AL-MA has quickly become an FJ favourite. We’re a little bit biased towards Melbourne designers, but when the pieces are this beautifully handcrafted, our bias seems justified.
Lauren Di Palma is the creative behind this label and draws on her experience as a trained art therapist and her passion for paints, pens, paper and ceramics.
The debut collection is a stunner. Titled Nova Stellar (New Star), the range takes inspiration from star alignments and elemental geology. The earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets are all distinct pieces with intriguing arrangements of crystals, beads and pearls.
Our favourites include the evil eye bracelets, the orb crystal drop earrings, and the chilli necklace. If you’re a lover of delicate jewellery, AL-MA is our choice for something a little more interesting, and a lot more thoughtful.
