You will most likely know the incredibly talented Amy Lawrence
from her innovative collection of geometric and tribal inspired knitted jewellery. But in recent months when her hands haven't been kept busy by her beloved Italian knitting machine she has been tinkering with other ideas that have developed into her new side project - BITZA
. A collection of necklaces meticulously pieced together from up-cycled crochet lace, leather, interesting yarns and embellishments found at antique markets, charity shops or passed on from friends and family.
Aren't these gorgeous!? I was lucky enough to snap up one of Amy's prototypes a few months ago and it has since become one of my favourite necklaces to wear, so light and comfortable and totally unique too. Every necklace in the BITZA
line is a one-of-a-kind and today I'm feeling so greedy for all of them! I love the colours in this wee collection especially - the natural vintage tones of the lace with natural leather, blush pink and cool grey with tiny pops of aqua and yellow. So pretty! When I'm not wearing mine I like to hang it across a mirror in my studio so I can admire it. The mark of a great piece of jewellery indeed, when you can't bear to lock it away in a box and have to put it on display so you can see it everyday!
