With the futuristic trend appearing to be here to stay, innovative shapes and materials are in high demand in the world of accoutrements. My craving for boldly audacious yet minimalistic jewellery is at a true peak. After my last post on the heavenly concept that is perspex accessories, I stumbled across a serious gem. A real keeper.
Enter Alexandra Blak, the brand by Australian based designer Alexandra Anson. Her collection consists of covet-worthy, individually hand-crafted lucite, silver, textile and stone pieces. If you didn’t check the brand out last time, you’re lucky kids because here’s you second chance!
Anson grew up making jewellery from spare pieces of furniture, and likes to think of her pieces as “wearable art”. Given her use of sleek shapes and textures, I’d say that wearable art is, indeed, the right term. Daring, yet ever so wearable.
With a palette consisting of black, white, silver and the occasional pop of neon yellow and pink, its no wonder Blak’s cool minimalist work has already been featured in the likes of Cosmo, Grazia and Oyster.
Some of her pieces have also been worn by the popular How Two Live bloggers Jess and Steff. Not bad for someone with no formal training.
One of my top picks is the Zara Torque Clear choker, we all know I’m partial to a little perspex in my life!
