Even thought I love accessories it’s still always fun to go to a press day especially when you’re enticed by getting your nails done at the DryBy in central London, they do blow drys too but I love getting my nails done. You’re forced to sit still for 20 minutes – it’s like a timeContinue reading

I quite like this silver hummingbird by Silver Fig. Silver Fig is a husband and wife jewellery design team: Neil and Heather Miller, who are based in Johannesburg. They have years of experienceContinue reading

I love a statement necklace but often I find them heavy at the back of the neck and end up taking them off by mid-morning. I’m loving this Erickson Beamon necklace – it’s not too heavy and easy to wear everyday.

At Premiere Classe in Paris there are so many wonderful accessories, and most of them fall under some very clear trends but after a while they can all start to look a little bit too similar so it’s refreshing to see pieces that stand out from the crowd. You can’t help but notice Sarah Angold‘sContinue reading

Love this colourful necklace from Hong Kong designer, Connie Lo. Her label is called Nutcase and all the pieces are fun and bright. Connie studied in the UK but is now based in Hong Kong where these pieces are handmade. You can buy her jewellery on Etsy and most pieces are under £60!

Love this spider crab cuff by Stephen Webster. It’s so much more beautiful on and the picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s white gold with silver and diamonds with black onyx cabochons. The crab even has cute but menacing little eyes.

I love this mirror from Erickson Beamon. It costs about £10,000 – it’s hard to appreciate from this photo, how beautiful and detailed it is. It’s truly bejeweled and has about 80 pairs of earrings in it! Erickson Beamon was launched in 1983 by Karen Erickson, Eric Erickson and Vicki Beamon. They were working withContinue reading

I don’t know of many rock ‘n‘ roll artists who are customizing their own jewellery and then starting their own jewellery company, but that’s exactly what Thomas Sabo did over 30 years ago. Thomas Sabo travelled to Goa, where he bought local silver chains and statement pendants as a way to customize his rockstar look.Continue reading

I recently have been collecting many trinket necklaces. Odds and sods have been an obsession of mine for quite a while, but now to my delight I realise there are so many more pieces I can find to make quirky accessories! Spoons – now who really thought one year ago a teaspoon would be evenContinue reading

I love when a celebrity or public figure wears a hidden gem. It’s so easy to play it safe and chose a well known designer. I think you have to have true style and confidence to wear something just because you like it, and I think it’s great because naturally I want all the smallContinue reading

I love these necklaces – in a way they are more like a collar. There are so many looks you can create with them! A statement necklace like this can spice up a little black dress or dress up a black t-shirt and skinny jeans. I’m not sure which necklace I love the most, maybeContinue reading
