Kipkalinka; ‘until death do us part’ skull adorned wedding ring sets
Do you know Kipkalinka? Then you will know how amazing it is that Legend Bridal is now a stockist and THE ONLY place in the UK where you can see her work in person! We’re still getting our heads round that.
From Vikings to Vintage, Rockabilly and Flapper, Bohemian and Gypsy and Gothic. Not to mention Steampunk and Unicorn and Mystical and Woodland and Mermaid and Goddess and every kind of fairy tale and LEGEND in between…we just live to design and create the gowns that are part of a wedding that is unique to you and wondrously way out. Oh now did I mention Gothic? Because that particular dark magic is one very close to our Legend hearts.
We have drooled over Kipkalinka’s work for a few years now, so when Kipkalinka reached out we were like dark brides let loose in the crypt as we literally lust over the truly stunning, hand smithed, Gothic wedding jewellery that she creates in her studio in Leipzig, Germany.
With years of training and experience as a goldsmith behind her and an eye for Gothic beauty, this woman forges the most exquisite pieces from gold and silver using luscious gemstones, held in place and adorned by the most delicate and beautiful hand crafted skulls you can imagine. Now we know that Gothic jewellery is most often big and bold, and we absolutely love all that, however Kipkalinka has managed to craft something that we here at Legend feel has all the striking Gothic beauty that we know and love, but that has a such a fine ethereal quality all of its own.
Not only are we in love with her work, we just love the sentiment that inspires her to create such loveliness. Kipkalinka writes, ‘I adore the fact that my creation will last longer than me. Within the resistant material my ideas become immortal, so a piece of my soul will become part of your life’ Now is doesn’t get more Gothically romantic than that, not ever.
ALL of us here at Legend have been designing our own perfect combination, trying on the different styles and seeing how perfectly the bands hug the stones. It’s addictive! and with so many options our choices are so wildly different from each other that we can safely say that there is definitely a composition to resonate with every soul.
We are at an exciting time in the history of Legend Bridal where we are working very hard to add special collections and the work of unique and talented artists and to our own collection. The wonderful news is that now you can see and touch and try on Kipkalinka pieces in our showroom here at Legend Bridal in Great Harwood. Up to now you had to order online, and while the pictures are stunning and true, browsing and choosing from the real actual pieces is a different experience altogether. You get to see close up how utterly beautiful her pieces are and to try on in the comfort of our showroom. The choice is quite mind blowing as you can commission any of her pieces and have them set with your stone of choice and we do all the work of contacting, ordering and taking delivery. All you need to do is make up your mind, which believe me when I tell you is a task indeed because every single piece is a beauty!
