NEW IN: Ricardo Douaihi Necklaces and Hair Clips

by Alexandra May | October 31, 2014 | 0 Comments

Venezuelan-born Ricardo Douaihi works from his studio in Madrid, where he creates these extraordinary lace necklaces and hair clips all by hand. The lace is stiffened and embroidered with semi precious stones, mother of pearl or glass beads, and tiny Swarovski crystals.

These individual works of art are big and dramatic, but are extremely lightweight to wear. Douaihi's statement necklaces hang from pretty ribbons and look stunning against a plain cashmere jumper or white shirt. Or, dare we say it, imagine them against a simple black top for the festive season!

With his Spanish influence, Douaihi knows how to make a hair clip that actually holds huge amounts of hair, think of all those beautiful Flamenco dancers. There is nothing more frustrating than a hair clip that looks beautiful but you can't wear because it won't hold your hair. But not only that, they are a statement piece in themselves, the perfect hair jewels.

An Explosion Of Summer Colour

by Alexandra May | July 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

For the first time in as long as we can remember, we're having a FABULOUS summer! It's hot, the sun is shining (most of the time) and we can enjoy wonderful spur-of-the-moment picnics in the park, days by the sea, even just simple time in the garden. And doesn't it make life seem, well, just so much better? It's amazing what a bit of warmth and sunshine can do.

Here at Alexandra May, we're celebrating with Philippe Ferrandis' stunning 'Flower Power' collection, which couldn't be more summery if it tried. Hot shades of orange, tangerine, pink, red, turquoise, lime green and blue, burst with flowers, Swarovski crystals, and glass and perspex stones.

So let's make the most of this glorious summer while it lasts!

A Handful Of Jewels

This season, Philippe Ferrandis is the 'King' of the Swarovski crystal! Earrings are glittering with them whilst necklaces are studded in pretty shades of blue, green, turquoise, pink, purple and red. What could be more glamorous for spring?

Handmade at his studio in Paris, each Philippe Ferrandis piece is exquisitely made, and with names such as 'Waldorf' and 'Plaza', it's not hard to guess that his inspiration came from the glamour set and starlets of decades past.

So whether you opt for a pair of Swarovski twinkling earrings or a show-stopping necklace, not only will these pieces carry you right through to summer, but they are guaranteed to earn a permanent place in your jewellery box.
