If kimonos, wrap skirts and off-shoulder blouses are it trends this summer in the fashion world, statement earrings and fine jewellery depicting FACES are definitely the trends not to miss in the world of jewellery.

Face it – this trend is everywhere. Just take a look below.


The Face Ring from the Australian jewellery label Sara and Sebastian features a face design evolved from a single line drawing. The two designers are well-known for combining modernism and classicism in their approach to design and only using reclaimed gold in the label’s pieces.


The Sister Earrings by Open House Project are carved by hand from sterling silver. The designs are branded for being slightly irregular, what some also like to call perfectly imperfect.


Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader are the creative women behind the American brand Lady Grey. The girls aim to create fashion forward jewellery that brings their progressive design philosophies to the ready-to-wear market, through a distinctive use of materials and bold structures.

Another great label featuring jewellery pieces crafted so it looks like they have turned pencil drawings into gold in 3D – is Contempoh. I have already written about their amazing designs here,


Die Motte is a project created by Astrid and Anel in Barcelona. The two jewellery artists interlace two personalities and demonstrate the “Feminine” from those different sides expressing themselves via their jewellery creations.


The “Get a Bob” earrings are designed with a self-empowering vision – whether it is getting a new hairstyle or whatever that changes your image, like a new pair of earrings.  They represent being confident about yourself and taking care of your desires.


These earrings are called ”The Mirror”. They depict handcrafted faces, each slightly different with a personality. They are made in London and featured by the brand Sian Evans in a collaborative project with Carmen Borgonovo.

They take inspiration from Leonora Carringtons surrealist works and South American Mapuche jewellery. Using techniques and processes that echo modernist artists jewels.

Daily Crush on Contempoh

Yesterday I discovered a new jewellery brand from South Korea. Contempoh is an exclusive, contemporary designer adornment brand that creates intriguing pieces with an artistic touch. The label embraces modern and traditional design and tells a different story with each collection.

Contempoh explores elegant avenues of creating one-of-a-kind pieces from diverse materials and features playful and beautiful pieces. Through its creative work the brand designs with a vision of becoming a part of your precious life’s journey.


My favourite pieces from their Delicatism collection are the ones depicting faces, a symbol that seems to be very hyped at the moment.



The Half&Half collection is also super beautiful. The designs are very original despite the fact that they are made with a very classic jewellery gem – pearls.


Are you also intrigued by Contempoh’s artistic pieces you can take a closer look here.
