Welcome to another instalment of 'Behind The Design'! In this series, I give you a peek behind the scenes into my design diary and showing you where the designs started!
Recap: Earring Sets Collection
The earring sets collection came from an idea I had when curating my own ear stack. Piercings have always been a huge part of S-kin's identity, and for me it was always a pride and joy to be able to show others my curated ear. Our collection of piercings and earrings got so large that, for someone to style their own ear from scratch, it was such an overwhelming task!
Then came the earring sets capsule we released in December 2022, which was so well received by our customers! I felt it was a solution to the problem of not knowing how to style your ear and set out to design pieces that are part of curated sets to make it easy to style any ear stack.
Yoru Blue Crystal Earrings Set
The name 'Yoru' is Japanese for 'night', and this set is dear to my heart as I originally came up with the concept on the plane trip to Japan early this year. I love the beautiful blue hues that are incorporated with harmonious combinations of gemstones shapes and sizes. The result is an incredibly unique set of earrings that is suitable for anyone looking for a unique take on subtle glam.
Gatsby Champagne Crystal Earrings Set
The name says it all - this set was inspired by the ever so dazzling 1920's and my all time favourite book, The Great Gatsby. I definitely channelled my inner Daisy on this one and chose to use baguette stones as the main element with champagne gemstones to create a unique accent colour. The best combination for an every day luxury set.
Darlene Pearl Earrings Set
Pearls have always been a big part of S-kin, from our coveted Fleur and La Femme collections to our well loved Handmade Pearls collection. I wanted to incorporate pearls in a way that was not only reflective of S-kin's vintage-inspired roots, but also dainty and elevated for those who don't want the 'grandma clutching my pearls' type of look. With climber shapes, dainty round pearls, sparkly crystal accents, I hope I nailed the above brief!
Josephine Hoop Earrings Set
Last but not least - Josephine was inspired by our dangly earring loving customers! I wanted an option for those who have multiple lobes (like myself) to style their many lobes with an easy one and done option. My favourite way to style lobes is huggie hoops, so Josephine was born! Incorporating different gemstone shapes and two types of hoops finishing, Josephine is perfect for lobe-loving ear stackers.
