When Fashion Meets Nature

I spotted these really cool handcrafted jewelry by a Brazilian brand at FA Gallery the other day called Maria Oiticica. These accessories were made using materials from native tress and rain forests such as seeds, tree bark, Amazonian fibers, and fish skin. According to the sales lady, the designer's creations help support struggling communities with craft-making traditions. What I liked about this collection is that it's not only colorful and perfect for summer looks, but it's also quite light. So you don't feel weighed down when wearing them around. And they're not too pricey either! The necklaces shown on the photo above are priced at KD 10 only! Some earring were around KD 40. Not bad at all! I have also spotted some really nice and reasonably priced Summer shoes and a neon-colored clutch as shown in the photos below.
