More than just a jewel...

For anyone who knows me, or follows me and my blog, will know that accessories are my tequila to my lemon.
My favorite quality that I look for in jewellery is it's story, does it feel more than a thoughtlessly put together piece, does it have a story to tell. When I stumbled upon  Gypsy Hunter I was overwhelmed with pleasure! 
The pieces are antiques and don't they just feel it. 
I don't overly like mass produced jewellery that, yeah looks nice but has nothing more to it. Don't get me wrong I will still buy into those odd pieces but this is more my style.

Christine Mayrina is the beauty behind Gypsy Hunter. Based in LA, she was always (like me) collecting treasury finds then one day she set off on a mission, she travels around on a treasure hunt seeking out these beautiful pieces from all around the US. I for one plan on visiting her markets as soon as I get to explore the States.

If you are as much in love with this metal as I am then make sure you head over to her site - Gypsy Hunter
and definitely check her out on Instagram too! 

Bad'ass metal clash!

Much Love...

Happy New Year Y'all!! 
2012 was quite a mixed year for me, lot's of ups and downs and I'm still fighting for a secure paid job in London within fashion. However, I am in a very positive place mentally, even though I am going through some massive financial struggles I have no doubt things are going to happen for me. 
I have a lot planned for 2013, lot's of exciting things. Really going to make this year my year! I've shedded my old skin and I'm making things happen now.

Sorry this post doesn't have the most exhilarating imagery these were just iPhone snaps on NYE
Me and my Ozzy mate Chloe worked till 7pm in Shoreditch then quickly freshened up and hit a bar in London to celebrate the New Year. 
Pretty gutted I only seen the fireworks on the TV even though I'm in the City, but plenty more years for that!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year
I'm sorry again for being a ridiculously infrequent blogger!  
Thank you for always popping in to read my blog non the less

Much Love
