Do you dare to die? The sense of death is most in apprehension, and the poor beetle we tread upon feels a pang as great as when a giant dies. – William Shakespeare
I’m not one for quotes but thought that had some relevance to this post featuring the very talented jewellery designer, Rachel Boston. I discovered Rachel on In Detail, a brilliant website dedicated to Style in Jewellery which I highly recommend if you want to make some new discoveries.
I adore this lookbook and love how versatile the jewellery is for both men and women. Simple and beautiful designs, I’m particularly fond of the Tiny Stag Ring in silver, I find I can’t wear large rings because I have short fingers so this would be perfect. I will add it to my forever growing wishlist. Enjoy the images, they are linked back to her website so you can enjoy her designs. Prices vary depending on choice of Gold or Silver.

Gestuz is inspired by backstage rock n’ roll life but with a hint of elegance and sweetness. This complemented by strong and cutting edge print stories and through a small selection of handcrafted, eye-catching pieces you get a chance to stand out from the crowd.
I have followed Gestuz for a few years now, and their AW ’12 Lookbook is a lovely combination of feminine yet edgy pieces. I have picked my favourites, if only I could add them all to my endless wishlist of things I would like to purchase. Sadly most of these are out of my budget so I will have to make do with oogling them online. I do need a pair of leather pants though… maybe I could just save up…
