Rocking the fashion and style world of late, are stone and rock inspired objects. From the Hussein Chalayan stone age inspired collection to the Pebble MP3 player from Samsung, designers seem to be heavily intrigued by rocks.
The undulating form found in Conran’s Equilibrium Scales and pebble weight set is a beautiful interpretation of the trend. The Ryoko perfume from Kenzo borrows from the shape of stones, while the Radio with rocks by Yanko is literally just that. The Livingstones cushions of Stephanie Marin look like great fun.
Using stones in jewelry is nothing new, but the new and interesting ways of incorporating the natural beauty of rocks with a minimum of embellishment takes the design to an intrinsic base or earth, level. Featured, thanks to Trend de la Creme, is the Pebble Ring by Catherine Chandler, Double Vertical Rock Pendant by Mirand Britton, Bradley’s Experiment 1 Pendant and Baby Shield Earrings by Experimetal, with a fitting tribute to troubled times expressed in their ‘A Peace of Earth’ Stone Pendant. Ruby Beach Stone Ring and ‘The Eye’ Sea Glass Stone Pendant by Stepping Stones, keep it very basic. Another Experimental piece is the Crisscross Beach Stone Pendant. particularly striking combination is the Double pebble ring Djurdjica Kesic. Last, but not least, is the Paperclip stone available at conoeonline.net.
