A box for a gentleman by Hannah Livingston

The Box Neckpieces
The Black Box Cufflinks

The Edward Pin
Today's man should be a gentleman at all times.  To spread the word of all things gentlemanly wouldn't it be brilliant if he could carry around little cards with his worldly wisdom written on them to pass on to other chaps?  Well with a Gentlemen Box from Hannah Livingston (facebook)this can now happen.

The range is based on practical and ornate wearable furniture for the body, which looks as though they could've existed for decades.  Get them while you can, so we can bring back a touch of chivalry to the modern man.

Fabulously creepy jewellery from Moon Raven

3D Bronze Ribcage Necklace
Personal Wrecking Ball Necklace

Sterling Silver Raven Claw Ring  - Bird Crow Corvid - Moon Raven Designs
The Master Inspectors Magnifier
We do love a bit of jewellery from the dark side every now and again. Letting our inner Vader come out we can across Moon Raven Designs (facebook page).  For over 30 years these lovely but a tad creepy pieces have been coming out of Vancouver and making their way around the globe. We particularly love the magnifying glass necklace.  Always handy when doing some clandestine midnight work.

Get some Prairie Oats

Everyone likes to have their oats.  Especially when stuck on the prairie, with nothing to do but some gentle but firm oat making.  Whilst we were thinking of such escapades, we came across Prairie Oats.  These are beautifully crafted recycled vintage jewellery pieces available from Etsy.

So go forth my naughty followers, and get some oat making action whilst wearing these rather fabulous pieces.

So it has been a restful weekend.  We have been dreaming a lot since our last blog, and wouldn't you know it we had a reoccurring dream.  Again, we found ourselves dreaming of Norway, but with a more magical twist.

This time our Dreams of Norway were filled with designer duo Nina Einarsen and Iselin Stromsvag.  They create unique Norwegian nature inspired jewellery from silver, stone, cystals, feathers, wood, horn and leather.  So off to bed again soon, to see where our mind takes us next.....

Lie back and dream of Norway

We always thought that a pearl necklace would make our black little number the talk of the town, and now we can make it happen.  Thanks Norway!

No Regrets by Stephen Webster

'No Regrets they only hurt' a once famous singer sang...  But Stephen Webster would have something to say about that.  No Regrets is part of his new men’s silver collection Alchemy in the UK

Taking inspiration from the British Punk Rock era, Alchemy in the UK reflects on iconic record covers, fanzines and fliers from the 1970’s and 1980’s punk music scene.

“By depicting the union jack flag using rose gold, black rhodium and silver studs we put a twist on a British punk rock reference.  Never straying far from the music, we turned to the icons of the punk era to create the latest in our line of men’s collections.  It’s been exciting for us to watch the popularity of men’s jewellery grow and we’re always proud of how well received our men’s lines have been over the past 10 years,” comments Creative Director, Stephen Webster.

Well we tip our bowler hat to you Stephen.  Another job well done sir.
