My fascination with distinct and elegant shapes that can be worn shows no sign of stopping, which is why I was thrilled when Sophie Mckay reached out about her gorgeous line Bar Jewellery. Immediately I was taken with the pared down combination of delicate twists and weighty, geometric designs. Collection 1 perfectly balances soft curves and angular lines to become a powerhouse of refined statement pieces.
The name Bar comes from the idea of being stripped back to basics, akin to the minimal and unapologetic bar form that metal takes before being made into jewellery.
The first collection by Bar Jewellery is an eclectic mix of abstract, sculptural pieces and redesigned classics, heavily inspired by the sculpture of mid century modernist masters such as Constantin Brancusi and Jean Arp. –Bar Jewellery
Sophie began creating pieces in her home with the goal of inspiring positivity and responsibility, encouraging others to see beyond current trends. Bar is handmade and sustainably sourced, cast, and finished in the London, and will soon expand to include vintage pieces to further encourage others to make conscious purchases.
My hope for the accessories I choose is that in their form they possess a quiet sort of appeal, one that inspires confidence and excitement each time they are worn. I love the idea of turning a basic form into something unique, something that stays with you year after year. Bar Jewellery and its architectural and sculptural details–at once both modern and timeless–are perfect for wearing with simplicity and ease. To me, these are the hallmarks of a beautiful, thoughtful piece.
