Our Creative Director, Fernando DaSilva designed an “out of the ordinary collection of jewelry that is delightfully different, chic and of course trendsetting.”
Here is a closer look at just one of the six models he styled. The unique embroidered dresses were hand picked by Fernando in Brazil in January.
Golden Butterscotch is modeled by Emily Jill Poulter. Her standout pom pom earrings, necklace, bracelets and rings all require some detailed review.
The necklace was spectacular. A completely new design by Fernando taking advantage of the Preciosa Ripple (TM) beads being stacked amongst glass lava beads.
The colours in this tiered necklace are fresh and the Global Chic vibe is beautifully illustrated.
Emily’s wrists were well adorned. One hand modeled a signature Fernando tapestry cord wrap bracelet highlighting black, white, ivory and gold. A color palette we think is Très Chic! Our Global Chic channel beads are showcasing seed beads in colours to match. Her rings were already handcrafted and are being sold in our John Bead Outlet.
The wrap bracelet was paired with this TO DIE FOR beaded cuff.
The cuff is a collaborative effort between Lena Gillespie of Purple Lace Designs and Fernando. It is the perfect example of what happens when one designer takes a look at another designer’s project.
Originally, Lena had created a very large wire and beaded leaf shape for a different project with Fernando. Fernando saw the cuff in the shape and added bells and tassels to close the cuff. A wonderful result!
We’ll continue featuring our runway looks throughout the Spring.
