Wearable Art: From St Xavier

Known as the “City of Art”, Paris is home to an abundance of creative masterpieces- the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre… Yet at Paris Fashion Week it was all about wearable art and Givenchy used the face (!) as a blank canvas! Yep that’s right each model paraded the runway with their face dripping with jewels. As striking as this look may be, it doesn’t scream practicality and may be a little tricky to pull off on date night!

Well fear not, Paris is not the only hub of beautiful works of art. Born and raised in Sydney, fashion forward jewellery label From St Xavier is the epitome of stunning design. The latest collection of treasure to arrive at WSd proves that art is indeed wearable.

Lovingly handmade, each From St Xavier piece differs slightly in appearance, meaning every item is bespoke. The From St Xavier ethos explains the thinking behind the unique nature of each piece…

‘In many ancient cultures some believed that wearing jewellery that combines three metals with a natural stone brings about spiritual harmony. FSX entwines this belief with key fashion trends offering our customers truly amazing one of a kind pieces’.

At WSd HQ, we’re like children in a sweet shop, mesmerized by the delectable stones in each piece.

So, what can you find in store?

While stacking bracelets makes an eclectic statement, a cuff is all about strong simplicity. Embracing the wrist like armour, the beautiful TARA cuff (£47) makes a striking statement, with contrasting bold earthy toned stones against silver metal. A must-have piece.

From St Xavier draws on the classic combination of turquoise and silver to create stunning statement rings. Wear one to highlight the distinctive stone, or a few to create a sea of beautiful blue hues and bring the ocean to your fingertips.

The KIMBRA (£65) metal clutch will simultaneously make you feel like a warrior and go weak at the knees every time you gaze adoringly at its ornate beauty. This little wonder will toughen up your winter wool and take you from day to night with its removable chain strap.

That’s not all. The collection is true accessory heaven- you’ll find beautiful earrings that will set your outfit alight and a collar necklace that will instantly upgrade a simple tee. Any piece from the St Xavier range will make a unique gift for Christmas and bring pure joy to the fortunate recipient!

Oh and there’s no need to go to Paris or Sydney to treat someone (or yourself of course) to a bespoke piece of jewellery. What Sarah did HQ is located in lovely Hitchin and we can also post items right to your very doorstep! Check out the ‘Contact’ tab for Paypal details.
