Jewellery display DIY

DIY tutorial: turn a tray into a jewellery display

My jewellery collection is ever-growing, and I was finding favourites could sometimes get buried and lost for a while. So I decided to upcycle a tray to make a display that can look pretty while keeping my favourite necklaces and bracelets organised. This is the second in what will be a trilogy (ha!) of DIY projects for Wayfair. Hop on over ...

With Mother's Day on Sunday, what better time to share this story of a mum and daughter who recently launched their first jewellery collection. Helen and Annie Rennison have always shared a passion for design and creativity and Renné Jewellery was born in early 2014. They'd been unable to find UK stockists of the old, characterful jewellery they were ...

Pandora Wishes launch, Leeds

Pandora Wishes launch Leeds with Jamie and Louise Redknapp

A few days ago, I was named best friend in the world. The award-giver was my friend Emma, a pretty huge Jamie Redknapp fan. I'd been invited to an event in Leeds that the Redknapps were attending, and I'd got her along as my plus one. It was the launch of Pandora's winter Pandora Wishes campaign, backed ...

I have a mild jewellery addiction. My achilles heel is the statement necklace. They just seem to have the power to make an outfit look 'wow', don't you think? Cases in point. (sources: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4) My collection is growing all the time. Here are my current top six. It's unlikely to stop there. These are just ...

For a good while now, I've been lusting after pairs of hanging earrings with colourful, clustered gemstones, the likes of those sold by J.Crew and Mawi.

As a fan of wearing a stack of bracelets on my wrists, of course I'm going to be in favour of something that gives you two- or three-in-one. Summer may be just about over but that doesn't have to mean an end to some laid-back wrist candy with a bit of a boho vibe. A leather wrap ...

cate wood jewellery and her eclectic vintage home

A few days ago I spent a fun morning styling a few outfits around pieces made by Yorkshire jewellery maker Cate Wood. We met at her home, a cute, stone-built property in a courtyard in Huddersfield. As well as getting to see her creations at close quarters, exploring her home was a fascinating bonus. Cate's home turned ...

DIY sparkly ear cuff

ear cuff street style

I've been spying these kinds of awesome ear cuffs around the net for a while. (via Pinterest/Who What Wear) I waited faithfully for a long time for them to start appearing on the British high street but, alas, they didn't come (or at least I didn't see them). So it was one Saturday, before I had an evening ...
