Paris fashion week has finished, the sun is shining, daffodils are blooming... spring has officially arrived! Therefore, the time has come to embrace the upcoming trends of S/S 2012.
At the start of a new season the choice of which trends to adopt can be overwhelming, particularly when, in the case of this season, trends range from Gatsby Glamour to Tribal Prints. Do not panic. We have stumbled across a boutique jeweller whose jewellery fuses this season’s biggest fashions.
JOLITA JEWELLERY create statement pieces using Swarovski crystals, gold, silver, precious and semi-precious stones, silk, cotton, coral and trinkets found on the jewellers’ travels.
There are rings that are big, bright and bold but are adorned with skulls to stop them from being garish. The skulls represent voodoo from its original interpretation - 'veneration of the dead as well as protection against evil'.
These incredibly unique pieces are all handmade by siblings Algis Abromaitis and Jolita Abromaityte in London. Compliments and praise from customers, not only about the jewellery but also of Jolita's 'considerate and excellent service'.
The complete collection is available from http://www.jolitajewellery.com/.
A piece from Jolita's jewellery is the perfect way to ease oneself into spring 2012.
