Jewellery is the easiest way to give an old outfit a fresh spin—the simplest piece can transform your entire look. It is powerful, and ever-changing, and one jewellery label that’s always reinventing itself is Amber Sceats. For a relatively new brand (it launched in 2012), Amber Sceats has quickly become a go-to for on-trend pieces and a celebrity favourite. We recently sat down with the label’s founder and designer to find out what it takes to become a successful jewellery designer in an industry that’s notoriously tough to crack.

Who What Wear Australia: What was your inspiration or starting point for this collection?
Amber Sceats: I really wanted to strip back a few layers from my past collections. I felt like I needed to take a raw approach and really listen to my creative kick. I kept it simple, sophisticated, yet innovative—much like my personal style.
Think mixed metals and the exciting introduction of two tone. I feel this collection came together more organically than previous and I am so excited to launch!
WWW: What do you think will be the next big jewellery trends?
AS: Chokers are definitely here to stay. Whether it be more of a leather tie or simple gold accent by day, by night you will see a much bolder approach. It’s such an easy piece to wear too!
In general, for upcoming seasons, I think jewellery will take more of a mixed metal approach—as opposed to the pearl and marbled accents we have seen in the past.

AS: You definitely have to know who you are, what your goals are, and who you want your audience to be. Those are the key factors. Not to mention, of course; passion, motivation and that daring and bold nature to take risks. Plenty of mistakes will be made, but ambition will overpower that. If you love what you do, then do it!
