I love jewellery and am rarely seen without my earrings, rings or bracelets. I feel naked without my jewellery. During my trip away to Bali this year, I saw it as an opportunity to explore the handmade fashion jewellery they had available that I had not seen before in Melbourne.
I stayed in Seminyak and was walking distance from many gorgeous high-end boutiques, as well as popular markets that were over stocked with jewellery from ceiling to floor with every kind of design imaginable. Below you find my favourite pieces purchased during my.
Handmade Friendship bracelets with silk and cotton coloured threads combined with metal beads.
Friendship bracelets are easy to wear as they can be worn on their own for a delicate minimalist look or stacked on the arm with other friendship bracelets for a trendier high fashion look. Personally, I like to wear my friendship bracelets alongside my precious jewellery such as my solid gold bangle and rainbow coloured sapphire tennis bracelet. I love the concept of mixing metals and colours and enjoy experimenting with the look.
Stingray bangles and gemstones
I am also a fan of jewellery made from mix metals and materials, a material that is often hard to find, that is not fake or plastic, is genuine stingray leather.
If you have you ever seen genuine stingray leather in person, you know exactly what I am talking about when I say it is one of the most beautiful leather finishes around. These chunky stingray leather bracelets really caught my attention. They were finished in sterling silver, with one design in particular finished with a stunning gemstone.
