April Giveaway...FriedaSophie necklaces


Post a comment and you’ll be in the draw for the April giveaway, from San Francisco based FriedaSophie jewellery

I’m on a bit of a roll with crystal and mineral inspired pieces. I don’t know why – I think it’s just a general reaction against all things manufactured right now, and some of these pieces for me are just here it’s at. When I come across someone in the street wearing a one off piece like this, it truly is unique, and I love that.

Anyway, Frieda Sophie jewellery is Sandra from San Francisco, who describes her work as modern and unconventional. I agree with that. This is no craft work. The tone is pretty contemporary with a nod to the early 70’s. And it’s quite hard to achieve that balance. FriedaSophie jewellery is named after her two grandmothers who were fashion and hat designers.

Sandra hand picks each stone and turns them into an original piece of art, using sterling silver and 14 carat gold - handcrafting organic modern nature based mineral stone jewellery in unusual colours.

Choose from the Peach Aragonite, the Turquoise bezel piece or the Herkimer quartz necklace. Yours to have. Courtesy of Streetandcityphotos.

The turquoise is my fav. I love the simple design and using a stone I would normally associate with leather bands and feathers. Its great! Although I wouldn't kick the quartz out of bed either!

I LOVE the "diamond" - it my birthday stone, and I know that I will never own one like this. (in fact I wouldn't want a diamond that large - way too much suffering involved in extracting it from the earth)

I don't understand how street wear has regressed back to the 1950s and 80s, you get what I mean, it's crazy! There's no original thought, much like the cinematic industry where remakes of remakes are now en vogue. All everyone is doing is remaking. Lame as.

KaT said...

I love the Herkimer quartz necklace - her website has so many amazing individual pieces! I love them all!

Zoe said...

becka said...

Ashie said...

I'm a newcomer here; I've been doing readings for my photography class about The Sartorialist and Facehunter and it's really brilliant to see New Zealaned showing off its style here :)

The beveled turquoise is absolutely beautiful - I can just imagine wearing it with an all-black outfit, it would stand out so well.

Thank you for doing what you do! It's lovely to see so much inspiration from so close to home.

I had a quartz necklace when I was younger which was my "rock", meaning anytime I had worries or fears Id clutch it for a while and transfer them to it. Instantly I felt OK again. Would love the Herkimer quartz necklace to rest my adult fears inside.

chloe said...

it has to be the first one - the colour is good enough to EAT. Love them all.
