Don’t be surprised if you find yourself staring. It’s to be expected when you get the first glimpse of the gorgeous designs in PICHULIK’s new SS15 Baraka collection, a bold, bright homage to spiritual and traditional jewellery customs carried through the centuries. Each handcrafted piece echoes the symbolic shades and silhouettes of North African and Middle Eastern architecture. It’s a feast for the eyes and we love how the pieces adapt to any look, be it everyday outfit or stylish couture!

“Jewellery has always been linked to spirituality and important rites of passage,” says Katherine-Mary Pichulik, the super-talented pâtissier-turned-jewellery-designer behind the brand. “Pieces were crafted with a purpose and imbued with powers such as protection and healing.”
Derived from the Arabic “barakah”, meaning “blessing”, the Baraka collection is unique in that no two pieces are alike yet all were made to be worn together in perfect harmony. And unlike previous collections, PICHULIK stuck to a limited colour palette for Baraka, using specific hues that echo the paradise, purity and sacred heritage within the kingdoms that inspired its designer.
Long Glass Mink and Single Jade Stone Mink neckpieces
