My love for fine jewellery is probably genetic. When he first came to Canada, my late grandfather became a jeweler. I learned to appreciate jewellery at a very young age.
I’ve always admired Anne Sportun’s gift for modern jewellery design. According to her website, her inspiration comes from the “...natural world around me.” I’m not sure how she makes the pieces in her collection, but they all look hand-made and have wonderful organic shapes. Each item is more beautiful than the next.
What I like most about her designs are their casual look and feel, while being very special at the same time. Casual elegance at it’s finest. Unfortunately, she opened her Experimetal Jewellery shop the year after our wedding.
So this week, I’m wishing for an engagement ring and wedding band makeover. I’m not sure exactly which of Anne’s designs I’d choose. I’ve included some of my favorites for you to ponder. Prices start around $1,400 and up. Which would you choose? Let me know. Leave a comment.
Well, great news. PR blogger extraordinaire, Ed Lee told me Experimetal is having a special sale. (Just in case you’re wondering, Experimetal isn’t one of his clients.) Thanks for sharing, Ed.
I’m not sure if I’ll remodel my rings, but I may be able to own a piece of wonderful jewellery at an affordable price.
