What I’m Wearing – Friday 5th December – Svane & Luhrs New Season Colours

This charm jewellery blog continues my (near) weekly What I’m Wearing series with a look at the Svane & Luhrs new season colours. Their leather bracelets are ideal for daily wear and I went so crazy for these colours that they dictated my winter riding wardrobe.

I have the pleasure of working with some of the biggest names in the modular jewellery market. I’m quite protective of my time these days and while I’m always on the look out for new and exciting brands, I’m forced to be selective in regards to what features at Endangered Trolls. Svane & Luhrs are a relatively new brand to my blog so precisely what is it that made me want to work with them? After all there are multiple brands presenting the leather wrap charm bracelet. Quite simply it was a breadth of colour choices available with Svane & Luhrs.

I’ve mentioned before that if I’m searching for a blue bracelet, the chances are high I’m not merely looking for “a blue bracelet.” I’m wanting a specific shade be that royal, navy, powder, cerulean or so on. I’ve never encountered a brand that aim to offer such an enormous variety of colours and for those who love to accessorise it’s exciting. Further to that they allow you to choose even the metallic finish of the lock – perfect!

As part of the Svane & Luhrs Autumn Winter 2014 collection came a variety of new leather shades. If someone had told me at the start of the season I’d go crazy over a curry yellow bracelet I would have laughed. What follows is a perfect example of why sometimes, it’s good to experiment with new things.

This bracelet was sent to me as a sample. I actually appreciate when people send me their own choices because it prevents me erring towards my own comfort zone. I would never have chosen curry yellow. Yet from the moment I unwrapped it had an instant appeal.

I started wearing it on a casual basis as I do all samples, purely to ensure there’s nothing wrong with the function or the quality and I continued to love it. I have pale skin and deep red hair, yellow should not be my colour and still it seemed to work. I started stacking it with my Svane & Luhrs Cobalt Blue Bracelet (my initial pick from the AW2014 collection.)

To describe my lifestyle as active would be an understatement. With horses at home there are no days off and no sleeping late and I spend most of my time in riding wear. I was thrilled when my favourite horsey brand debuted their own autumn winter 2014 collection as featuring lime green with navy contrasts.

The colours aren’t a perfect match as the picture below shows. The Svane & Luhrs bracelet does have more yellow shading (as the name implies.) It’s close enough to ensure I’ve been accessorising both myself and Victor around this initial bracelet though!

For those coveting this bracelet or simply wishing to explore the brand, you can find the entire collection at the Svane & Luhrs online store. Global delivery is of course offered.

Svane & Luhrs New Season Colours Summary

I find leather bracelets a far more comfortable option than a full charm bracelet, particularly for daily wear. I can’t tolerate silver charms digging into my wrists when I’m riding and as my pony has a very full mane, I don’t like to risk anything tangling either. Svane & Luhrs have definitely become my go to brand for leather bracelets this year and again it comes back to their choice of colour.

Right now they’ve launched their Christmas 2014 campaign bracelet in a beautiful festive red. It’s shown with a single pave heart charm and is just ideal for the festive party season and I’m coveting it fiercely. (For reference, they come packaged with the small leather wallets as shown in the picture. It’s a very luxurious finishing touch.)

You’ll also be seeing a second Svane & Luhrs bracelet in coming weeks as I show a sneak peek at my New Years Eve jewellery.

    These are quite lovely. Do any of the LHB brands fit on these?

    • endangeredtrolls

      Sorry Kathie, what do you mean by LHB?

      • kathie

        LHB is large holed bead, such as the silver cored charms Elfbeads, Trollbeads and Redbali Frogs. I like these leather bracelets, and would wear these if the charms would fit. Do not care for TB’s wimpy leather ones and esp. the locking system set up. thanks for any info…kathie

          Hi Kathie,

          Our leather bracelets will fit any charm or pendant with a diameter from 6,2 mm. Please let me know, if this answers your question. I am afraid that I do not know the diameter of the other brands and if they could be used together.

          Kind regards – and have a nice December,
          Heidi, Webmaster – Svane & Lührs

          Hi Kathie,

          No these bracelets are far too thick for the likes of Elfbeads or Trollbeads. They’re more on a par with Story and Rebeligion and designed to hold chunky pieces.

          My best advice for leather for the likes of Elfbeads or Redbalifrog would be to try Pandora.
