Once again it has been a while since I blogged, but Black Heart Creatives has been taking steps forward recently with some new ideas, being accepted on the Princes Trust scheme (which is very exciting!) and working on a new season collection! I want to introduce 'Palm Bling' for you today and some of the new ideas in future posts.
It appears that things I have always enjoyed ascetically like pineapples and flamingos and all things tropical have become ~on trend this season. I knew back in January the kinds of pieces I wanted to do but with so much inspiration around I feel I was able to be more innovative than the concepts in my mind. We had several names for the collection like Miami Nice, Laguna Bitch, Hex on the Beach but Palm Bling won out. I liked the almost pop art/lowbrow feel the 'Live Fast Die Yum' collection and I wanted to carry that through into Palm Bling but I also wanted to keep it simple with three main components; Flamingo, Palm Trees and Pineapples but then offer versatility in how you can wear them. For example several people commented that they loved Live Fast Die Yum but weren't that into statement necklaces, but were more into large earrings. Keeping that in mind Palm Bling has up to four different ways you can wear each piece.
tched in either matte or mirrored gold and then backed on to black, the contrast of the Pineapple necklace epitomises the glamour of the hot and tropical. We offer variants of the pineapple in drop and stud earrings and also a brooch to complete your look.
These alter a bit from the necklace, as they are not backed on to black for a contrast. They are small and understated, easy to wear every day, and probably my favourite pieces of the collection along with their flamingo counter part. As well as mirrored and matte gold the studs also come in our transparent neon colours (notoriously hard to photograph) orange and yellow.
