Dubai, Wednesday 8th May 2013: When it comes to accessorising, don't you just love flaunting bright, bold colours to add major pizzazz to your attire? Jewellery opens up endless possibilities on ways to spice up your style, but the true reward is when your hunt uncovers something so unique, it becomes a treasured collectable. This is what we call fun and the art of becoming an accessorising connoisseur.
Bespoke online fashion and lifestyle website, Anjelique.me, brings to you another enthralling Turkish designer, Kathre. This eclectic brand reflects the Turkish craft of glass embossing accessories and objects, artfully blending the east with a western Mediterranean twist. Resulting in stunning superiority, these unique handmade designs lend a contemporary feel.
Still struggling to see how these masterpieces are made with glass?
Kathre's accessories are produced and designed by a very special technique called ‘flame working'. In this technique, Italian glass rods are melted in a flame at a very high temperature. This is where all the magic occurs within the kiln, making it virtually impossible for any two pieces to be alike. The most prized, one of a kind pieces are then combined with silver and gold plating.
Where can you find something so truly unique? At Anjelique, of course.
The Kathre range has the perfect summer bracelet with the ‘Cintemani' (AED 275), complete with four green and authentically decorated glass-flamed beads threaded between 925 silver and rich orange fabric. This bracelet represents the symbol of power and authority!
When you want to dress to impress, there is nothing more suggestive than an exquisite necklace. The feminine, striking and truly unique ‘Tulip Garden' (AED 695) is handmade with lilac glass beads and pink tulips, exuding traditional Turkish design. This achievement boasts a jewellery-lover's heaven with historical symbolism to boot. The Tulip Revolution Period during the Ottoman era was known to be full of pleasure, comfort and art, and this necklace oozes this ideal.
Why not bring your outfit to life with the' Guc' flaming pomegranate red Italian glass pendant (AED 335) in a 925 gold silver setting? It sits elegantly on chain of black satin ribbon, while the pomegranate theme relates to Turkish mythology in abundance and reproductivity. Perhaps the brightest sky blue you have ever seen, The ‘Rumi' pendant (AED 600) is mixed with bold yellow swirls and hangs on a 925 silver gold-plated chain. It is designed to inspire the mystical sense of turning oneself around.
Or, keep your drums beating with a tribal, earthy pallet in the ‘Sultan' pendant, (AED 385) on a brown suede chain. This was designed to inspire the Ottoman Sultans' Kaftans.
