Ropes and Necks

Oh hi there. It's been a while.

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.
