Halloween Jewels: Suicide Blonde

By Sarah Redman

With Halloween this week many people will be sorting their costumes, some will go big and spend on their outfit, others will have a go at the face paint, but some will stick to the accessories. So if you are one of those people and you like a subtle nod to the frightening tradition then you will want a cheeky little look at what we have below.

Suicide Blonde is an emerging accessories label, it came from a simple ideal; “to create a luxe but eccentric leather and jewellery brand beautifully handmade in England”. So that is exactly what they’ve done; Estelle Lordonne, the creator and founder designs, prepares and cuts all the pieces at her creative studio in London’s East End.

“A little macabre, a bit eccentric, with a certain whiff of Gothic aesthetic, slightly imbued with the spirit of grunge intertwined with clerical restraint: here comes Suicide Blonde.”

Here at The Sarah’s Style Blog we have chosen our top five pieces in their Halloween collection:

1) The Black Spider, Duo of Spiders Single Earring

This is a small spider hanging on a silver chain from a miniature spider post. This earring is oxidised 925 sterling silver and is handmade in London, retailing at £105.00

I like this quirky design piece, it can be worn anytime too and is a real statement piece – either worn on its own or with a plain stud in the other ear.

2) Skull and Cross Bones Trio of Stacking Rings

These rings are all 925 sterling silver and consist of one skull with a choice of diamond or black diamond stone eyes, one silver band and one cross bones ring, together retailing at £210.00

I am a big fan of stacking rings and these are no different, once again versatile enough to wear on a daily basis to vamp up an outfit.

This is a sterling silver skull with a choice of diamond or black diamond stone eyes, it includes a sterling silver chain and retails for £165.00

This Bracelet is lovely and delicate, with the diamond detailing yet still has a Gothic element, perfect for Halloween or if you just like a diamond studded skull on your wrist!

This is a 925 sterling silver skull with green garnet stone eyes, it also includes a sterling silver chain, both are handmade in London and together retail for £155.00

I love a good pendant and this one is no exception. The bright green garnet eyes really stand out and make this standard pendant a little bit of a quirky investment piece

This is a digitally printed leather outer case (with an oxblood nappa leather lining). It is handmade in London and retails for £245.00
Lastly this iPad case is a great nod to Halloween and just a little bit different to your average cover. I love the wood pattern and the Dracula figure just ‘vamps’ up the Halloween element.
