THE DESIGN SERIES | PART THREE

PART THREE OF THE DESIGN SERIES.

IN THIS THIRD PART OF OUR DESIGN SERIES WE LOOK AT ELEMENTS BEHIND DESIGNS OF OUR JEWELLERY. NINA TALKS TO US ABOUT ENVISIONING & CONSIDERING HOW FINAL DESIGNS WILL ULTIMATELY CONNECT TO THE WEARER & THE IMPORTANCE OF INSTILLING A "FOREVER & EVER" LIFE INTO OUR PIECES.

"WHEN I NEED AN EXTRA BOOST OF INSPIRATION I ALWAYS LOOK THROUGH MY OLD SKETCHBOOKS. I STILL HAVE SOME FROM BACK IN 2014 WHEN I USED TO CREATE CRAZY COSTUME JEWELLERY."

THE WAVES RING SET.

AN OLD SKETCHBOOK IS ACTUALLY WHERE I DISCOVERED THE IDEA OF THE WAVES RINGS SET,  FOR SOME REASON THIS DESIGN WAS OVERLOOKED INITIALLY... I SLIGHTLY TWEAKED AND REFINED THE IDEA, CREATING THE SET WE HAVE TODAY.

WITH DESIGNING I ALWAYS LIKE TO THINK OF THE PERSON WEARING THE PIECE...AND BY DESIGNING THIS AS A PAIR /SET IT TAKES THE FUSS OUT OF STYLING AND INSTANTLY GIVES A SENSE OF EASE AND EFFORTLESSNESS WHEN WORN - WHICH MAKES THESE RINGS SPECIAL. 

I LOVE HEARING STORIES OF HOW CUSTOMERS ARE WEARING THESE RINGS, WEARING THEM TOGETHER FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS, SPLITTING THEM WITH THEIR FRIENDS OR LOVED ONES OR, EVEN WEARING THEM AS TEMPORARY WEDDING BANDS. 

THE TWISTED HOOPS.

THIS STYLE HAS CHANGED AND EVOLVED WITH FLASH. INSPIRED BY THE 1980S ERA OF COSTUME JEWELLERY, IT’S BASED ON THE ORIGINAL ‘DOOR  KNOCKER’ STYLE. THE GOAL WAS TO CREATE A BOLD, LIGHTWEIGHT STATEMENT HOOP, THAT LOOKS HEAVY AND IS FUN. 

THIS IS A CASTED STYLE WHICH IS HOLLOW AND MADE OF TWO PARTS THAT ARE SOLDERED TOGETHER TO CREATE THE SHAPE. SINCE RELEASING THE TWISTED HOOPS IN 2017 WE HAVE MADE MANY IMPROVEMENTS, INCLUDING A NEW HINGE CLASP AND SHRINKING IT SLIGHTLY TO SHAVE GRAMS OFF THE WEIGHT, SO IT’S LIGHTER AND REALLY EASY WEARING.

I WEAR THIS DAILY - RIGHT NOW IT’S MY GO TOO WITH MY WINTER KNITS.

THE GALAXY NECKLACE.

MOST DON’T KNOW THIS, BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY MY DRAWING ON THE COIN. IT'S A HAND SKETCH OF A GALAXY (WHICH WE TIDIED UP SLIGHTLY, HAHAH) THAT'S TAKEN DIRECTLY OUT OF MY SKETCHBOOK. 

IT’S A SPECIAL PIECE TO ME, AS IT HAS OUR ORIGINAL ‘FOIL’ HAND BEATEN TEXTURE ON THE REVERSE. BACK IN 2014 WHEN I DID JEWELLERY, EVERYTHING HAD THIS TEXTURE SO IT’S KIND OF A NOD TO THIS TIME WHERE I WAS TRYING TO FIND MY FEET IN DESIGNING AND REFINING MY AESTHETIC. THE BEAUTY OF THIS PIECE IS IT’S GREAT FOR LAYING AND WEARING EVERY DAY AND NOW THAT IT’S NOW MADE IN 14K VERMEIL, IT IS EVEN MORE HARD WEARING.

THE SERPENT CHAIN BRACELET.

OUR SERPENT CHAIN HAS BEEN A STAPLE IN OUR COLLECTIONS SINCE 2017. A TRUE HERRINGBONE CHAIN THAT’S EASY WEARING AND SILKY, GREAT TO BE WORN SOLO OR IN A STACK OF YOUR FAVOURITE BANGLES & BRACELETS. 

THIS IS THE LAST TIME WE ARE PRODUCING THE SERPENT CHAIN BRACELET (AND NECKLACE!), AN END OF AN ERA! WE WILL BE SO SAD TO SEE IT GO!

THE MUSE EARRINGS.

THE MUSE EARRINGS ARE ULTIMATELY CHIC… RICE PEARLS THAT ARE ALL HAND DRILLED, THREADED AND THEN CONNECTED BY HAND, KEEPING EACH PEARL SINGULAR SO THAT THEY MOVE WITH YOU - THEY ARE LIKE A MINI WORK OF ART.

THE IDEA BEHIND THESE EARRINGS WAS TO HAVE A TIMELESS, STATEMENT STYLE YOU COULD WEAR TO YOUR SPECIAL OCCASION AND THEN BEYOND....IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO WEAR A STYLE AGAIN AND AGAIN…. I LOVE WEARING A REALLY CASUAL, PLAIN BLACK OUTFIT THEN PUTTING THESE ON - MAKES YOU FEEL AMAZING.
