Wednesday Feature

"Relique - (Frenchified spelling of Relic) something that has survived the passage of time, cherished for its age or historic interest. An object kept for its association with the past; a momento."

Ok it's supposed to be Friday feature but this couldn't wait!

I am pleased to present to you the wonderful local jewellery designer of Relique Vintage Jewellery, Julia Banks.

Julia is the the arty, crafty, creator of Relique Vintage Jewellery. She gained her certificate in Visual Arts studying at Christchurch Polytechnic. Being a passionate advocate of continued learning, she thrives on developing different abilities and techniques, studying many facets of art. Working out of her villa home studio in Christchurch, New Zealand she also paints in oils/mixed media collage and draws inspiration from living in a vibrant, cultural city. The Art Deco & Art Nouveau movements are her main influences which encourage her to constantly evolve her designs.

The Designs-

Antique and vintage treasures transform into a beautiful range of vintage inspired & contemporary jewellery. Each piece is created with a passion for art and design, to re-invent & re-cycle. Handcrafted and truly unique, no two pieces are exactly the same. Stand out from the rest ~ be original and unique!

What wonderful wedding day pieces for the bride who wants to be unique and one of a kind. I know my husband would have been thrilled to wear cufflinks like these. The brooches are perfect bridesmaids gifts and the divine earrings should be a treat after all your wedding planning stress!
