Our Soko jewellery collection has been a huge hit! So let’s explore the range, find out how it’s made and how to style.
This brass jewellery collection is sculptural, linear and contemporary. The smooth feel of the pieces mirrors their gentle, fluid lines. Capped details in cream and black complete quill motif earrings, and the layered strand cuff is dainty but with maximum impact.
Who made this jewellery, you ask? Well, it is crafted by African artisans and independent makers. It’s evident from the pieces that the makers are highly skilled, meaning they can deliver a product to this standard and beauty. Ultimately, jewellery is a section of your wardrobe where you can’t afford to scrimp. There’s a huge difference between jewellery items which are mass-produced from cheap materials and jewellery that is handmade with love and in high quality materials which don’t tarnish and wear over time.
In addition, since jewellery comes into contact directly with the skin it’s important to wear jewellery which is soft and well-made and that you also know was made supporting artisans and independent makers in a developing country. Making these pieces not only provides these workers with an income but by making a gorgeous product they feel a sense of achievement and pride in themselves which they may not have otherwise experienced.
1. Cuffs and bangles add a sense of edge to a feminine LBD and allow you to embrace your inner rock chick! Try it with our Jaime Dress in bodycon fit.
2. Highlight these statement earrings by wearing a strapless or off-the-shoulder top and a high pony tail or bun.
3. Smaller stud earrings enhance a stripe top or graphic tee for a little extra pizzazz! Our latest drops of our AW17 collection include stripes in black and navy colour ways or opt for one of our cute Cat tees (just been restocked due to popular demand).
4. Sabi Studs, with their sculptural nature, look fab paired with abstract linear prints for example our Elle Dress and Devin Wide Leg Trouser.
