STUDIO SNIPPETS: She Wore Gold (Plating)

STUDIO SNIPPETS: She Wore Gold (Plating)

....And yes it looked just as divine as solid gold. Gold Plated jewellery can be seen as the inferior wannabe to its Solid Gold sibling. I totally get it! But you know, this baby sister has some pretty cool qualities of her own! I’m going to break down a few misconceptions, because actually, gold plating at a high standard is rather beautiful, very durable and extremely affordable.  Why did my gold ring from **inserts name of fast fashion high st store** turn a different color after a week of wearing it? The process of gold plating metal varies. From fast and not so furious which wears away in...

STUDIO SNIPPETS: Making our NUR Rings

STUDIO SNIPPETS: Making our NUR Rings

Each piece of KISMET LOLA jewellery is made with so much love and care. We use a variety of techniques to design and create. This is largely dependent on the type of jewellery we are making. Sometimes I create raw and organic pieces directly into jewellers wax (as I did for the ELIXIR Collection). Other times I go straight into sawing and filing silver to create small pendents and stacking rings. With the NUR Collection, I called on some expert help from a CAD designer. The rings in this collection all have gorgeous gemstones very specifically placed to catch and...

STORIES - 4EVER HEIRLOOMS: From blue wax to a legit Heirloom

It’s definitely no secret that we LOVE (Really. Really. Love) making jewellery. Whether it starts with a scalpel and jewellers wax, or sawing directly into solid sterling silver, or even via a sketchbook drawing translated into a CAD design - its something that gets us truly excited. The type of excited you feel when you know there is your favourite dinner and a mammoth tub of ice-cream waiting for you when you get in after a day in the office. Undeniable. Mega. Happiness. Yes all that filing and sawing may ruin our nails but it honestly gives us a lot of joy! Which is why...

STORIES. Elixir. The Next Chapter. LOOKBOOK

The Next Chapter: An organic, handcrafted collection rooted in stories of humanity. Of life, loss, love and strength.    During a time when the dark nights seemed never ending, she created a vision board pinned with words of significant inspiration – daily reminders to keep going, to continue the fight, to battle for light and above all, to believe in a happy end. Today, those words have inspired this collection - Elixir, a potion of precious creations to be shared and passed on as amulets of faith and encouragement. The misshapen but stunning talismans tell tales of anguish and of hearts broken, mountains climbed and eventual healing. Lows that take us to depths of despair and rays...
