We loved this original editorial shoot showcasing a fascinating jewellery line along with vintage dresses and organic beauty. Mieke, creator of Flux & Stone Jewellery, designed this shoot with vintage wedding gowns and clean makeup which lends to the feel of natural beauty.
So what makes this artists’ work so fascinating? Mieke explains, “I like to call some of my work ‘bridal science’! I take lace from a wedding gown and, by using a process called electroforming, encase it in copper. It can be described as growing copper around an object using positive and negative charges.” The end result is beautifully original.
Mieke finds herself particularly inspired by the West Coast and Vancouver Island and describes her work as infusing love into each piece. “”I like to remind women of their wild nature and natural beauty. Wedding jewellery doesn’t always have to be blingy…it can be earthy and original.”
So, as a bride, think about more unusual jewellery for your wedding day. The current bridal style of boho chic suits custom pieces and they make wonderful gifts for your wedding party. Walk on the wild side for your wedding jewellery and stand out from the crowd
