Since the dawn of her career, luxury jewellery designer Alice Herald has been motivated by her environment, and the release of Our Song, Let’s Fly, the founding collection of her new Herald label, is no exception.
Our Song, Let’s Fly, the first collection in Alice’s Our Song ready-to-wear series, is inspired by the flight of the hummingbird. Perfect in form and weightless in motion, the hummingbird embodies a delicate beauty that is intimately recreated in this intricate collection.
Each carefully-crafted earring, ring and necklace design is a song of light and colour that reflects the vibrancy and grace of this beautiful bird. Created from precious metals and gemstones, each individual piece is drawn by hand and made to order, overseen by Alice herself, to ensure it exudes joyousness and flair.
From tiny white diamonds and black sapphires to vivacious tsavorite and white and yellow golds, Our Song, Let’s Fly is a celebration of intricate design and beautiful craftsmanship, with each stunning piece carefully considered and created to reflect the refined beauty of Alice’s unique designs, and to affect and empower the wearer.
‘I’m really inspired by potential: of my designs, of the gemstones, and how I can affect the wearer and their emotions,’ says Alice, who gets much of her own inspiration from the spectacular lakes, skies and mountains of her hometown of Wanaka in New Zealand’s South Island. ‘There’s something inside that you can’t quite explain, whether it makes you feel warm, or happy – there’s this sense of empowerment that makes you feel slightly different, something that makes you go – “wow”.’
