《南聊》Avril Jewelry 璦薇兒

【姊妹倆的飾品夢想】- Avril Jewelry 璦薇兒
地址:台南市中西區康樂街411號對面貨櫃第二間
The No.2 container house across from: No.411, Kangle St., West Central Dist., Tainan City.
受訪人: Anna、Doris
台南人。

在台南手作市集圈已奠定十年基礎的璦薇兒,是一對姊妹的飾品夢想,更是她們彼此支持的設計品牌。姊姊Anna大學讀的是廣告設計,專攻蠟雕和金工,喜歡公仔和在二手市場挖寶,創作靈感多半來自生活日常和私人喜好。妹妹Doris大學念的是服裝設計,喜歡流行感強烈的東西,忙碌的生活多半藉由旅行調劑,時常飛往韓國取經,首爾就像是她的第二個家。個性互補,喜好迥異的姊妹倆讓璦薇兒成為包含兩個設計師的品牌,迷人也多元。

Anna的飾品主要分為幾個系列:表現親子互動的沙野兔、植物和礦石等反映出她生活及喜好的創作。常常有客人會找她訂製飾品,對她來說「不那麼完美的東西」更有其迷人之處,曾經有過客人拿旅途中撿到的石頭、重要晚宴後吃剩的貝殼和孩子的乳牙來給Anna製作,對她們來說,故事性和趣味兼具的飾品也讓她們以創作方式和客人分享交流了生活的點滴。

一件飾品的製作往往需要花上二至三週的時間,除了提供有質感的配件給消費者外,Anna也不定期在各個空間舉辦課程,除了讓學員可以直接動手製作專屬於自己的配件外,也希望能傳遞「每項工藝的製作技法都需要時間,並且都有其專門領域之技術」的觀念。上一間店落腳在正興街的璦薇兒,2015年過年搬到康樂街以「貨櫃屋」方式展店,結合附近的鳳滷味、彩虹咖啡、Day Drink,不定期舉辦康樂街市集,串聯的不只是店家,也讓附近居民偶爾能在這熱鬧一下,促進鄰里感情。開業至今最大的挑戰除了平衡工作與生活外,同時也需維持兼具製作和零售的空間。2017年姊妹倆都期待更多元的合作機會,也希望推出新一系列的設計作品讓更多人能以平實的價格體驗到精緻的配件妝點每一天的生活。

Doris的散步及景點推薦:下午兩點到五點的樹林街一帶,可以靜謐的觀察光影變化;水交社工藝聚落、體育場;Anna則推薦安平巷弄找風獅爺。

姊妹倆的好吃去處:水仙宮、保安宮、成大都有好選擇,最喜歡肉燥飯和米糕。
