2016

"FIONA" The newest addition to the ENARMOUR Etsy Store

The not-so-new new year is in full swing and for the past few months ENARMOUR has been on an unofficial hiatus. The behind the scenes work never stops but I felt it necessary to release an official update on the progress of the company and an outlook on 2016. 

My adventure abroad continues and for the next few months I will continue my stay in FNQ, followed by a road trip to the south of the country which will culminate my stint in Australia. No dates have yet been finalized but I'm anticipating being back in Canada some time late summer. Upon my return back home I will be able to immerse myself 110% in ENARMOUR but for now it's baby steps. 

This trip has been an incessant source of inspiration - from the immaculate landscape of the tropical rainforests and the expansive countryside of the far north, to the unique architectural customs of Queensland and its fascinating critters. Being surrounded by so much natural beauty is overwhelming, in the best possible way. The lines of the landscapes, the colours of the sunsets, the patterns on the tree branches continue to fuel my creative drive and for the next few months I will be imbibing as much as possible the culture and the landscape of this beautiful land.

Aside from a few experimental designs and a handful of fresh pieces, 2016 will not see the release of a comprehensive new collection. I will continue to explore different techniques, try new materials and overall expand my technical and creative repertoire so stay tuned for the occasional new release on ETSY, but for the most part, 2016 will be a year enveloped by an alluring gauze of secrecy and free-spirited self-exploration. 

All my love,

Jana

Cardwell Jetty Markets

Jana Gumovsky

We're now on the next leg of our Australian adventure and for the next few months our home is Cardwell, Queensland. It's a small fishing town in the far north with a budding tourism sector. A few years ago it was hit hard by Cyclone Yasi that left the town devastated (the size of the cyclone was geographically larger than all of Great Britain!). Today, this picturesque town  is building itself back up and is well on its way to becoming a staple in the touristic landscape of FNQ.

We arrived on Sunday, Nov 22 and I soon discovered that the town hosts a local market by the jetty on the last Saturday of every month. Called the Cardwell Jetty Market, it showcases local arts and crafts, toys, clothes, housewares and even homemade pies and preserves. The upcoming market being the last for the year as the organizers close up shop over the wet season (the season which brings along heavy rain and the possibility of cyclones). I decided to jump on the chance and showcase ENARMOUR in Cardwell and maybe help some of the locals out with their Christmas shopping ;)  The amount of visitors wasn't very great, as most tourists don't come up north during the incredibly hot and humid summer while a lot of the locals leave to the South of Australia to escape the heat.

The ENARMOUR stall was still a success! The designs turned many heads and a few lucky daughters, granddaughters and girlfriends will soon be sporting some unique bracelets, necklaces and body chains.

Back in Canada summer is far gone, but in tropical Far North Queensland it's just the beginning of what will be a hot and humid season. But before the rains start I can keep enjoying the never-ending summer days. 

Today's dress-up features the LUNA Chain Belt, ARROW Hand Chain and FABERGE Chain Bracelet.

Have a wonderful weekend xoxo


Hallowe'en Inspiration

Jana Gumovsky

Halloween is just over a month away so it's time to start thinking ahead and planning that awesome costume that will be the envy of all your friends. The great thing about the bold designs of ENARMOUR pieces is that many of them can double as stylish and fitting accessories to a variety of costume ideas. 

The Harem Dancer

This is a beautiful, feminine character concept for those not into the scary costumes (there's always the option of being a zombie harem dancer but that's just a matter of preference). Draw inspiration from vintage photos and old movies for a tasteful and unique costume. Pretty much any ENARMOUR body chain fits this concept, particularly the bolder, more intricate designs like the "Strada", "Zenith", and "Rita". 

Zenith

Strada

Rita

Gypsy

The bohemian gypsy wears bright head scarves, flowing skirts and an excessive amount of jewelry. This look is original, stylish and a bit more practical for those celebrating Hallowe'en in colder climates (the gypsy loves to layer!). Awesomely paired with a bold hanging necklace, an ornate slave bracelet like "Zane" or a draping chain belt like "Eugenia". Or all three!

Eugenia

Fortune Teller/ Tarot Card Reader

This is your chance to add a dose of the ominous and spooky into your costume by dressing up as a fortune teller. There's so much room for creativity with this one as you can embody anything from the all-seeing high priestess to the chilling psychic witch. Whichever direction you choose to take this costume, decking it out in opulent chains is sure to deliver maximum impact. Opt for a head chain (to accentuate your all-seeing third eye) and body chains for a gypsy-esque vibe. 

Aphrodite

Anise

Mermaid/ Siren

This is another costume concept that can just as easily go from happy to ghoulish. Thanks to Walt Disney, when thinking about mermaids our mind automatically turns to Ariel and that character in itself can be a beautiful source for Halloween inspiration. But among the category of fantasy water maidens  there are also sea nymps and sirens that aren't as happy and benevolent. Whichever mythological sea creature you choose to embody, the costume can incorporate hanging chains (to represent the chains of a shipwreck or a fishing net) or strands of seashells and pearls - the natural adornments of the sea. 

Bella

Marlowe

Athena

Hope you're feeling inspired to start planning that perfect costume.

Jana
