Jewellery is very often the last justifiable purchase on a girl's very busy list of things to buy. We balk at spending money on something frivolous and lovely when we have food, clothes, mortgage and endless bills to pay for. But I would argue that nothing beats the purchase and wearing of a piece of individual jewellery which will live on long after your Agnes B cashmere cardi has given up the ghost.
Since the dawn of time women have used body adornment as a reflection of the inner self. Worn to show status, rank, culture, political or religious afflilations, jewellery can be an artistic display but also a talisman, giving protection to the wearer. This may sound superstitious, but we all have that favourite piece of jewellery that we miss when removed and couldn't bear to live without.
Many of my pieces are named after Goddesses of the sea. I have a passion for myths & legends, inspired by my teacher of Classics at Plockton High school; a formidable and take-no-prisoners Mrs Murchison. A piece of jewellery can truly make you feel like a Goddess. Whether you are overwhelmed with deadlines, frazzled with toddlers or teenagers , caring for elderly parents , going through a relationship breakdown, feeling fat and dreading summer ...take some time to choose a piece of silver that will make you feel better, stronger, beautiful. Because jewellery looks good on all shapes and sizes. On all ages. On any skin.
