My lovely friend Jasmine of Gala Curios fame is one very talented lady. Not only is she an extraordinary jewellery designer but the lookbooks she produces for her collection season after season, year after year, are always the most eagerly awaited in my inbox. Working with quite possibly the best stylist in Sydney (after me of course..jokes) Paul Bui, the images accompanying the jewellery always and without fail, take my breath away. To help celebrate the launch of Gala Curios's SS2011 collection MONO NO AWARE, which hits stores in early August we are teaming up to offer you, my sweet and loyal readers, one hell of a prize pack.

1 x Pyramid Earring Silver - valued at $120
1 x Accordion Bangle Oil - valued at $285
1 x The Passing Pendant Gold - valued at $130
1 x Sting of Remorse Ring Rose Gold - valued at $99
Total Prize Value = $634


How to win?
Like the Gala Curios facebook page and answer this question "What is your favourite piece from Gala Curios's MONO NO AWARE collection?" on the wall then copy+paste that answer in the comments of this blog post. Simple.
The competition closes at 5pm AEST on Monday August 1st and is open to international readers and locals alike. The winner will be chosen by random thanks to random.org.

My answer is pretty obvious. As has been well documented on my blog over the years I love a bold statement necklace. This Gala Curios Ephemere Necklace in Rose Gold ticks many boxes for me. Its gold, bold and most importantly beautiful. I also love the small details, like the powdercoated chain and silk ribbon fastening.

  12. The accordian bangle! Adore it! It suits my typical Melbourne ethos of layering black on black on black. But always with an interesting twist!

  13. How could I go past the EPHEMERE COLLAR in antique gold? It's beautiful and I'm a sucker for anything floral and a big statement necklace. The two combined is perfection! It would look fabulous with everything from a casual jeans and loose tee ensemble, to a glamorous frock for a night on the town.

  18. It’s difficult for me to choose only one favourite piece out of Gala Curios's MONO NO AWARE collection. The concept of the collection is strong and clear, definitely making us go ‘ahhhh’ and appreciating the beauty of each individual piece. However, I do only have to pick one. So for me, it would have to be the ‘EPHEMERE COLLAR, Rose Gold. Brass & copper with gold plating & powdercoating, hand-dyed silk ribbon.’ What I really appreciate about this piece is that it’s incredibly whimsical and enchanting. The design is beautiful and delicate, especially with the silk tie at the back, rather than just an ordinary clasp. This piece would make any woman feel feminine, delicate and pretty.

  22. My favourite piece from Gala Curios's MONO NO AWARE collection is the EPHEMERE HEADBAND in rose gold. It quite literally took my breath away. I can imagine placing it upon my head and feeling like the greek goddess of springtime, Persephone or like Helen of Troy. The entire collection is heartbreakingly exquisite but I am now coveting this piece like a much needed organ transplant. Such an amazing collection and such an amazing competition, thanks Hayley.

  26. there are so many beautiful pieces in the MONO NO AWARE collection, complimented by the absolutely gorgeous styling and photographs. My favourite piece though is the passing ring, its not often that I like rings but on the rare occasion when there are rings that make me catch my breath I reconsider my thoughts on rings entirely.

    ReplyDelete
  27. How can I pick just one favorite from the Mono No Aware Collection? My stand out favorite is the Sting of Remorse Headband. Its strong, bold and looks brilliant with both so many kinds of hairstyles! I would wear it day in and day out!

  94. LOVE the ephemere brooch in gold, just gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  95. AHHHH I'm obsessed with this. Instantly. The whole collection really speaks to me. My favorite design objects are always pieces that are overtly feminine with a hard edge added to them - and the metal florals speak perfectly to that aesthetic.

    It was hard to pick just one piece (I love the double finger "sting of remorse" ring, and the hairpieces, and, and and...) but my favorite piece from the MONO NO AWARE collection is Ephemere Collar in Rose Gold. The color, combined with the chain detailing, ribbon, and florals make it the perfect statement piece. I might just have to buckle down and have it sent over to the US....

    ReplyDelete
  96. My favourite piece from Gala Curios's MONO NO AWARE collection is the Ephemere Earring. I love the delicate natural detail combined with the chains <3.

  100. I love the Passing Pendant! It's color is beautiful and modern. I'm a bit of a political person and I think the message it carries is something I can appreciate.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I'm really loving the entire collection! The piece that really sticks out to me is the simple Passing Pendant. It has a great chain and the pendant of the hands gives it a special political meaning that I can appreciate. I also think it'd look great layered with other necklaces or worn alone as a great statement piece.
