stannard-inc: handmade jewellery & urban fashion accessories
Known for original handmade jewellery that provokes spontaneous conversation amongst strangers, stannard-inc is a Sydney-based indie fashion label producing men's and women's accessories that meld classic jewellery design with cutting-edge street style.
The woman behind the label, Claire Suzy Stannard, was a child of the 70’s and experienced a bohemian, free-wheelin’, artistic upbringing. The art of the time was bold, geometric, trippy and fun.
The fashion was luxe, flowing and theatrical. Women on the big screen were sexy and empowered. Fast forward a few years, add a degree in jewellery and object design and you have the distillation of these influences into a truly authentic, unique accessories label.
Each piece is conceived and handmade in the Sydney studio. As is often the way with creatively driven people, the range is constantly morphing and evolving - either limited editions or one-offs....not the stamp em’ out mass production that you see in the malls.
Featuring bronze castings (done the old-school way), copper, brass, feathers and leather (supplied by a quality Australian tannery), each piece personifies handmade quality from concept to production.
Playful, imaginative, authentic.
