I'm super excited to be launching my new 'all gold' collection today. It's been months in the making, and I'm really pleased at the turn my designs have taken. You can find the full collection in my Etsy Shop and photos below.
For this collection I wanted to move towards designs that are more grown up, but still really unique and out there. All of the new designs are centred around beautiful, shiny gold leather. It's actually often mistaken for metal - but a lot lighter to wear, and much more malleable for me, as the designer, to play around with and develop.
I do love colourful leather, but there's something about the simplicity, smoothness and shininess of this self-sufficient gold that has allowed me to be braver in terms of shapes, layering and even reshaping the flat leather into three-dimensional cones of all sizes. The simplicity coupled with the originality of the pieces makes them, I think, quite versatile and the perfect accompaniment for work or play.
I haven't been shy when it comes to scale and size, so there are plenty of big statement earrings and necklaces - contrasting with the simplicity of the leather and soft, twisted cotton rope in a couple of designs.
All pieces from the new collection are designed, hand cut and assembled by me - it can be laborious work at times, but coupled with a good podcast or audiobook, is also a very soothing and relaxing process.
I've really enjoyed the challenge of developing a coherent collection this time, and I hope you guys like it. My personal favourites are pictured below, with links to the product pages in my Etsy shop.
I would love to hear what you think - please feel free to leave a comment here or get in touch via social media!
