Today on the blog I’m introducing you lovely readers to an Irish handcrafted jewellery brand called Terramor. I’ve always been a big fan of beaded jewellery so I was excited to learn more about this brand and as always, I love supporting Irish businesses. “Click to View Post” under the image to continue reading, learn all about Terramor and see the amazing detail in this crochet necklace…
Alia Moloney founded Terramor Jewellery based on a love for crochet and jewellery-making. She began in late 2010 producing small numbers of baby blankets and rugs before considering what other medium she could turn her new found talent to. After watching some YouTube tutorials Alia decided to order some jewellery making supplies and that was it, Terramor was born in October 2012. As jewellery is a luxury item Alia prefers to use as many ethically produced, sustainable and recycled materials as possible in her creations. “I take pride in every piece of jewellery I create and I tend to design spontaneously,” Alia explains, “I like seeing all the beads and wire in front of me and then just building something beautiful rather than over-thinking it too much. I think this lends to my eclectic collection.” Alia initially found inspiration in a local silver jewellery shop she was working in at the time.
The name itself Terramor is a word the owner chose based on her commitment to create jewellery which is as eco-friendly and ethically sourced as possible. Terramor is the Italian for earth, love.
All Sterling Silver comes from a recycled source. All Beads and gemstones have either been sourced ethically or have been up-cycled from an aged or broken piece of jewellery. All Silver plated wire is either 99.9% pure silver or sterling silver 925, that has been electrostatic-ally applied to pure copper wire and is finished with an anti-tarnish coating.All metals/metal alloys used meet EU regulations and are nickel-free.
I was kindly sent this beautiful hand-crafted necklace which consists of a crochet necklace with blue beading wire. My first impressions of the packaging were – super cute, it seemed to scream ‘earth friendly’ and it was a pleasure to unwrap gently but excitedly. Blue is one of my favourite colours to wear, it really suits my colouring so I was really pleased with the necklace Alia chose to make for me. The length of the necklace ensures it sits quite nicely on my collarbones and looks really pretty over a blouse or dress to wear to the office. I just know that this necklace will add a nice pop of colour to some monochrome or darker outfits and am really looking forward to featuring it in an outfit post soon on the blog. The colours and bead designs look really well with the blue wiring. I think it’s super super pretty and the clasp is really easy to open/close.
