In case you had been hiding under a Styling You rock (or just new to my blog), you know that I’m
obsessed by a big fan of statement jewellery.
To me, a statement piece is something that acts like the icing on the cake of your outfit. Really good icing. The kind of icing that makes you so get why kids just lick it off and leave the cake.
Now, the bespoke jewellery designers at Victoria-based Leoni & Vonk give good outfit icing.
They design and make contemporary pieces as well as modern-day classics.
See what I mean?
Here is what Leoni & Vonk has to say:
Leoni & Vonk is all about good quality, well-designed jewellery. Our aim is to produce interesting, on trend pieces which transcend any age barriers. Good design and quality is our mission – our pendants are hand cast in Australia and as far as possible we only use Australian suppliers– this is very important to us and believe that is one aspect of our jewellery which stands us apart from other imported labels.
The majority of our pieces are made from sterling silver with 14kt gold fill accents. We also use a smattering of semi precious stones to bring an element of colour to the pieces. The current Summer 2011/12 colour palette is inspired by the lazy, hazy days of summer – glamour beach style. Stunning statement flower pendants, brushed silver leaf necklaces and inspirational sterling silver tags all combine in a collection which has already proved extremely popular with retailers Australia wide.
We also produce a bespoke collection of one-off pieces using vintage treasures collected from all over the world – vintage watch faces, antique spoons, antique Vesta cases and photo lockets are all given a new lease of life in the Leoni & Vonk style.
Leoni & Vonk jewellery is stocked in galleries and boutiques throughout Australia and New Zealand and online in their own online store and at Young Republic. You can also find news and special offers on the designers’ Facebook page.
