New Designs growing in the quiet of January

Helena Perez Lafaurie’s new work

January is a quiet time for
goldsmiths.  The Christmas rush is over
and Valentine’s Day seems a long way off. 
But don’t let our quietness fool you. 
Like so many things in winter we are working quietly away in the dark
and cold ready to spring forth with new growth.
One such goldsmith is Helena Pérez
Lafaurie. She has spent January working on new pieces for her eponymous
jewellery line. Like many of us Helena can’t keep her mind off of the warmth
and sun of Spring and this can be seen in her new work called, of course,
“Spring.”

“Spring” bracelet in silver and Agatha, length 7
inches, price $165

“Spring” necklace in silver and Agatha, length 33
inches, price $220

 The line was inspired by the agate
stones seen in both the necklace and bracelet, “The agate looks like blossoms
to me, I miss the spring so much, the flowers, the sun…,”she trails off, misty
eyed.  Between you and me, I think the
line is inspired by her soon-to-be-born first grandson!
 
Helena’s second set of new pieces is
called “Charms.” As all of us at Jewel Envy can testify, Helena LOVES little
things that shine and make noises.

Necklace in silver, length 33 inches,
price $166
Bracelet in silver, length 7 inches,
price $105
When Helena is in the studio, her ever-present
stacked silver bracelets are in constant movement and making sound much like
this new necklace and bracelet will when worn—they are sure to attract the
attention of the new grandson!
