I used to really not like ‘real’ jewellery – the type of stuff that needed real skill to make, as opposed to the things you could buy in Topshop for a fiver. Nowadays I’m all about smaller, beautifully made trinkets. Instagram is a total enabler of this – turns out so is Twitter, after I was followed by Oh My Clumsy Heart and I instantly fell for their dainty minimalism. Also, I really wish their Petunia necklace wasn’t sold out.
Hex Rings by Alexis Russell
I’ve been loving geometric designs for a while now, but it’s about time I bought some decent rings that aren’t spray-painted ‘gold’ and won’t turn my finger green… shout out here for the jeweller in Upstate NY who made my beautiful custom engagement ring, Alexis Russell Design. There’s something wonderfully rustic about her handmade hex stacking rings. Post payday, I might have to add these to my small ‘collection’.
