I’ve decided that I actually have mama envy. I need to coin a term for it, #mamenvy or something less shit. Anyway. One of the mamas that I am girl crushing on right now is Kelly from Cult of Youth. Mama to Elvis and creator of the necklace on my wish list, if I could decide which one I wanted, mama, initials or the skull. We all know how much I love a skull….. She’s frigging amazing and I love her style, from her Instagram profile to her jewellery range. Go shop, thank me later.
Three items you can’t live without?
My bed, my phone and my Double Initial Chain. I have a seventeen week old baby so we’ve spent the last few months holeing ourselves away, watching old films under the covers and getting to know eachother. It’s been good to have maintained a connection to the outside world with a bit of Instagram! Getting dressed has definitely changed since having a baby, very simple and functional. I always make sure I’m wearing my rings and a chain from the new collection as it makes me look a bit more polished, even if I don’t feel it! At the moment I alternate between the MAMA and Elvis’s initials.
The meal you would cook to impress someone?
I love microwave Mac n Cheese but that’s a bit rank isn’t it?!
Where you get your inspiration from?
I am inspired by people. I love having coffee on the Kingsland Road and people watching! Instagram is also a great source. @eimearvarianbarry has one of my fave insta accounts (she’s just as gorgeous in real life.) I wish my desk looked a little more like hers! @mothersmeetings hold lots of events including a monthly business club which always inspires me. When it comes to designing, I tend to work with materials first and then build a collection around them. Last season I was obsessed with crystal quartz, this current collection is very personal. I make each piece by hand so I wanted to use that as a design focus. Each piece is completely unique to it’s owner!
