It’s not just gold that shimmers.
Jewels made with wood, ebony, horn and “green” materials are super contemporary and glamorous. Mark Fast’s bracelets for his Spring/Summer collection have an ethnic feel and are must-haves for the summer season.
It’s a priority to find “style” in all natural jewels that are eco-sustainable too.
Many designers are using their great creativity to experiment with new forms. Two examples are Ema Fernandes and her bracelet made of bark and the famous Anthony Roussel, a real and true wood sculptor who creates rings that are considered works of art.
Raffaella Manelli’s cross made from natural materials has, as always, a provocative design and is rivaled only by Tarina Tarantino who mixes wood with precious stones.
Monique Pean, established eco-friendly designer is inspired by indigenous cultures and is showing a bracelet with an Indian totem pole flavor.
In order not to leave out Italian design, Amlè’s artisanal creations are the looks for summer with ever changing shapes; horn earrings and necklaces and in ebony for an eco-chic touch.
