Bibi Bijoux has long been a jewellery favourite here at QVC and their Today's Special Value bracelet offers have always gone down a storm. So, to help you get a jewellery wardrobe to be proud of we are introducing their first ever necklace TSV tomorrow (Friday 5th April) on QVC!
Designed especially for QVC, this gorgeous braided leather necklace features butterfly, heart and Swarovski Crystal Element charms. Available in classic Black, Grey or Nude, and the fun and on-trend Brick Red or Mint Green, this stunning design is a wonderful addition to any collection.
We caught up with founders of Bibi Bijoux, sisters Diana and Wendy, to tell us more about both the brand and this fab new design…
We founded Bibi Bijoux in 1999 with the aim of creating a new and different selection of jewellery. Nowadays, Bibi Bijoux has developed into an international brand with a comprehensive collection. Always surprising and trendy, every design is still handcrafted in our own studio in the Netherlands and evolve from human hands rather than from a drawing board.
How do you come up with new ideas and what are your key inspirations?
We get our inspiration from the smallest things, this could be anything, from a lost charm to an antique necklace – creative processes cannot be rushed! Down to the very last moment the designs get reshaped and improved.
We get the most inspiration from travelling all over the world – a different environment with a lot of new opportunities is a great mix to get fresh inspiration. Other sources of inspiration are buying every magazine there is about fashion, visiting a lot of trade shows each year, enjoying catwalk shows and watching the fashion channel in most of our spare time. It's a lot of work but it's a hobby that we are very lucky to have become our work, resulting in a company we can be proud of.
What makes the Today's Special Value necklace special?
We kept in the mind the feedback given from QVC and our customers. This necklace was designed with elegant and fashionable women in mind, and from this we decided the mix of leather, sleek silver-look metal and Swarovski Crystal Elements would be perfect. Every detail is important to us so we also added little crystals on the butterfly to give the wings extra sparkle and an additional dimension.
What are your top picks from the show?
Including the TSV necklace, we are bringing you lots of new designs. This easy-to-wear and fashionable half leather bracelet features a crystal heart charm and is available in gorgeous neon colours that are very trendy this summer.
This great snake-print leather bracelet with heart charms and a magnetic closure is also one of our favourites, and this eye-catching wide bracelet with many Swarovski Crystal Elements features our newly-designed magnetic lock and comes straight from our spring/summer 2013 collection.
Tune into QVC TV tomorrow (Friday 5th March) at midnight, 4am, 7am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 10pm to see the Today's Special Value necklace and the latest collection.
