The Scots Pine inspires I Love a Lassie’s new Bark collection coming soon to IJL
I Love a Lassie is launching its new Bark collection at International Jewellery London (IJL) this September, the Scottish silver jewellery designers said.
This latest collection of pendants, earrings, rings and cuffs captures the extraordinary sheen and texture of the bark found on a Scots Pine tree.
The Bark collection features large, dramatic pieces like the Bark ring and Bark cuff and provides the perfect complement to the more delicate pieces of the brand’s best-selling Birds’ Nest collection. Both collections will be on display at IJL, stand no: P47.
“There is a roughness as well as an almost luminous sheen to Scots Pine bark that really appealed to me,” said I Love a Lassie’s jewellery designer and co-founder, Arlene Katorza. “This conflict of textures creates a natural drama I wanted to capture in this new collection.”
As with all jewellery from I Love a Lassie, each piece is made in solid sterling silver and offered in additional finishes of 18ct yellow gold vermeil, 18ct rose-gold vermeil and black rhodium.
The jewellery is finished by hand in I Love a Lassie’s Edinburgh workshop and carries the traditional Edinburgh Castle hallmark.
