I am not and will never be one of those serial ‘Likers’ on Instagram, I use and refer back to the ‘Posts You’ve Liked’ regularly to see whats currently inspiring me, it’s like my mini Pinterest of sorts. It’s also a subtle reminder to save up my pennies to buy all these amazing things by all the outstanding artists, jewellers, tattoo artists, designers I follow and then there are just personal memories scattered in there too. This is about 6 months worth of my favourite things, it’s clear to see what influences me from these beautiful images.
Are your ‘Likes’ as carefully thought out as mine? Or is this some sort of weird personal trait? Probably.
I discovered this via NotCot and thought it was a beautiful concept by London based jewellery designer Tithi Kutchamuch. Part of her Secret Friend collection, and inspired by the death of her dog, Tithi has designed a range of jewellery with animal-shaped bases to keep them on, how very practical! I have included my favourite images of her work, taken by photographer Petr Krejci. Simple and beautiful I really like everything about these pieces. I have always found it annoying to store my jewellery in an appealing way, and this works perfectly. How do you feel about these striking images?
I’ve never really been into stones but recently I’ve found myself really interested in them, by best friend has always collected and worn stone jewellery so maybe she’s finally rubbing off on me. I’m fascinated by the array of beautiful colours you can find in natural stones, most of which I had no idea existed.
Following my recent discovered love for natural stones, I was very excited to see one of my favourite jewellers, BloodMilk release a collection featuring moonstone. Each piece has a beautiful little story surrounding it which makes for a fascinating read. Check out her Etsy shop full of amazing creations.
The second I can spare some money I will be treating myself to the Belonging To The Underworld ring, I think I will request to have it in a highly polished finish, so it sits better with the rest of my jewellery collection.

Which of these beauties would you choose?
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 love looking at what I’ve “liked” on Instagram, it’s like my own mini collection of inspirational images that I’ve been very particular about choosing as a “Photo You’ve Liked”. Mine’s a beautiful mixture of friends, family, fashion, artists and anything cute. What does yours say about you?
