Meadowlark Reigns Victorious

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

 
One of the best things about this time of year is getting a sneak preview of what's coming for Spring/Summer 2013/14, and last week I was fortunate enough to attend Meadowlark Jewellery's preview of their stunning new collection.  As well as getting to view the range up close, we were also treated to a tour of the workshop and got to witness how some of the pieces are created, which was really fascinating as all of Meadowlark's jewellery is made on-site.  
 
Clever designing couple Greg Fromont and Claire Hammon specialise in making unique jewellery with a playful edge and this new range is really something special.  Entitled 'Veni Vidi Vici' which is Latin for 'I came, I saw, I conquered' and infamously said by Roman ruler Julius Caesar in 47BC, the collection is a striking mix of stunning pieces themed around battle and victory.
 
The devil's claw pieces which were inspired by leather armour represent the former 'Veni' and are definitely battle-ready.  Amusingly the eyeball pieces are a play on 'Vidi', literally meaning 'I saw' and are actually rather charming as eyeballs go, definitely conversational pieces.  My favourite pieces were the beautiful wreath pieces, which represent victory 'Vici', the amazing oversized necklace was the standout for me.  I also adored the incredibly detailed wreath earrings too, you would certainly feel victorious wearing them!
 
Fittingly young singer Lorde wears the wreath necklace in her new video for 'Royals' and I couldn't think of a better adornment for her whilst performing that particular song.  I'm certain this unique range will find it's way into the collections and hearts of Meadowlark's fans come it's release in a couple months time and I for one, can't wait to shop it.
