This year's sample sale was in Shoreditch. I didn't spend much money but I love everything I did buy, which I am conscientious of! I picked up and put down many amazing handmade pieces, some likely one offs, I regret not buying a statement piece and some jewellery with silver chain but I'm grateful (and also it gives others the chance to choose their favourites!).
The dragon fly earrings are like a mock ivory, very pretty and will coordinate well. The bracelet is my favourite piece as I love the tortoishell chain, these are light to wear and don't tarnish. Tatty Devine is a great business run by women, it's one of the few brands I do wear.
A new brand I've come across providing lasercut jewellery, handmade from France: Jules et Lily. I have been selling off my jewellery collection over the weekends and replacing with careful pieces that are handmade and complement my clothes best. These new sparkly gold mirror pieces look gorgeous with navy and white, my predominate colours. American eagle pendant amd a complementary pin for jackets or shirt pockets. I took these photos early morning in the golden light.
Jule et Lily moon earrings + pendant purchased from Lottie and Lu previously. I really like glitter acrylics and the longer length chain for the moon pendant.
I've ordered a new camera so hoping this will mean fewer deleted out-of-focus photos and I can take sewing photos in lower lights too - a useful specification to look for when purchasing a camera in England.
