This Ilk is a creation of Tamara Bavdek, industrial design graduate, who discovered a new purpose for guipure lace which she started turning into jewelry just over 3 years ago.
Her line combines the comfortable light weight and the ornamental aesthetic qualities of high quality new and vintage lace into a collection of 1960's inspired statement jewelry. From large earrings and bracelets, to necklaces and body harness pieces, lace and chain intertwine to reinvent the way jewelry can be worn.
Sourcing rare fabrics, designing, hand dyeing, stiffening and assembling are all part of the fabrication process. The collection is quite diverse allowing everyone to find a unique piece that fits their taste.
I'll take the lace and fringe necklaces please (yes, both - thank you).
