Jewel of the day: Sappho by Kim Smiley Metallic Lace Bracelet

On to other unconventional materials for jewellery (though not nearly as unconventional in use as yesterday’s post). Canada’s Kim Smiley makes lace pieces that can be worn (quite beautifully) as jewellery.

She notes, “Sapphô by Kim Smiley is dedicated to beauty for the public good. One recognizes a Sapphô creation in the blink of an eye. Each quintessentially feminine piece is handmade and one of a kind. Conceived as wearable works of art, the Collection marries antique and metallic lace; gems, vintage objects and precious metals. Sapphô is a platform for poetry and the public good. The company provides employment opportunities for marginalized women at a living wage. Every design in the Collection is inspired by a poet, famous or emerging, and accompanied by a poem. Taking its social mission to the street, Sapphô hosts “trunk shows” in the homes of patrons; a percentage of proceeds are then donated to charity. Think beauty for the public good. For further information or to purchase a custom made work of art from Sapphô, please email kim [!at]”

This metallic lace bracelet is available for Cdn $195 from Etsy.
