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

Hometown: Perth

Siblings: I’m a middle child… Older sister and younger brother

Favourite musician/s:
I have a very eclectic taste in music, listening to everything from Beck to the new Beyonce album.

Favourite designer/s:
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?

Inspiration

So I’m currently supposed to be finishing my assignment. But I got highly inspired while researching – and not in the way that was helpful. In fact I have managed to get highly distracted… Good work Dan.

So while researching on rock artists from the 50’s and 60’s I’ve come across some gorgeous photos. It’s amazing how these photos were produced to raw. Today we do everything digital and then try to make it look grungy and cool with editing. Clearly they were cooler than us with their less advanced technology back then. mmm I remember making a new years resolution that I would take more black and white photos – told you I wouldn’t stick to it. But here are some for your viewing pleasure anyway. Maybe now I’ll be inspired to take some of my own…

 

 

Take me back to the fifties any day.
