, new Datter! that’s what i shouted in my mind when i got a mail from Kaye Blegvad with her new collection for Datter Industries. she has jewels in both silver and brass, so whatever may strike your fancy (i’m a brass girl, myself). i have a feeling the…

Matisse Eyes

it’s been 2 years since the The Cut-Outs exhibition debuted at the Tate in London, and Matisse has been on everyone’s lips ever since. i see his influence pop up all the time, from wallpaper to kids clothes. the latest: some cool jewellery and apparel items that i felt i needed to share.…

Jewels Sept

are you familiar with my Jewels posts? well sometimes i get overwhelmed with the wonderful array of new jewellery out there, and rather than dedicating a post to every single designer i compile a compendium of sorts instead. i’ve been numbering them in French (who KNOWS why) and this is…

Kate Miss

i thought i’d give you a little update on what the multitalented designer and thing-maker Kate Miss has been up to! a new jewellery collection and a bunch of prints, that’s what. and even though she doesn’t blog like she used to, her music mixes are still stellar.

Crescioni Fall 2016

aaaaaaah, Crescioni. can you feel that? yes, it’s the smell of fresh leather and brass. Crescioni’s Fall 2016 collection is filled with these things, including all new handbags. better yet they now have an online shop, when previously you could only view their collections online. score! Crescioni handbags are an extension…

Nandi Naya

i discovered jewellery line Nandi Naya randomly while browsing one day, and judging by the name i wondered to myself if there was a South African link somewhere. turns out the designer behind the label is Hleziphansi Zita, and the line is named for her daughter, Nandi. Hleziphansi Zita was born and…

Seaworthy: Gravity

aah it’s always so wonderful for me to see new work from long favourite designers. Marisa Howard of Seaworthy has just added some sterling silver pieces to her latest collection, Gravity. i looooove those large hoop earrings. Sterling silver has a rich history, dating back to the 12th century. I’ve…

Coyote Negro: Serie No. 2

in the past few years i have only worn gold or bronze jewellery, i don’t know why – i just went off silver after many years of wearing it. now, i feel like i may be swinging back to the lighter side… and no one can convince me more than…

Hómini

Hómini is a jewellery line designed by two architect-trained sisters, Deborah & Dinorah Kaiser, who live in Montevideo, Uruguay. i love this lookbook so much because it reminds me of Tom & Jerry, or even this scene from Alice in Wonderland. a pretty surreal setting for such refined, minimalist jewellery.…

Annie Costello Brown

Annie Costello Brown’s jewellery line ACB is full of dramatic & oversized hand cut hammered pieces; made from silver, brass and gold, fit for Frida Kahlo or an Egyptian queen. Annie has an interesting back story: growing up on a houseboat in the San Francisco Bay area in the seventies, surrounded by artists,…
