i’m almost 100% certain that i don’t need to mention that netherlands born (and malaysian based) graphic designer irene hoofs of bloesem blog fame has impeccable taste (impeccable). she consistently showcases the work of very talented artists and crafters from around the world, and has a great eye for style and quality. knowing this, can you imagine what her first jewelry collection might look like? maybe something tactile and textured with simply striking style? well, see for yourself. this is irene’s first jewelry collection for her bloesem etsy shop. it consists of twenty necklaces which incorporate a rose quartz bead, and is called the pink collection.
i think the more subtle the design, the bigger the impact. i also like the natural tones and organic energy of the collection. and i like that necklace number three (last photo) is a nonconformist who doesn’t proudly display the pink stone (which actually represents love and is associated with the heart chakra) like all the others, but still has a unique point of view. there’s always a maverick in the bunch.
and now she’s designing jewelry.
