I’ve been looking at large statement pieces for quite some time now. Ever since I tried on a some pieces by my lovely friend Jen (aka Ruby Browning) and fell in love with her Panoptes collection. I still have a while to wait until I can get my sticky fingers on a Panoptes piece. But today I saw this gorgeous riot of chunky colour, put aside all fears of statements and it promptly became mine!
It’s handmade out of resin by a Brazilian designer called Sobral. I found it in an interesting boutique in Chambéry called Princesse Nubie (3 rue de la Trésorerie, Chambéry, France. 0479253014).
The owner of this sweet store stocks a wide range of gorgeous jewellery and some truly unique pieces (if you’re looking for earings shaped like candy, or for some beautiful resin pieces head here). Not all of it to my taste but I could have quite easily have purchased more. I left having been clearly advised by the owner about how to take care of my new jewellery and carrying it encapsulated in a very pretty cloth bag that the owner made herself.
I couldn’t be happier with it!
We’re going to Gruyères tomorrow and so I’m now going to put together an outfit that includes my new necklace.
