Two Australian hearts merge for an exclusive collaboration. Designer Sharona Harris of F+H Jewellery enlisted model favourite Bambi Northwood-Blyth for a collection of subtle statement jewellery pieces with a ‘rock and roll edge’ to wear on repeat. Here, F+J Jewellery shares with us exclusive imagery and intimate BTS polaroids from the campaign shoot. We also chat with Bambi on the design process, her hero pieces and why a cold ocean swim everyday is a must.
How did the collaboration between you and F+H Jewellery come about?
I have worn and known of the brand for a long time, and being based in NY, I was super excited to collaborate and get creative with an Australian brand, especially getting to work and learn from the owner Sharona.
Talk us through the collection, what was the inspiration?
The inspiration was a mix of crazy beautiful places and things - mixed into a collection that could be worn everyday - with a rock and roll edge.
What are some of your hero pieces and why?
I love the bold Beautiful Girl Pearl and Opal Earrings, as well as the Party Necklaces and Anklet. I also am such an earring person, the Afterglow Pearl Earrings or New Sensation Pearl Necklace is my go to!
How much involvement did you have during the design process?
We really worked closely together on this, we met face to face initially to work out the key themes we wanted to work with - then it was a lot of emails, phone calls and FaceTime’s back and forward as elements were changed, and brought together. We then had a shoot day in Byron Bay earlier this year, which was so lovely to see it become a tangible collection!
How do you stay creative during this time of global unrest?
Stick to a routine as much as possible - wake up early, make my bed, get fresh air, stay in contact with friends and family, and read!
What are some of your daily rituals?
Cold ocean swim. Everyday.
What are you ready / watching / listening to?
How do you stay healthy (mentally and / or physically)?
Find humour in the hard times, keep myself accountable and move my body.
What do you appreciate the most right now?
Family and friends.
What do you miss the most?
Family and friends.
What is your current state of mind?
I guess I am realigning my values in this time of uncertainty.
