Many of our designs happen organically from our base materials. Start with a stunning centerpiece and build around it, add on, refine, tweak and we are left with something entirely new and different. For our line of key necklaces we started with our muse and our materials, added, subtracted, redesigned and perfected. Key necklaces and the materials that make them | L'avenirA staple in our collection and lovable wardrobe addition, these pieces are making the rounds. We recently came across an impressive collection of antique skeleton keys that are just begging to be redesigned.Skeleton Key Collection | L'avenirStay tuned as these pretties transform themselves {#anatomyofaskeletonkey} into a new batch of one kind necklaces and hit the online shop.

Favorite things // Berg√©re

Bergére Necklace, from our latest collection of one of a kind pieces, truly stands out as one of our favorite pieces. Outstanding layers of decadence come together in a veritable celebration of lavish style. Sleek silver chain, dazzling rhinestone marquis, and tassels play effortlessly off each other, draping the décolleté in glamour.l'avenir_holiday-46#1337_2Photos | Garrett Born // H&MU | Jen Des Lauriers // Styling | Joan Born // Model | Lydia Mae 

Style // Casually Cozy

The greatest part of this season is the effortlessness of casual layering, the ability to toss on a cozy sweater and some boots and be ready for the day. ¬†It’s like a stepping stone into the truly cold winter months, stretching out some of our warm weather standby’s by stacking it with anything fuzzy-ish.¬†*Layering pro tip for the day: I tend to stick to neutrals when buying sweaters and undershirts, utilizing scarves to add a bit of color to a look gets me more milage out of my wardrobe staples.¬†Casually Cozy // L'avenir Casually Cozy // L'avenir Casually Cozy // L'avenir Casually Cozy // L'avenir _MG_3053-272Casually Cozy // L'avenir

Before and After // Vendome Necklace

While maintaing a one of a kind ideal is our priority, we are attempting to create a limited quantity of some of our items for our up and coming online shop.  This has changed the way we shop, deconstruct and design entirely.  We are now focused on looking for pieces that can be spread out through several replications of a design.  With this in mind, we are hunting for items that have a multitude of components that are the same, crystal necklaces are a literal jackpot for us giving us the most versatility.  When we came across this Vendome necklace at an antique shop in Hastings we saw so many possibilities.

Vendome Crystal NecklaceAs a part of our newest collection, see what became of this fabulous vintage piece:
