EABurns Ethical Accessories

These wonderful triangle necklaces are the creation of hot new designer EABurns, beautifully handcrafted pendants that dangle from gold/silver-plated chunky chains around the necks of the ethically-aware and fashion-concious. The coloured panels are made from responsibally-sourced saddlery leather and fitted together with piercings. The materials are both practical, in that they are durable; and original – they would add an individual edge to any outfit. Even the smaller range, measuring 3.5×2.5cm, would draw a lot of attention and sex up a simple ensemble. But it’s the larger variety, 7x5cm, that we really want to get my hands on – in every colour. Check out the rest of new London designer and stylist’s range from her SS11 collection – the adorned collers on the gorgeous printed and plain coloured shirts are really inventive and unique and a personal fave of the EB Team!

Slide this on to your wrist, and suddenly it’s like the rest of the world becomes more vibrant, more…I hesitate to say arousing, but yes, it really is that life-enhancing. Simple, elegant high-fashion punk, rendered with exquisite care. Naturally such a thing comes at a high price (a bank-account murdering $2,825) but it’s not like you needed to eat this month anyway.
