Walk for Prems today

We had another beautiful sunny day for Life's Little Treasures Foundation (LLTF) annual
Walk/Run For Prems in Melbourne and in other locations around Australia today. 
NeckSpice is proud to be a supporter of LLTF and their major fundraising Walk/Run. 
Some photos of our NeckSpice creations that were worn on the day
by some who were volunteers helping behind the scenes. 


If you would like to get involved with LLTF have a look at their really cool website

New Season new necklace new wardrobe

Our friend Justine has entrusted us with her lapis lazuli necklace to remodel into two necklaces for the new season.  She wore it today and it was stunning!  Here is the finished necklace.  The very clever inbuilt special NeckSpice magic design feature is that each strand can be unclipped and worn separately or that is versatile.

Yep we love this necklace so much that we took
 a trillion photos...

Besoke Design for Lapis Lazuli

We are creating a besoke piece for a client utilising her Lapis Lazuli and our resin and
blue semi precious faceted beads.  See our progress to date. 
We are aiming to have 2 strands that can be worn independently. 
There will be more pictures as we progress.  Again it has been a lot of fun,
with numerous cups of tea, laughter and conversation about beads, life
and all the other issues facing women today.

Double Strand Modern Pearls

We have been experimenting with a new design - the double strand modern pearls.  They incorporate smooth frosted glass beads, resin, silver and pearls to give an elegant and modern look.  We are testing out the design with both casual and corporate wear this month. 
 Some have a ribbon back and others have a smooth metal back.  The design has a hidden flexibility in that the necklace can be extended so that it can be worn as a long piece by attaching extra ribbon or metal.  We think our design is very groovy - we would love feedback on the design.  No two necklaces are the same as we alter the beads so each piece is individual.

Winter Inspiration

The snow is falling again in Australia and we have those beautiful colours of silver, blue, a snowy grey and an amazing kind of green.  That is our inspiration this month for the upcoming
NeckSpice collection.

Young NeckSpice Designer Branches Out

This is "work experience week" in Melbourne for lots of students.  Our young NeckSpice designer Chloe was lucky enough to secure a placement with the gorgeous Lucy Mora at Hut 13 in Richmond (at 79 Swan Street).  This is one of the funkiest stores stocking the most unusual and colourful handmade home wares, pots, jewellery, and fabulous art. 
Check it out next time you are in Richmond.
