We are crazy for organic textures here at RJL, and we have been long time fans of the seriously beautiful klaylife hand made clay beaded chandeliers, so when we heard a whipser they had launched a new collab we just had to find out more…
There’s something special about klaylife beads. Perhaps it is the fact that each bead is formed using raw clay local to the small South African community who makes them. Or perhaps it’s the fact the clay is then rolled by hand before being sun-dried, kiln-fired and dip-dyed. Each bead is unique and holds its own story.
So when the Melbourne based Father/Daughter Duo asked themselves, “what else can we do with our beads other than chandeliers and jewellery?”, the answer was immediate – Wall Hangings.
Enter Three Queens Interiors – a lifestyle label based on the Mornington Peninsula, founded by artist Elena Martorella. When klaylife approached Elena to see if she’d be interested in incorporating their beads into her handmade pieces, the immediate answer was yes. Both brands create unique, hand-made pieces using old craft techniques and are inspired by texture aiming to bring dimension and personality into any home.
Elena’s belief is, “Things that are handmade can be the most beautiful, because you have a direct connection to a human soul.” Klaylife couldn’t agree more.
The enjoyment of owning a Three Queens Interiors x klaylife Wall Hanging is enriched by the knowledge its very existence has made a positive contribution to a small community so in need of a helping hand.
The Range, comprised of 10 one off wall hangings, launches TODAY will be sold online only at www.threequeensinteriors.com and www.klaylife.com . Prices range from $450AUD – $895AUD, with free global shipping.
