There are many things that I owe to Instagram - coming across new bloggers, making new friends, honing my eye to see a picture composition in the randomest of things, staying updated about my favorite brands/websites and last, but not the least, finding out about a whole bunch of super-talented creative souls who take the word "handmade" to a whole new level!
Over the past few months, I have been fortunate to connect with numerous wonderful designers and makers who are extremely passionate about their crafts - ranging from calligraphy & lettering to jewellery making & scrapbooking - and who have inspired me hugely with their talent, skill and awesomeness!!!
One such talented girl is Kelly who makes beautiful and dainty clay jewellery under her brand Clay n Wire. Kelly handmakes an entire range of elegant necklaces, pretty earrings and lovely bracelets - all using clay, paint and metal fittings. She moulds the clay into interesting geometric shapes and forms which makes her products all the more charming. What I love about her jewellery is the fact that she uses amazingly pretty colors and combinations - her signature style being the use of classy gold accents to highlight sorbet-y pastel hues.
No wonder, I was super-excited when we decided on a collaboration. Kelly was gracious enough to send across a dainty necklace and a pair of pretty earrings.
Of course, each piece was such a thing of beauty that they demanded to be styled differently in two different outfits.
Here's the first outfit, featuring my precious Clay n Wire asymmetric tube necklace.
The earrings will follow soon!
