Dear I Love Candy-ers,
I’m very sorry I’ve been a tad rubbish with the ol’ blogging malarky. It’s been a crazy, busy year so far and it’s only just April!
Any who, enough of the excuses. Since starting my yoga teacher training studies, and travelling around Thailand I’ve been feeling very inspired by spiritual symbols in jewellery. I’ve now set up my little jewellery making desk so can crack on with making some divine pieces.
At present, I’m loving these amazing jewellers who, like me take inspiration from spirituality, buddhism and ancient Asian art and culture.
I came across this lovely brand when my friend bought me a hand of Fatima charm friendship bracelet a few years ago and have been wearing it ever since. I love this because not only are Tilly Sveaas’s pieces affordable but they’re so small that it takes for someone who notices the tiny details to notice, and to me that’s what makes something stand out.
This jewellery has come about as a direct reaction to yoga and travelling in Thailand. Their collection of lotus influenced rings and bangles are particularly lovely. They’ve managed to keep it minimal and contemporary and have maintained an essence of natural beauty with a handmade and hammered effect.
For those who are in the know about mala beads, these girls make some beautiful ones. They are a little expensive and based in the U.S but it’s really nice to see mala beads have a bit of a re-style. Not only are these beautiful pieces a gorgeous piece of jewellery, they add a certain something glamourous to your meditation session. I’m almost certain that my meditation will be much better if I have one of these, therefore I think I might have to treat myself to one (well, the bank might have to).
They also do really nice necklaces and such for those not into the meditation lark. I’ve got my eye on a tiger’s eye art deco style necklace to start, and the list goes on and on.
