Jewellery that will floor you
Laminate went through a low period with everyone ripping it up to replace it with hardwood on floors or granite on countertops. It’s currently enjoying a resurgence in home décor, but it takes a keen, artistic eye to see the inexpensive flooring and think fine jewellery.
Devon Clark has that eye. She uses the durable, easy to wipe down material to create earrings and pendants that add edge to feminine flair. Her hand pierced designs have scalloped edges with punch-outs that are a wink to the delicacy of lace.
Matching your earrings to your countertop without committing a fashion faux pas just became a possibility. —Jaelyn Molyneux
