The next time you're hunting around for beaded fare, don't simply yank something sparkly out of the jewelry box and call it a day. Dorus Mhor by Elizabeth Bloom has completely redefined the bead, and we're loving what we see.
You're in for a surprise. Have a look.
We know what you're thinking. Hand-painted plastic? Nope. Opaque glass? Not even close. Stones? Lacquer? Fimo? No, no, no. The centerpiece of Dorus Mhor creations are beads expertly covered with cloth.
That's right. With her own special technique, Elizabeth Bloom takes beads and perfectly wraps them in vintage silks and cotton fabrics from Liberty of London. The result? A mix of textiles and metal, and jewelry that you're not going to find anywhere else. Plus, because each piece of fabric is different, no two pieces are alike; each item is one of a kind.
The brilliance here is two-fold. Not only are the beads totally unique, but the range of the styles is also completely alluring. We love the Art Deco inspired frames of the earrings and the throwback to Swinging London in several of the bright choker necklaces.
