A Pastel Bouquet from Philippe Ferrandis

by Alexandra May | June 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

French favourite Philippe Ferrandis releases eight new ranges per season, each with a highly distinctive vibe. With Philippe having worked as a jewellery designer since 1986, it's incredible that every collection still surprises with its individuality and freshness - he never seems to run out of inspiration. I can never wait until the galleries for his newest designs appear online - it's trimming down my order that's the tricky part! The first from the SS16 collection to feature on alexandramay.com are the beautiful opal blooms of the 'Daisy' collection.
These frosted treats are fitted with a clip-on backing to ensure they don't weigh down piercings. If you're wary of clip-ons, try Philippe's - they're the most comfortable I've discovered so far. As always with Ferrandis earrings, it's the blend of textures and finishes that distinguish them. The iridescent daisy centres (above) are made in polished Mother of Pearl...
While the Swarovski drops in this pair are made in opaline crystal, a ghostly, almost phosphorescent material that reflects light more smoothly than its semi-precious stone counterpart.
Having collaborated with Givenchy, Chanel and Balmain, Philippe is an expert in producing couture costume jewellery. What I love is the stunning simplicity of his designs.

La Maitresse's Forbidden Fruit

by Alexandra May | April 28, 2016 | 0 Comments

This month I've been hard at work getting a very exciting new collection online: the exotic, natural 'La Maitresse' range by Konplott. Below are some photographs from the shoot, along with artists' depictions of wild nature that fit with the theme of this jewellery.

This vibrant creeping vine ring is fitted with an adjustable band to fit any size finger. The whole range seems to be modelled on plants that are beautiful but deadly, like the venus flytrap...... only with rows of Swarovski crystals in place of spiked borders.

Designer Miranda Konstaninidou created on-trend ear cuff design for the range. The earring can be gently manipulated to fit any ear and stays in place thanks to two gentle clips. Looks edgy, feels incredibly comfy!

The jewellery is very sturdy, fitted with high-quality Swarovski crystals and glass stones, and is crafted by hand in a Philippines studio that employs only women. Head designer Miranda personally trains each of her employees, passing on her expert knowledge and equipping them with the skills to make a good living from jewellery-making.
