Mirabelle – fabulous brass accessories

Mirabelle – fabulous brass accessories

Mirabelle, FashionBiteMirabelle, FashionBite 3Mirabelle, FashionBiteMirabelle, FashionBiteBrass jewellery is my new accessory obsession, and so I was thrilled to find fairtrade brand Mirabelle.

Founder Veronique Henry is the daughter of a Parisian silversmith, with a passion for South-East Asia; expressed through her collections, which feature vibrant gems and a range of regional flora and fauna worked into her designs.   

Best of all, Mirabelle jewellery is created using materials sourced from fairtrade suppliers. Pieces are made from sterling silver, (my favourite) brass, semi-precious stones, mother of pearl, wood and shell.

For me, gold jewellery is a little too stark – I prefer a toned-down shade. The muted colouring of brass jewellery gives it an antique look.

I recently bought the brass Mirabelle Seahorse Pendant, with an amethyst stone, from fashion boutique Black Truffle, which is where I first spotted the brand. However, after a birthday day out, and a few too many Vodka and Tonics, I carelessly dropped the chain down my wooden floorboards.

The next day I went onto Mirabelle’s website (www.mirabellejewellery.co.uk), on the hunt for a replacement, and quickly formed a mental wish-list featuring other items in the collection. Among my favourites, on the website, are the Turtle Pendant with Shell (£39.00), Tree of Life with Garnet necklace (£39.00), and the Bird-Charm bangle (£24.00).

Prices range from around £15 to £70, and so the brand is perfect for adding a special touch to outfit without spending a fortune.
