Petrichoralia / Berlin-ready concrete jewellery

With its industrial material and geometric shape, it’s a beautiful, brutalist creation that is perfect for fist pumping to any factory-fuelled techno tune.

Alongside the labels, records, promoters and venues, style is a big part of clubbing culture. Dressing up, ‘feeling the part’ and donning your dance-floor armour is as much an element of the revellery fuelled lifestyle as the actual dancing that takes place in your latest finds, and we only need to look at ringleaders such as the dashingly dressed Andrew Weatherall or Robot Heart aficionado, Damian Lazarus for proof of this.

So, I’m going to tell you about a local brand that is responsible for my latest disco dressing weapon. Petrichoralia.

This Derby based, husband and wife ran business hand-crafts jewellery and accessories from concrete, with the odd helping of silver or gold paint to finish. Its range includes cufflinks, earrings, necklaces and more, but it was the ring that won me over.

With its industrial material and geometric shape, it is a beautiful, brutalist creation that is perfect for fist pumping to any factory-fuelled techno tune. With a trip to Berlin coming up, I’m hoping that when my fingers are crossed wearing a ring as appropriate as this, it’ll give me the luck I need to gain entry to that elusive techno church.

As well as its Etsy store, Petrichoralia is stocked at the Avenue BC shop in Sneinton market, but I hunted down my hard-wearing knuckle duster at the Handmade Nottingham market.

Happy browsing x
