"From a Pebble on the Ground a Design is Born" with Femme Mecanique Designs

Monday 30 September 2013


FemmeMecanique's inspirations bores from the simplest surroundings. After finding a pebble on the ground one day she used the form, colour and significance to create wearable pieces of eco-friendly art, art that I am fortunate enough to experience myself.

Femme Mécanique four distinctive concepts of Nature, Rustic, Tribal and Urban is clearly reflected in all her designs, some with a clever concoction of tribal urbanite and naturally rustic, pushing the boundaries of creativity and imagination both within the designs and the wearer themselves.

One of my favourite pieces of her collection is the geometric armour double arrow ring in sterling silver; a truly statement-making piece yet deceivingly minimalistic and subtle in appearance, I enjoy wearing it in either direction depending on my mood. Another ring I took a particular keenness to is the rustic oval modern ring. It is ever so delicate but extremely durable, it sits so close it almost feels like wearing a second skin. I love the hammered texture to provide its gothic character. 

As I wear her designs and the concept behind it I started to look around carefully at my beautiful beachy surroundings, looking for inspirations however sparse it may be. It really depends on what you make of it. Inspiration is created and it is not forced. Let ideas into your mind and run wild with it.
