When Nicole first saw these onyx carvings she was immediately drawn to the mysterious dark gem with an edge of gentle sparkle. As she tried to describe the gems, her memories of her winters in Michigan came back one layer at a time: the blackness of the matte onyx and the way it seems to absorb all light evokes memories of the velvety dark of the clear winters’ nights, even under the brightest of moons; the sparkle of the druze and the soft curves of the carvings remind her of the gentle Michigan landscape under a blanket of fresh snow.
It is the juxtaposition of extreme dark with ethereal light that formed the basis of the Midnight Snow series. Nicole marries these elements into pendants with impact and elegance, using traditional goldsmithing techniques to create unusual settings. The designs impart an air of timelessness and sophistication.
Midnight Snow’s versatile neckpieces effortlessly bring you from day to evening. They put the finishing touch on this years’ colour blocking trends, and equally elevate your favourite little black dress.
Initially struck by the gentle colours and unusual shapes, Nicole continues to admire the gems’ intriguing patterns and unique play of light. They evoke joyful memories of sunny days at the beach, soft tall grass mixed with wild flowers, and long evenings with romantic sunsets.
The Summer Strand series is based on the ever-changing light and soft colours of Northern European skies. The one-off designs play with the light of the fancy cut gems to create powerful pendants with spectacular effects. The delicate 18 karat multi-strand necklaces beautifully carry the handcrafted pendants.
Summer Strands’ graceful neckpieces and their soft colours elevate your favourite summer dress and create a stir around your evening attire.
