Of course they are a moody bunch these Pixies, but what with chaos leading to perfection and drama leading to art and all… well, they do come up with some beauts – the latest creations take inspiration from drama and Japan, opera and Spring.
“Madame Butterfly”, its name inspired by the famous Puccini opera, a heart-wrenching story of passion and shattered love. Made of hand spun carbonised bamboo fibre, it combines black and orchids, darkness and light, black glass and faceted vintage style beads, as well as soft artificial orchids. Like many Pixie designs, it’s so soft you can wear it against your skin.
‘Violetta’, the name inspired by the self sacrificing courtesan in Verdi’s “Traviata”, is another dramatic piece: handmade from handdyed and handspun art yarn using the softest fibres, ‘Violetta’ is a comfortable art fibre necklace in purple, pink and aubergine and a hint of white and silver.
The necklace is made with hand spun banana fibre, soya, seacell, flax, cotton, mulberry silk, and glitz . Violet and silver glass beads, artificial pearls, recycled sari silk ribbons, and carefully selected speckled feathers are spun into the fibre give it a final touch of luxury.
It can be worn dressed up or down, to the pub or to the opera…
