When, in the depths of the winter of 2014, the Athropologie catalog arrived on my doorstep, I wanted to be anywhere but Maine. The colors! The textures! The vibrant life of Vietnam! I loved it all. (see their lookbook video here) What better way to put dreams into reality (and by reality, I mean, something tactile that I can create by hand) than by making a piece of jewelry with the colors I adored. I love that the Hanoi necklace not only incorporates the brights of Vietnam but also is reminiscent of the soft cornflower blue of Edinburgh’s streets and the smooth green on a vintage VW van.
