Aurum by Guðbjörg IÐUNN Collection
Goldsmith and designer Guðbjörg once again turns to Iceland’s myths and legends as well as the country’s flora and fauna for the inspiration which shapes her unique designs. At this enchanting time of year in Iceland, the flowers are ready to blossom to show their inner beauty and the daylight grows longer after the dark winter. The designs capture perfectly the sense of both the strength and fragility of these new blooms, thanks to Aurum’s expert craftsmen who transform recycled 925 sterling silver and recycled gold into precious pieces.
The collection is named Iðunn, who In Norse mythology was the goddess of spring, youth, and rejuvenation. She is the keeper of magical apples of immortality. The apples grant all the gods eternal youth and are Iðunn’s greatest symbol. The new IÐUNN collection represents both the goddess and spring. The warm wind in fields where white cotton grasses grow.
This stunning bracelet is one of our absolute favourites for summer wear. The jewellery has been worn by leading names from music and film worlds including Bjork, and British actresses Gemma Whelan and Jodie Whittaker. Discover the new collection online at www.aurumiceland.com
When algae blooms grow in excess, they can be harmful to ecosystems by releasing toxins, consuming oxygen and blocking sunlight from underwater plants. The algae in the material used to create the Bloom Foam Slide and Bloom Foam Sandal was sourced using a process that cleans up natural waterways whilst saving water and reducing CO2 emissions – in partnership with Bloom Materials. These sandals are fun, bold and stylish, making them one of our top summer footwear picks. Women’s Algae Bloom Marble Sandal – £55. Unisex Bloom Algae Foam Marble Slide – £40. hunterboots.com
