say hello to my little friends.
correy & lyon – a beautiful new perth jewellery label. the kind of pieces that scream cool in a polite and understated kind of way. maddy and i were very excited to receive our correy & lyon mail the other day, and we just had to know a little more. so, with out further ado, let us introduce you to the brains (and fingers) behind this new creative work, kristy. here are just a few things we wanted to know…
Name: Kristy Correy
Born: I’m a child of the 80’s and a Valentine’s Day baby
Siblings: I’m a middle child… Older sister and younger brother
I have a very eclectic taste in music, listening to everything from Beck to the new Beyonce album.
Nicholas Ghesquiere, Pheobe Philo, Kenzo and Acne are probably my favs at the moment.
Favourite travel destination:
New York, London and Berlin (I have family and friends in all these places)
What triggered the creation of Correy and Lyon?
I was living in Berlin for a while and all my friends there are in the creative industries and it inspired me to do my own thing again.
What made you decide to leap from your previous fashion ventures to jewellery?
I could never really find any jewellery that I wanted to wear on a daily basis so I decided to create my own and I also wanted a business that I could run from anywhere in the world.
How did you decide on the name?
The name is a homage to my family, it is my surname and my mothers maiden name.
What is your vision for Correy & Lyon?
Evolving the range and venturing into using stones and creating a few statement pieces and eventually expanding into other accessories.
What can we expect to see in the near future?
I have a handful of new designs that will be available within the next month that I am very excited about!
Where can we buy it?
and here’s a few more picos…
we’re pretty excited about what new goodies will be coming! great materials, great design, and at a great price. yay. thank you kristy.
