Sunken Treasure

Along with posting splendid photographs on her blog that detail her life in Antwerp, Sophie Schellekens designs jewellery under the title Sunken Treasure. For her summer collection she has shifted the focus away from her usually restrained and selective application of colour to a fantastical explosion of rainbow hues. You only need to look at the origami paper confetti employed in the styling of the product photography to feel the first flush of summer. Using a mix of metal, beading and textile elements, each necklace has its own unique look, so there are a variety of styles available to suit different tastes. Personally, I’m finding it hard to pick just one standout. This undoubtedly spells trouble for my credit card balance.

The summer collection will be available in the Sunken Treasure shop this Saturday. More images of the necklace designs can be viewed on Schellekens’ flickr.
