You can wear one or two, or wear different sizes in each ear or different sizes in the same ear. The possibilities are endless but the result is understated and effortless. Each piece is handcrafted in Germany with 2% of proceeds going to Earthbeat Foundation to help counter the longterm damage of goldmining.
At the other end of the spectrum are Catch Rhys‘ new everyday stacking rings (below), earrings and pendant necklaces, handmade in England from recycled 9ct gold and sterling silver.
Catherine Rhys Jones’ pieces are sold directly to the customer to avoid retail markups, with prices from £25 for solid sterling silver hoop earrings that won’t turn your skin green…

It’s a kind of ‘if you know, you know’ thing; it’s been around forever but was never treated as a ‘brand’, rather a word of mouth hangout that does very good hair. (Side note: they came out with the phrase ‘You Look Good’ long before anyone else.)
CUTS started in Kensington Market during the post-punk years, then progressed to Kensington Church Street (I would pass it on the way to school) and ended up in Soho where it’s been for a couple of decades. It’s where I went when I decided to go short in the early 90s. (more…)
