No point making excuses, it's a New Year and who knows, new habits might just form....and anyway, there are two groovy necklace aficionados I need to share with you.
I saw these beauties via The Design Files Daily today - hand made from neoprene and rope by a couple of Melbourne lasses who go by the name of Witu (surely I can call them lasses when I am 15+ years older than they are?).
I love the mix of glamourous style with industrial materials in these pieces. The Witu range includes clutch bags, must-have backpacks in the best colour combos, and dip dyed totes.
Chain Necklace $44 in a range of colours
Pink Neoprene & Rope Necklace $65
So, seeing this daily post of inspiration from Lucy at The Design Files, (is there anyone out there who doesn't subscribe to her blog?) it reminded me of a beautiful necklace of the rope variety that I received for Christmas (thanks Vivo!).
It came via another Melbourne marvel, Emily Dornbusch who has a business called Emeldo and my goodness I'm not exaggerating when I tell you it took me AGES to decide on which of Emily's creations to share with you here. I can't get enough of the fluro this summer. Will it be here next year?? hmmm, I'm doubtful.
Here's a taste. Prices start from $29.95.
In Emily's own words, "Hand Made, Vibrant and Fresh".
I couldn't agree more.
