Lucy Folk Gold Pearl Diver Bracelet

Lucy Folk Gold Pearl Diver Bracelet

I spent the weekend doing only things that make me happy and it was the best ever. On Sunday I walked to Gordan’s Bay from Randwick and decided, why stop? I’ve been so unbelievably lazy for the past couple of months. So I walked all the way to Bondi. I have to admit it was a stretch for me. But I’m so glad I did. While I was there I finally had a chance to grab something delicious from Mr Topper’s Toast Bar; Which as the name suggests specialises in Avocado Toast! I love breakfast food so this place has been on my ‘must-visit’ list for a while now.

I also had the chance to satisfy my current gold obsession which first began in LA a few months ago, when I was gifted the most beautiful Chanel bag with gold hardware. Shortly after I selected some pieces from Rumi Neely’s Label You Are Am I; Including a gold lighter and choker with gold detail. Since returning to Sydney it’s gotten slightly out of control. Gold homewares, gold hardware on my new Chanel wallet and finally a trip to freedom to purchase a beautiful brass (gold) coloured lamp.

Yesterday in Bondi came across such a stunning bracelet by Lucy Folk in her new Bondi Boutique Playa (Spanish for beach). For those who aren’t familar with Lucy Folk, she is best known for her bold imagination and contemporary designs adorned with pearls, crotchet and unique textures. The Pearl Diver Bracelet is one of the label’s most popular designs. Crocheted by hand using metallic-gold thread and accented with ten freshwater pearls. I usually wear delicate pieces of jewellery however I’m willing to make an exception with this incredible piece. You can find it online to purchase here.

PetiteGrand Jewellery

Unique in its simplicity, australian jewellery label PetiteGrand offers effortless style with pieces that can be worn during the day and then transcend into evening. They are little pieces of timeless luxury transcending the seasons, you can build on and layer to create your own expression. PetiteGrand designer Tanja is influenced by everything around her and designs pieces by simply creating by hand what she would want to wear, everyday pieces, the purity of geometric shapes and the understated elegance of precious metals and silk cord…

How did you come to designing PetiteGrand ?
My love of jewellery design combined with my love of making/creating something with my hands.

What is the meaning behind the name, PetiteGrand ?
The jewellery I do is very fine and delicate.. small… petite. The grand came from my love of the word GRAND – when something is beautiful, big and grand. I believe small can still be very grand.

What process do you go through in designing your pieces ?
I pick a theme for the collection to assist me to rein in my creative thought process, otherwise my brain goes crazy with the possibilities. Then I decide on what looks, shapes, metals and colours I would like to do. Then the real fun starts, I start making and designing the pieces.

Who are your pieces designed for ?
I guess someone who sees beauty in the little things around us.

Do you design pieces for yourself or your own style ?
Yes, initially I do design them for me. Every item I design I have to love and want to wear myself.

How would you describe your own style ?
Very similar to my label, simple, classic, understated  – but it always gets noticed.

What are your essential pieces within your closet ?
My jeans, Bassike t’shirts, Dylan Kain bag and Zimmermann swimwear.

What is your most cherished piece in your own jewellery collection ?
A pair of earrings my mother gave me when I was 5, an amazing Mawi necklace and the 1st silver ring I made.

What inspires you ?
Absolutely everything – Inspiration mainly comes when I’m not looking for it.

What outfit should PetiteGrand be teamed with ?
Anything from jeans and a t-shirt to drinks with friends, to your wedding day. That’s what I think is so wonderful about the jewellery, it fits into every aspect of your life.

What is the underlying philosophy of your brand ?
The philosophy of the brand is to design and create beautiful pieces that are unique and simple but always make a statement.

What does the future hold for PetiteGrand ?
Hopefully lots of wonderful things!
