FROM A POCKET SCARF TO A BRACELET

In november my editor-in-chief at Enquire Magazine asked me to write an article about Lucy Jay, an emerging londoner designer specialized in the creation of scarves and foulards with very particular patterns.
When I saw her website, I immediately felt in love with her creations, so colorful and original and I've decided to buy one.
Since the prices of the scarves were too expensive for my budget, I've turned down to a pocket foulard with an optical print which is very 80's. I've decided to make it a bracelet, using recycled aluminium rings which were part of a old necklace I don't use anymore. 
The result made me very satisfied, this bracelet gives a touch of colour to my wrist that is really needed in those grey winter days.
What do you think? Like it or not?
This is the article I wrote about Lucy Jay:


A novembre la mia capo-redattrice ad Enquire Magazine, mi aveva proposto di scrivere un articolo su una certa Lucy Jay, designer londinese specializzata nella creazione di sciarpe e foulard con stampe molto particolari. 
Quando ho visto il sito della designer in questione, mi sono innamorata delle sue creazioni, così colorate e originali, quindi ho deciso di approfittarne per acquistarne una. 
Visto che i prezzi per le sciarpe erano un tantino alti per il mio budget, ho ripiegato su un pocket foulard con una stampa optical molto anni '80. 
Ho poi deciso di farne un braccialetto, fermandolo con anelline in alluminio riciclato che facevano parte di una mia vecchia collana. 
Il risultato mi ha convinta subito, da un tocco di colore e luce al polso che in queste grigie giornate d'inverno è quello che ci vuole.
Che ne dite? 
Questo è l'articolo che ho scritto su Lucy Jay:
