I have such a soft spot for acrylic jewellery. It reminded me of the 1960's plastic jewellery that my mum had in her collection and during my teenage new rave phase I had a pretty impressive collection, so I'm really pleased that this fun, bold jewellery trend is still going strong!
One designer that is creating and producing some awesome pieces right here in the UK is Sarah, owner and creator of Glitter Punk. She was kind enough to send me the fabulous Rocket and Stars Necklace (£18.00*) that you see above and I fell in love with it as soon as I opened the fab red box it arrived in!
I've tried shooting this a few times because I wanted to show just how glitzy and fab it is and I still don't think I'm really doing it justice - it's so so sparkly and gorgeous! The acrylic itself is nice and thick and cut perfectly with lovely smooth edges and I adore the way that the stars have been attatched with short lengths of chain that allow them to move around. The design is bold and eye catching and is such a statement piece!
Sarah says she was inspired by Button Moon and The Clangers and it reminded me of one of my favourite cartoons when I was little, Fantastic Max! That's one of the things I love about acrylic jewellery, it's just so fun and outlandish and reminds me of more innocent, fancy free times.
It's not just this gorgeous rocket that has caught mine and many other people's eye! In fact, so many people pre-ordered Sarah's latest designs that the launch date had to be put back so she could make more stock! How fab is that? It's really no surprise though when you see how cute the designs are - just check out that lil metallic seashell!
So what do you think? Are you an acrylic jewellery fan too?
