Pirouette is the newest collection by Steinunn Vala for Hring eftir hring. It is inspired by the colourful world of circus.
“The two sides to circus fascinate me. On one hand, it is beautiful and spectacular – the strong make-up, the excited energy, the bespoke performance dresses made from the softest silk, the ballerina tutus and the flowing champagne. But then, there is a dark flipside to it all.”
The collection consists of both very simple and more elaborate, colourful pieces. The two striking necklace patterns, Ballerina and The Clown’s Collar, also serve as an add-on collar to any shirt or dress. The earrings and rings to match are simple, and work perfectly on their own as a part of a more minimalistic, effortless look, too.
"When I was growing up I had collars that where nicely handmade and where put over my dresses. The dresses got to small or worn out but the collars lasted my whole youth and are even now still in use."
All the colorful beads and pearls in the Pirouette collection are individually blended by our own recipe, handmade, burned and then compiled into rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets, all by the Hring eftir hring team at our workshop in Reykjavík. Each piece is unique and slightly different from the rest.
Wooden beads and pearls are beach wood.
