“She quietly expected great things to happen to her, and no doubt that’s one of the reasons why they did.” 

~ Zelda Fitzgerald ~

As many of you know, besides detoxing and re~styling your wardrobes, I also work part time at the Laura Lee Jewellery shop in Covent Garden. I like to have a variety of strings to my bow so that life doesn’t get boring & predictable. One day I’m selling diamond necklaces the next I’m on the floor dusting the bottom of a wardrobe. It’s all about meeting new people and working with {mostly} woman to empower, encourage, celebrate and spoil them. Variety is the spiced Chai Latte of my life and no more so is their an ecelectic mix than in our workshop where each piece of LLJ is lovingly handmade by three jewellers ~ Kerry, Hannah & Zelda.

I’ve told you about Hannah De Bruyn before {see HERE} and with her new website up and running, aswell as her pieces being sold in Poste Mistress, her dreamy mix of delicate corals, turquoises, lapis lazuli and 9ct gold are slowly but surely seeping their way through London’s stylish senoritas.

Kerry Huff’s label, The Crop, is really in it’s infancy but with a strong collection of 9ct & 18ct gold pieces sporting her signature knot design & a collection of treats being sold in West London’s jewllery boutique, Sweetpea, she is definitely one to watch.



Last but by no means least is Zelda Cave ~ If my arm was twisted & I simply had to ~ I would say her designs are my favourite. I am almost certainly biased due to the fact that all three lovely ladies, plus equally lovely others, chipped in for my birthday & treated me to one of her necklaces.



With Zelda’s illustrations etched onto bone & as a truly unique, one of a kind piece I have rarely taken this beauty off since I got her. I’d been wanting to write about Zelda’s jewellery for a while and it seemed only fitting to do it now as she needs our help.

As with all three girls, and my good self!, I understand how difficult it is to start up &, more importantly, sustain a small business in this economy especially doing something creative. Wanting to make your day job something that you truly love doing is hard work & can almost seem like a constant up hill struggle. A large helping hand of cash is nothing to be taken lightly. With an opportunity to win £10,000 towards her business and with mentoring from Stylist magazine and Triumph Lingerie she needs our help!

Zelda has been accepted through the first stage of this amazing competition, but now needs to collect some votes.

It takes 2 minutes & only needs an email address

As with anything made from pure love, tirelessly hand crafted & highly unique ~ when you see these beauties in the flesh & up close they are even better. As if her jewellery wasn’t gorgeous enough as it is Zelda is possibly one of my favourite people in the world. Beautiful, kind, funny, talented & selfless she’s a frikkin’ corker.

Seeing good people do well is something I am queuing up to vote for….Are you?
