Mix Recipe – Amorous + Edgey

Romantic, yet fierce

She is playful and fierce and self-possessed – playful like a candy-flavoured cocktail with a very decided kick to it.  Sweet – yes.  Delicate – no.  This mix of bangles and bracelets speaks to the inner romantic in us all – without being overly fussy.

Pairing up elements that remind you of a scene from a corset drama . . .  elements like lace, ruffles, pearls, silks, ribbons are perfect.  All of these textures evoke a sense of softness, touch-able-ness and work perfectly for setting a flirty tone.

For adding to this set, you can:

~ grab a pearl necklace and wrap it several times around your wrist – this adds a luxurious element.

~ a coloured ribbon tied in a little bow around your wrist is also perfect – playing up a delicate, lady-like feel.

~ layer with your favourite timepiece/watch – this balanced out the fun with a very business like element.

~  leather plays well with the romantic look – it plays up your uniqueness and adds credibility and an industrial look to all that sweetness.

Wood + Gold + Words

Image

Flesh toned enamel, pearls and robel wood mixed up with a snippet of one of Lord Byron’s poems:

“The great art of life is sensation, to feel that we exist, even in pain.”

This set is a really eye-catching mix of shapes – all tied together with a lovely natural colourway.  It reminds me of a treasure washed up on the beach on the morning after a storm.

Last Hurrah: Retirement of Some Favourites

Out with the old … in with the new! 

In order to make some room for new designs and color palettes, some of the Piece de Resistance sets will be getting a well-earned retirement.  Since they also feature elements like ribbons, pearls and accents that have limited availability, once they are gone, they are gone!

Here are the items to be phased out:

– Golightly Enamel Bangle Set

– Golightly Gleaming Curiosities Necklace

– Savoy Truffle Bangle Set

– Savoy Truffle Gleaming Curiosities Necklace

With new designs and enamel shades on the workbench, new sets will be debuted as these all time favourites are slowly phased out. 

Have a color / style suggestion for new bangle sets?  I’d love to know!  Please leave a comment with your ideas.

Trendy Assorted Oranges

Out of all the bold shades that are trending for this autumn, my favourites are the shades of orange and saffron that are too beautiful to pass up. Whether I’m whipping up a batch of Parisian macarons or set of enameled bangles, it seems like warm citrus tones just have a magnetic draw.  It seems like the perfect color for mixing – it plays so well with mocha, pink, blue, and purple . . . is there a single color that isn’t set off by an accent of orange?
