By the time I finished photo-shooting at Starry, I knew right away that I didn’t need to write a long attractive text for this unique handmade jewellery boutique. I decided to let the jewellery pieces sold at Starry speak for themselves as their beauty is simply beyond words to describe. When I popped into Starry by chance four days before photo-shooting, I was entirely dazzled by the display showcase filled with a lot of really stunning bits that I couldn’t take my eyes off it. Esther Li is an amazing local Chinese handmade jewellery designer for whom designing is an opportunity to satisfy her passion. She doesn’t mass produce products; each design is individually handcrafted in a very small quantity and is therefore totally unique, so in other words each piece is made a true rare masterpiece, which surely makes the wearer feel privileged. Esther aims to come up with original designs which can strike a balance between the designer’s distinctive signature style and the needs of the market, and I would say she made it.
Using the finest semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski crystals and vintage components, Esther creates a timeless collection of handcrafted jewellery and vintage inspired accessories, which features a wonderful selection of beautiful bangles, earrings, necklaces and brooches. I especially like the multicolored crystal embellished bangles with which I bling my eyes out. There is absolutely nowhere else you can get such exquisite designs, excellent craftsmanship and luxurious materials at an affordable price better than these in Starry, perhaps yes in some reputable department stores like Lane Crawford at double the price.
It was in fact very hard to pick a favorite as all the designs were so jaw-droppingly gorgeous that I couldn’t make up my mind what to purchase. What do you think?
Esther’s design style is considered to be a perfect fusion of vintage and modernity with sophisticated elegance which appeals to women of all ages who are tasteful, classy, and love wearing accessories which would accentuate the best parts of their body.
The designer searched worldwide for these Chinese wedding dragon phoenix candles for the window display. Not only are westerners obsessed with the exotic Chinese customs, so am I.
