SERRETTA MORRIS | SERRETTA HANDMADE JEWELLERY

Graduated Lapis Necklace
A one-time “sleepy fishing village,” Brighton, England stirs with visitors who seek out the pebble beach, music bars, and the assortment of “unique products” at North Laine

England is also home to featured jewelry designer Serretta Morris.

Style maven Coco Chanel sums up Morris’ classic aesthetic perfectly: Simplicity is the key note of all true elegance.  

The great thing about classic jewelry style is its versatility.  

Morris’ collections of dainty gemstone necklaces, beaded bracelets and drop earrings provide the kind of wonderful understatement that someone who doesn’t like fussing over their jewelry can appreciate. 

Designs aren’t too blingy or too glossy.  They aren’t distracting or detracting.  They are the perfect accent.  In most cases the color palette for semi-precious gemstones is muted: soft pink coral, white pearls, and pale blue amazonite.  In other instances gemstone colors are deep like lapis lazuli or red coral yet Morris never strays far from clean silhouettes. 

Accents of gold vermeil beads step up the flair as do flirty, tiny gold chains.  The pared down pearl jewelry from her children’s line, Luluju, lends itself perfectly to starting off a young girl to wear jewelry.  Her delicate and feminine bridal jewelry collection, which includes headbands, consists mainly of white freshwater pearls.  The perfect look for that special day.

Blue Chalcedony Drop Earrings
“All of my jewelry is handmade in my studio.  I love gemstones.  I never use plastic or imitation stones.  I think gemstones are most beautiful in their natural state.  So I embrace organic imperfections,” she says.  

“Rough finishes and fascinating color variations add to their beauty.  My bridal designs are inspired by the costumes of ancient Greek and Roman goddesses. 

I create jewelry for women who appreciate quality and style whether that look is a vintage, classic, or contemporary look.”
