Kimberly Ann Marie: jewellery with a coastal twist
For those who have bought and read all seven novels, watched all eight films, have posters of the famous trio and own a wand or invisibility cloak, jeweller Kimberly Ann Marie is your accessory goddess. By designing the quirky ‘Harry Potter’ ring, she has successfully managed to merge geek with chic – a trend made famous by adolescents that now seems (fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your stance and toleration of non-prescription glasses) to be vanishing, one suspender at a time.
A self-proclaimed ‘world-traveller-wannabe’, who may want to visit fictional Hogwarts, Ann Marie grew up in a small coastal town, “walking the beaches and admiring [her] finds”. Inspired by this and nature, her designs are minimal yet vibrant, focusing on silver wire designs that feature aquas, greens and off-whites. Offering a selection of unusual knuckle rings alongside the ‘Harry Potter,’ the ‘Chevron’ knuckle ring is simply stunning, faintly resembling the Aquarius zodiac sign. However, for something more complex, the pearl and clear cluster cocktail ring is beautiful.
To adorn the wrist, the green and blue wire bangle will suit your daytime summer needs, whilst the plum or light pink bracelet is ideal to complete an elegant midsummer night’s outfit.
For those who wish to retain their holiday memories or just desire a beach accessory, The Upcoming recommend the mocha, caramel and ivory coloured sea shell bangle.
Also designing earrings and pendants, Ann Marie’s frosted purple hoop earrings will remind you of darkened cherries, promising sophistication in contrast to the equally lovely, yet playful, hot-pink swirl earrings.
A useful note: all of Ann Marie’s earrings would look great with a messy chignon. However, for the neck, the sea green pendant will brighten the drabbest outfit, whilst the wire wrapped seashell pendant is refreshingly uncomplicated.
Using some gems hand-picked on the shores of New England, this organic jeweller makes all of her own products, allowing each piece to be unique and special. However, with even more on offer (such as home décor items and key chains) Kimberly Ann Marie’s website is worth a good look.
