London Fashion Week: Renaissance Life
What with Friend Friday and flamenco shows I've been left with a backlog of London Fashion Week posts still in draft and have all but missed what has been happening in Paris Fashion Week! So I'm returning momentarily to indulge at looking at beautiful things, specifically jewellery.
I like a jewellery line carrying a positive message. Renaissance Life is a Swedish jewellery line which prides itself on being made with love and part of their Spring Summer 2011 Trilogy collection has taken inspiration from dreams, possibilities and happy summer days. Just the kind of talisman I want to hang around my neck to ward off the winter blues.
The Renaissance Life collection features simple, elegant shapes fashioned in shades of gold, silver and black. There are pretty angel wings whose selling point is that they can make your dreams come true (see first image), Russian doll charms, lucky horseshoe earrings, a Freedom horse, whimsical clocks, heart lockets with removable drawers for keepsakes and spherical cage lockets each holding a heart shaped river stone from the Swedish Stone Age. Ideal for those who prefer jewellery pieces that are less flamboyant but still imbued with personality.
