Family Jewels
Last week I was alerted to the beautiful works of Barbara Rabito, a jewellery designer, who makes spectacular use of bits and pieces from all over the place. Barbara can customise neckpieces for brides, and will also work with family heirloom pieces to create something truly personal for your special occasion. Most recently Barbara created a standout necklace for a client using odd bits of pearl jewellery the client had from her grandmother. What an amazing idea! Her neckpieces are assemblages of vintage, antique and found pieces sourced from all over the world, with particular use of Art Noveau and Art Deco items. The new collection is inspired by her travels in the wonderful Argentina. To find out more about her pieces or to get something special made for your big day visit
