What does your jewellery say about you?
Ella: I usually look for unique pieces at
vintage markets, rare finds which come with little back stories
from the 60s. For my 21st I designed my own bespoke necklace which
was then handmade, I had something in mind but I couldn't find
exactly what I had imagined - I wanted it to be completely personal
to me, one of a kind and now holds a memory with it.
Nicola: I'm a total magpie and don't feel ready
for the day unless I'm layered in some jewellery, I prefer the more
is more approach! I collect it from everywhere I go so I love that
I carry these little stories and nuggets of history around with me.
My great nans turqoise wedding ring sits with one I
got from a market on holiday 20 years ago.
Fiona: I'm drawn to pieces with an organic
shape and feel - i also love green - emerald & peridot are
always a favourite.
Trix: I love wearing jewellery that reminds me
of a person or memory, I think it's such a wonderful way of keeping
a loved one close to you. I have a few pieces that I have worn
everyday since receiving them as gifts years ago, and every time I
glance at my wrist and see a bangle or ring, I
feel a reminder of that person and day. I love picking out
jewellery for gifts too, such as picking the perfect gem colour I
know that will really speak to the receiver, it's a little piece of
love that they can keep with them always.
