I have been following the style blog Sea of Ghosts for well over a year now. Alicia, a Melbourne-based jewelry designer chronicles an edgy yet accessible aesthetic in personal style that I can easily relate to. When she recently offered to send me a piece from her otherworldly debut jewelry collection, Drown, I was beyond excited. The pieces have a mysterious, intensely futuristic quality which comes across in the lookbook.
I love this statement from Drown: “Drown’s highly conceptual collections are more than mere adornments, designed to elicit a dialogue between the wearer and the viewer. Channeling inspirations as distant as the cosmos or as close as the road beneath our feet, Drown jewellery encourages individual interpretations by inspiring the question rather than representing the answer.”
Though ‘highly conceptual,’ I felt like the piece was still very wearable. While something may look cool in the box, I wanted to share how I worked the Landslide necklace into an every day outfit. It’s nice to have a change from my typical black acrylic typography necklaces! This is how I wore the necklace yesterday:
Along with the Landslide necklace, I wore:
Cropped sweater, knit dress and tights, H&M
Studded headband, Forever 21
Heels, Diana Broussard
Simple yet edgy. Unique yet accessible. The craftsmanship and razor-sharp cuts had me enamored upon first glance and I am so excited to have a piece from Drown’s debut collection.
