Photographer: Ola Bergengren for H&M
Thanks to Fluxuries for mentioning the new jewellery collection which Solange Azagury-Partridge (whose stunning top-of-the-range jewellery I heart very much but could never afford) has done for H&M - click here for the full press release, and images.
"The collection Solange has created for H&M mixes passionate red with decadent smoky-grey metal. One theme features glittery 'discoball' party jewellery and hair accessory, while another is made of red metallic lace decorated with red 'crystals' and includes a necklace, bracelet and tiara. The third theme shows chains in elegant red or smoky grey which have been fashioned into necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets. Some of the pieces are shaped to look like little metal cages with sparkly strass stones."
The rings look gorgeous but darn it, I can't wear base metal - it's just asking for excema. At the moment I'm enjoying a particular fine breakout on my left hand - blisters, splits, craters - my thumb looks like the surface of the moon (except in pink, yellow and red). Even my usually effective Protopic ointment is not getting rid as fast as it usually does. Still, I have an excuse to get my colleagues to open jars for me.
