New Zealand-based jewelry designers Meadowlark have earned a cult following for their dark, edgy designs, and their latest collection, The Love Cats, follows suit, recalling imagery from a triptych of mystical elements.
From their website's description of the collection:
"Drawing inspiration from immediate surrounds, Meadowlark have elevated everyday elements from their home. Three diverse motifs dovetail beautifully into this range, evolving an ongoing love for symbols of power and mystery. The Peony, A celebration of Spring, prosperity and peace. Crossed nails, a symbol of binding and making, jewellery made of nails was historically worn as pagan protection against mischievous magic, to ward off sickness and draw luck to the wearer. Completing the triptych, the Cat story is the boldest of the three. This stoic and silent guardian of the home also represents transformation, opportunity and freedom."
Being a notorious lover of cat feetsies, I'm besotted by the entire line, especially the paw stud earrings, and the chunky cat paw cocktail ring, featuring a delicate set of kitty claws clutching at a pyramid shaped rose quartz.
