My Favourite Thing: My Liz Goldwyn Bracelet
By Nathalie Kabiri from Kabiri
‘My fascination with jewellery started during my teenage years, from buying bits of jewellery from markets and bead shops. My mum has always been into jewellery. In the Eighties she was into Butler and Wilson, but also bought more fine and contemporary pieces and mixed them together. It’s that kind of mix-and-match aesthetic that is interesting to me as a jewellery shop owner.
‘This is a Liz Goldwyn bracelet that I bought for the shop about seven years ago. Liz Goldwyn was a designer based in Los Angeles and at the time she had a cult status. We were very lucky to stock her and, rather than put the bracelet on sale, I decided to keep it. For me it’s quite sentimental because it’s one of the first pieces we bought for the store. It symbolises a lot of different things: the story of our shop, the fact that the most amazing things are sometimes the most difficult to sell, and the fact that you have to believe in them.’
