I’m breaking away from my recent obsession with talent from B.C. and moving onto Edmonton, Alberta where a young designer, Amor Carandang of AMOR JEWELRY, has achieved quite a following.
AMOR JEWELRY designs fashion accessories for women and men including necklaces, earrings, and bangles. The Summer 2012 collection is perfect for a big-city dweller with refined taste but who prefers understated attention. The pieces are made of brass, copper and leather, bound together on long chains with geometric, very clean and eye-catching designs. My personal favourites are the BRASS CUFFS & RINGS that seem delicate and tasteful yet the design, which reminds me of a hex cap bolt, brings just enough of masculinity and strength.
I’m looking forward for the new collection and hope it’ll also be strong, edgy and clean. To contact AMOR for a custom design or to purchase one of her piece, visit amorjewelry.com. Unfortunately, I didn’t find a list of stores that carry the line.
