Hello Summer! Hello Color! Hello Radiance! I love super fun colorful jewelry, wouldn’t ya know? This collection by Ayala Bar totally caught my eye as I was bopping around looking at jewelry. I’ve been neck high in vintage jewelry research as we get ever closer to launching our site. I like to take a break every so often and just randomly go pinning from site to site as I find gorgeous things to go on my never ending addiction to Pinterest.
Summer 2015 Radiance Necklace in Blue Hues by Ayala Bar
I love nothing more than to find fabulously designed jewelry that just screams out, “I’m fun, pretty, and not to be taken very seriously.” The new Radiance collection by Israli jewelry designer Ayala, did just that. Actually her jewelry reminded me first of a Kaffe Fassett quilt. (I added a few ***Kaffe Fasset photos at the end of the post, in case you have no idea who I’m talking about…..totally normal!)
It’s almost like each piece looks embroidered and quilted with brilliant color combos in a kaleidoscope of fun shapes. This is a definite Summer collection of jewelry but would sure brighten up the long dark days of Winter too!!!

The only thing I wish this collection had were names to their pieces vs. #0615. But whatever! I’m still nutso over these pieces with or without a name! I honestly could look at Ayala’s designs all day, they are happy, bright, and full of lively texture! (Note to self-I use exclamation marks way too much, I don’t shout that much when I talk.)

These remind me of awesome colored bedding from Anthropologie, don’t know why. Maybe because…..Ayala started in fabrics and sewing, not jewelry. The collaging of different textures from yarns to beads to metals is what she has interjected into her unique jewelry collections. It’s fascinating stuff!

I love the rhinestone poking through, almost like they have been encased between two settings….I’m liken’ it a lot!

Again, reminds me of more Kaffe Fasset, the color combos and the boho styled flowers are making me dream of his quilts and fabric.

As I said earlier in the post, Kaffe Fasset is a genius in my opinion. He is an English designer, most known for his quilts. He is an amazing talent! His use of color and patterns is insane. Fasset is also an accomplished painter, fabric designer, knitter, and a whiz at needlework. Below are just a few photos from his site to illustrate his awesomeness and to point out why Ayala Bar reminded me of Kaffe Fasset.
