We do this song and dance every year and I’m sure some of you are familiar with it.
Mom and Dad: “Honey what would you like for Christmas”
Me: “Nothing guys I’m fine, really”
Mom and Dad: “No we want to get you something nice but you’re so hard to shop for”
Me: “Mom, Dad you’re saying you don’t know what I like? Really? Time to start reading my blog, I’d say!
This is part of a collection by Lesley Strickland in London. I love Lesley’s work for it’s use of material Cellulose Acetate which is derived from cotton oil (lengthy technical explanation here) and sterling silver. I love it for it’s warm smooth feel but more importantly, I love it for it’s color choices.The “One Off” ring (top) is my favorite, so again, last minute Christmas-gift-seekers seek no more. And the Jetson Brooch (above) is one of the few brooches I’d ever consider wearing.
Most pieces are available in any of these colors or a combination thereof.
And finally the drop petal earrings round off the ensemble. So yeah, no more excuses guys, start shopping.
