Jewellery Loving: Lucy Folk’s Quirky Arm Candy

Jewellery-Lucy-Folk-5

I love layering on bracelets to create the perfect arm party, whether it’s stacks of bangles, delicate Astley Clarke bracelets, or colourful friendship bracelets that remind me of the days I spent hours making them with my friends when I was younger.

I was recently introduced to the quirky designs of Australian jewellery designer Lucy Folk, who is known for her fun, culinary-influenced themed pieces that have caught the attention of a number of stylish fashion editors and celebrities.

Since launching her label in 2007, the Melbourne-based designer has created collections inspired by pizza, pasta, spices, and tropical fruit – it seems that all the best meals are worthy of wearing around the neck or wrist.

Her designs have included mushroom earrings, dough rings, an incredible pizza collar, metallic crocheted pineapples, watermelon bracelets complete with pips, and lime sliced cocktail necklaces – all of them look good enough to eat and just checking them out her website made me hungry!

While at a lunch recently at Rainbowwave’s showroom, I checked out her latest collection and fell in love with her unusual and colourful ‘wearable food’ designs, especially the gorgeous taco-adorned friendship bracelets and the stackable multicoloured crochet bracelets.

Seriously what’s not to love – combining fashion with food – that’s like two of my favourite things!!!

Would you wear a taco-adorned friendship bracelet?

Lucy Folk’s is currently stocked in Harvey Nichols, Matches, and Celestine Eleven in the UK, but you can find her full stock sold through her own website www.lucyfolk.com where there is a set flat rate of $25 AUS for international shipping.

I found a few pieces I loved on Matches website:

Arm Candy: Pandora’s Valentine’s Day Collection

I am a bit of bracelet hoarder, I have lots, whether it is a Thomas Sabo charm bracelet with a tiny Eiffel Tower or an elephant, a Chamilia bracelet filled with cute marble-effect charms, or just plain stacks of silver and gold bangles – I love a little arm candy.

When John Greed Jewellery asked if I had a Pandora bracelet I went through my jewellery box and was surprised I didn’t, basically I had everything but, so they kindly sent me a red leather bracelet and a gorgeous Love Heart charm from Pandora’s Valentine Collection and I just can’t stop wearing it.

What I love about this bracelet is the simplicity and elegance of it that it is just perfect to wear every day, but what makes it extra special for Valentine’s Day is the Love Heart charm which is just so adorable featuring ‘love’ engraved in six different languages. So you have Liebe, Amore, Koerlighed on one side and Amour, Love and Amor on the other.

I don’t think I have taken this off since I got it and I can’t wait to add more beads to my collection – they literally have one for every occasion and hey if it is good enough for Girls Aloud it is definitely good enough for me!!!

Have you got a Pandora bracelet? Let me know what your favourite charms are as I can’t wait to add more.
