What is kitsch?
Kitsch is such a hard thing to describe. It’s a kind of bad taste with a style all of it’s own. It’s unusual, ugly, cute and crazy, unconventional, unexpected and unique! How can one word, kitsch mean all those things? Well I’ll try to show you with examples of some of the pieces on my site:
See this very kitsch diamonte watch I wear whenever I’m in one of my exuberant moods, which is most of the time, to the horror of many of my friends whose expression, ” How Vulgar!” lasts as long as it takes to try it on.
Rather like Elizabeth Taylor’s 33ct emerald cut diamond ring given to her by Richard Burton, (as with all sensible women, partially bought by her. She was richer than all her men friends!)
Those exact words, “How Vulgar” were uttered by Princess Margaret to Elizabeth Taylor whose repost was, “not so vulgar when you try it on, is it?!”
Kitch can be Religious!
See this stunning large glass cross which is so fantastic and unusual that it creates very surprising and unexpected comments when worn. As in all kitsch pieces, it demands a response from the viewer. So if you want to be noticed in a stylish way, and are big like me, this is the piece for you!
Kitch can be Cute!
Like this Swarovski silver earring and necklace set with pink hearts. Perfect for a party or cutsey girl outfit!
The diamonte look is also never out of fashion. Think 1920′s glitz and glamour onwards. Everyone likes a bit of a sparkle in their lives, so match this up with a fab black, pink or silver party frock and you’ll be the belle of the ball!
Kitsch can be Funky!
Like these real natural Chinese pearls left to grow their own organic way.
Aren’t they strange and kind of ugly? But that’s kitsch too! Kitsch is such a niche word with so many looks. You really need to join the kitsch club to properly understand the style.
This necklace looks great on black for the evening but shimmers nicely on bare skin too for daytime wear. It’s versatile kitsch!
Kitsch can be Married!
Like this fingerprint ring I had made for clients. They didn’t just want fingerprint rings, they wanted to wear eachother’s fingerprints!
This kind of look is always in vogue. It’s timeless kitsch.
Chic but not cheap!
