The magic behind the makings: Iceland’s unique beauty uncovered
My pieces from the AW17 Northern Lights collection are designed with inspiration from my wonderful journey through Iceland last year. Before jetting off in search of the Northern Lights, I already knew I was in for a treat, not only because of the majestic landscape but because it’s the only country that believes in elves: a wonderful thought.
My first stop was a visit to the impressive waterfalls of the south coast. I can’t explain the sheer force of the water tumbling over the clifftops but it is a sight to behold. When the water crashes into the pool below, it emits a fabulous array of colour, not to mention the gorgeous rainbow that is frequently overhead.
The AW17 Northern Lights bracelets were designed specifically with the Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls in mind! The colours are reflected in the intricate Swarovski beading of the Signature Blisski Silver Swarovski Crystal Bracelet in Clear Crystal Aurora Borealis and the Signature Blissful Swarovski Heart Crystal Silver Charm Bracelet.
You’ll find plenty of Labradorite detail in the AW17 collection, and two of my favourite pieces include the Aurora Bracelet Stack and the Labradorite Feather Silver Charm Bracelet, two classic items that add a touch of elegance to any outfit. It was important to include Labradorite in my designs as the colour reminds me of the beautiful, rugged landscapes that I loved so much in Iceland plus, this powerful semi-precious stone is said to relieve anxiety and stress, as well as balancing your hormones.
The stand out piece from this collection is the Swarovski Sparkle Silver Bracelet in Jet Black Aurora Borealis. This, of course, was designed to reflect the luminescent natural phenomenon that is the Aurora Borealis. As beautiful as the Northern Lights across a dark sky, ‘Jet Black Aurora Borealis’ crystals show off a gorgeous rainbow of colour amongst deep blue, simply shimmering on your wrist.
For those wanting to carry with them a spark of Mother Nature’s power as a reminder of their own, the Northern Lights collection is truly essential.
