A few days ago I received a little package all the way from the other part of the world, and believe it or not I opened the package and tried to smell if I could smell the sea breeze, the salty air which it brought along from Sydney, Australia!
I am so torn between missing Sydney and loving London, that I feel I want a bit of both in my world! Sigh, only if wishes were horses….
Anyway, what the package actually contained was this little Resin ring my friend,Kaz sent me.Thankfully,I could actually see some sand particles trapped in Resin, which Kaz calls her “Stone and Grit” collection made in lovely Clovelly, Sydney.
I know Kaz since my Sydney design days,and I remember how I would hear stories of these Resin jewellery she had been working on, that was when Gem Lettuce was being nurtured to face the big wide world.
Now Gem Lettuce has grown into a full-fledged label with a unique handwriting and look.
Gem Lettuce collaborated with Sydney based fashion label Uscari for the Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week for their latest SS12 collection showcased in Sydney during the fashion week on May 4th 2012. Click here for the video.
The jewellery compliments the main range collection, aptly called ‘Submerged in Silence’ with an aquatic/underwater theme using all materials like seaweed, grit,bibs made of ropes in fishermen knots with translucent pendants in clear sections of colour and textures playing through the resin.
The range consists of Rings, pendants and bracelets in Colourful Mosaic, Abstract floral (which have real flowers, frozen in time in resin) and the Stone collection with sand from Clovelly Beach.
