Island Style: Anitanja Jewelry Collection Launch

By Glasgow Skinner/ My Life On And Off The Guest List @guestlistblog
Have you ever been introduced to something that truly speaks to you? Something that can remind you of your favorite place, thing or person. That is what we felt when we attended a preview event for jewelry designer, Anitanja Lawaetz's US collection launch. The Anitanja Jewelry Collection was inspired by the gorgeous island of St. Lucia, a place we hold very near and dear to our hearts. Her jewelry line features six collections, inspired by various aspects of St. Lucia, from the iconic Pitons, to the cocoa pods. Get ready to fall in love with the Seed Collection, Sea Fan Collection, Piton Collection, Medallion Collection (available in gold and silver), Drift Cone Collection, and Cocoa Collection.

Want to learn more about each collection, and the inspiration behind it? Keep reading on to find out more information below and see our interview with Anitanja Lawaetz:
Seed Collection - inspired by the wild seeds Anitanja discovered walking her family's estate in St. Lucia, these pieces feature tiny, textured, "wild seeds" strung together with brass to create elegant necklaces and bracelets.
Sea Fan Collection - Anitanja perfectly captures the beauty and delicate, openwork design look of sea fan corals found in the Caribbean Sea. The filigree-esque texture is highlighted in gold, black and silver tones with CZ accents, white, or white pearls. Ee are particularly in love with this collection's CZ Cuff Bracelet and the Gemstone Collar Necklace.
Piton Collection - capturing the iconic "twin" Pitons, St. Lucia's volcanic peaks and the most recognizable landmark on the island, this collection celebrates the Pitons with its pyramid-shaped stones, a symbol that is also featured on St. Lucia's flag. Onyx and green malachite give pieces in this collection the design element to capture the majesty and beauty of these iconic peaks. We love how the Piton Mountain 2-Stone Malachite Ring captures the lush green color and size difference.
Medallion Collection - also inspired by Sea Fan Coral but with more geometric details and a structured design, pieces from the Medallion collection boasts a more versatile appearance that keeps your look contemporary while still remaining quite polished. This collection is available in both silver and gold and is more high-end, so therefore is at a higher price point. Our favorite piece is the stunning statement Bibb Necklace.
Drift Cone Collection - just as rocks gets their smooth texture in the rivers, drift wood gets distinctive shapes and textures from the waves of the sea. Drift cones are ample on the shores of St. Lucia and this collection captures the characteristics of an these unidentified seed cones. Black cultured freshwater pearls and ridged texture and groove patterns add luxury and edginess to these pieces. We love the 2-Tone Gemstone Cuff Bracelet, the Bronze Bangle Bracelet, and the 2-Tone Gemstone Drop Earrings.
Cocoa Collection - no we're not talking chocolate diamonds; this collection celebrates both aspects of the cacao pod, the whole pod itself and the floral-esque shape that is seen when the pod is cut vertically.....these segmented pieces are the cross-sections. One look at the stunning Cocoa Pod Gemstone Drop Earrings or Gemstone Drop 8" Bracelet and you'll be in love.
