Eliane in British Vogue

… to Eliane Fattal for showing us how to repurpose our grandmother’s jewelry in a fun and fashionable way.  This “tumble-haired London visionary” has the knack of turning 19th century brooches and tiaras into rings, earring and hair clips and now her “Metamorphosis” collection is available at the venerable S.J. Phillips in London.  While we wouldn’t say no to this beautiful butterfly, we’re holding out for the ruby and diamond bee we saw in Vogue!

    Love how grandmother’s jewels can look “new” again! A friend is going to take a estate valuation class at NYU this month. I think she’s heading down the path of repurposing vintage pieces!

    Love the brooch in the hair!!

    So pretty and what a great way to get those jewels out of their old storage spots. Think you need that ruby/diamond bee!

    These are so innovative and stylish! What a great idea, and it’s making me look at some inherited pieces in a whole new, refreshing way!

    Love this idea. Thinking out of the box always allows for wonderful results, these included! Thanks for the inspiration.

    I have boxes of this kind of jewellery my grandmother left me, and have never known what to do with it. This is lovely inspiration.

    How absolutely enchantingly lovely! And to repurpose something so that they will be loved and worn again makes them even more charming.
