A collaboration that really struck me recently, due to its perfect pairing and execution, is the collaboration between Melbourne based jewellery designer Estelle Dévé and Australian label Arnsdorf. Estelle created quartz and amethyst rings, earrings and necklaces for Arnsdorf's SS 2010/11 Opticks collection that perfectly complemented the clean cut lines and digital crystal prints of the garments.
The raw edges and slightly rough silver combined with the natural precise growth of the quartz are a really stunning combination, producing an earthy yet elegant end product.
You can see Estelle Dévé's collections Lunar Mare and A Fall to Earth on her website, and see what she's up to over on her tumblr and blog.
These lovely jewels will be available at Adelaide's own, The New Guard as well as many other retailers.
I'll definitely be trying to get my hands on these! Or rather, trying to get these on my hands ;)
A huge thank you to Estelle for providing me with these images!
