Jewel Personality

by cecylia on October 29, 2012

It’s not every day I don a crocheted ensemble, a seashell necklace that is weighty as it’s beautiful, and prance around the beach like a love-struck mermaid’s first time on land. But that’s the effect Salita Matthews‘ vibrant leather and sea-creature “Time Stands Still” necklace has on one. You can’t blame me for being hopelessly captivated by its composition, colour and character. Plus it even cajoled me into chanting ‘She sells seashells by the seashore.‘ I know. Hopeless.

不是每天我会穿一身钩边的衣服,戴一根又重又美的贝壳项链,在海边像被爱迷住的美人鱼第一次在岸上跳来跳去。但这就是Salita Matthews五彩宾纷的贝壳和皮项链的魅力。项链的名字是“时间静止”。你不能怪我那么绝望地被它迷上:它有个姓的结构,色彩和品质。更巧,它让我不停得吟咏英文韵文“她在海边卖贝壳”。。。的确。 着迷。

Although your mind is now probably filled with exotic holiday scenes, why leave a crocheted ensemble sea-bound only? Wear it to lunch, dinner, or even to buy seafood, just add a little slip underneath for legal protection. I’d wear this to the library, to borrow a book on how to crochet. Think of all the endless possibilities: crochet dresses, scarves, bags, bikinis… they may even win a glance from Margherita Missoni.

可能你的脑海里现在出现的画面是海边的度假场景,但若只将这套钩边衣裙带去游海不会太可惜吗?不如穿它去中餐,晚餐,或去买海鲜,但为了斯文,别忘记底下穿上一件衬裙。我会穿这套衣服去图书馆,去借关于钩边的书,学习怎样钩边。创作的可能性太多了:钩边裙,钩边围巾,钩边包,钩边比基尼,可能 Margherita Missoni都会找上门来。。。

thank you Mica- it’s quite bright isn’t it? I tried to tone it down with the grey ensemble…

It’s bright in the best way – bursts of colour against the grey :) It looks really fun and interesting, definitely not too bright! :)
