Chandler House giveaway

Chandler House giveaway

Happy Monday friends! I hope you’re feeling well rested after your weekend and ready for the last week of June! I had a fantastic weekend spent with friends and family and don’t think I’ve laughed so much in ages. So to share some happiness, I have a really awesome giveaway for you today, so read on!

Michael Chandler of Chandler House is one of those rare talents who is constantly coming up with creative new ideas and turning them into reality. From beautiful embroidered cushions to porcelain vases and ornate mirrors and most recently turning his hand to gorgeous pendants. The common theme that runs through his work, is his love of the Cape’s history.

Michael designed his Cape Pendant Collection drawing on inspiration from hours spent getting to know Antique Cape Furniture while working at Sotheby’s and Stephan Welz. He decided to create a jewellery range based on the key-plates found on grand old pieces of Cape Furniture. These escutcheons are smaller versions of the originals, made from brass and sterling silver and combine traditional hand-cut work with laser technology, handcrafted by Nina from inkheart.

Featured at Christopher Strong’s Summer Collection at SA Fashion Week in Johannesburg earlier this year, Michael’s pendants are a must-have. I am the lucky owner of one of his 18th Century, Rococo-inspired pendants and I have to admit I am totally in love with it! And today you stand a chance to win one too!

    since we do follow him on twitter, have blogged about him etc, all that is left to do is to say: I would proudly wear one of his pendants – they would all work for me, but the one that is most appealing is in the first of your images, far right hand corner. Hot stuff.

    I love most of the things but there were 3 that stuck out for me:

    1. the background of the website! I love it

    2. The ceramics section! The pastel yellow vase (omg) and those whirlwind black and white plates… I love the fact that you can see they are handpainted.

    3. Overall favourite is the pendants, they make such a statement. I'm particularly fond of the small variation… so dainty, feminine and unique. god! I want one!
