    So what's a #Girlboss ?

    In case you haven't heard the term, a Girlboss is basically an idea that's come of its time.  Based on the book by Sophia Amoruso of hte same title.  Sophie's definition of a girlboss is 'someone who is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it. She takes control and accepts responsibility.

    She has a vision and she knows where she's going but she wants to have some fun along the way !  She takes life seriously, but not herself. She's going to change the world, or at least contribute to it in a positive way. She's bright, hardworking and in laymans terms she's 'going for it'

    Basically she's a badass !

    When i look around me i'm surrounded with strong women that fit this description, they're working, making plans, running businesses alongside family life, raising children (often alone) and making stuff happen. They inspire me every day because i see them on their tough days and on their not so sure of life days too.  So we created the Girlboss collection as a homage to these women because even the most badass of us needs a little nudge or reminder that they're doing ok from time to time..!

    Choose from some iconic slogans, naturally we have #Girlboss to start us off, but how about 'Classy, Sassy & Badassy' or the 'Super mega awesome' for good measure? We created pieces with slogans that either say it how it is, or we simply fell in love with because they inspired us...

    Oh and did we mention Unicorns?  Yes, there are unicorns in Girlboss along with coffee cups and wine glasses because whether your a protein shake kinda girl or your run entirely on caffeine there's a girlboss piece of jewellery just for you... and wine ?  Because its always wine o clock somewhere. 

    Our collection is made from Sterling Silver and finished where appropriate with Gold or rose gold plating.  This collection features our own designs so you won't see these pieces everywhere and comes in our signature branded elegant monochrome packaging. Girlboss is the perfect gift for the women in your life who are making things happen or as a present for yourself or a daily reminder that you've got this sh*t handled.

  2. Amity_and_grace_collection

    Happy New Year !  We're starting off the new year super excited to show you our Amity & Grace collection for Spring 2017.

    With vintage illustrations and classic black and white branding, this collection is divided into seven occasions... Choose from Love, Occasions or even the topical 'Girl Boss' for gorgeous gifting solutions made from Sterling Silver, with gold and rose gold plating, designed right here in deepest Rutland.

    I love a winter walk on the beach and almost always came back home with pockets full of shells. I was feeling rather nostalgic so I incorporated some beautiful conch shells into the collection.. This swiftly became my latest obsession, poring over science publications from the 18th and 19th century for ideas and  as so often happens i was inspired by the fabulous designs with so many stories to tell and dug deeper and deeper which led to the stunning natural history images and scientific illustrations. Plus of course, my perennial favourite - the knight on a white horse... yes i know he's not coming to save me, but a girl can dream... so do indulge me.

    We should of course mention that the jewellery is made from Sterling silver to our design, it will arrive on your counter carded and cellophane wrapped and ready to pop into the stand and onto your counter.  We've designed the cards with gift giving in mind and there's a space on the back to write a message for the recipient, whether its a simple 'Happy Birthday' or an 'I love you' or something altogether saucier... there's plenty of space for your inner prose to surface.  

    Where were we...?  Ah yes, the icing on the cupcake of this collection, the presentation.

    To complement the simplicity of our collection, our countertop point of sale display is rather cool if we do say so ourselves, its made of pale wood with simple black graphics, our home town of Stamford features in pride of place  #lovewhereyoulive and of course the super slim, sliding black and white understated boxes complement this collection beautifully.
