Cat People Magazine

i was on an aimless wander around instagram the other day when i came across cat people magazine's account. my happiness was immediate. cats! colours! pretty! cat people is a brand new bilingual (japanese/english) magazine which features interviews with and work by cat-obsessed artists, designers, photographers and writers. i'm in. if their instagram is this good, the magazine is bound to be pretty sweet.

Where have I been?

where have i been? i've gone and neglected my blog again. this poor little blog. i've been a busy bee, i'm working for an awesome start-up company called patchwork present. it's basically a group gifting site, like kickstarter meets pinterest. you think of the one thing you really want, for yourself or someone else, and you share it with friends and family who can fund it, piece by piece, hence 'patchwork present'. anyway check it out. 

i've also been busy with paper and chain, my baby. we were pretty bloody excited recently when nicole scherzinger wore our jewellery for the filming of the x factor bootcamp, which will be on tv soon. a pussycat doll, wearing our jewellery, can you imagine. 

anyway, i miss my blog. i'll try and pop in more often.

David Callow

i just wanted to share with you some of david callow's beautiful work. david creates soft, interesting, gorgeous work and i am a big fan. david says of his work "I like to first think of what would be exciting to see then to find ways of making that vision possible." yes. awesome.

top tip: follow david on instagram for work in progress photos, which i love to see.

oh man, it's been two long months since i last published a blog post. i guess having a demanding full time job and also running a jewellery company and also moving to london and having a life is kind of time consuming huh. i miss sharing things. this here is like an instagram recap of the first 5 months of my year. i got engaged, i got a new job, i moved to london, and now i live here in a lovely flat with paul and gus and ruby and we're having a good, busy, tiring time. 

1. the day after we got engaged. 2. commuting to work, train views. 3. one of the many air bnb flats i stayed in 4. chinatown 5 + 6 gus in our new flat 7. the natural history museum 8. planes overhead all the time 9. best bagels in london 10. liberty on my birthday 11. tatty devine holi party 12. beautiful sky over peckham rye 13. local flirty cat, george 14. leafy leafy london.

New: Paper & Chain for Boys!

we've wanted to create a paper & chain range especially for men for a long time, and we kicked it off this week with the king vega. it's the same classic vega shape but a lot chunkier, heavier, and maybe even slightly more awesome. it's a really satisfyingly heavy piece of silver. although we've created this ring for men, we've already had enquiries about making them for girls, and i really want one for myself, so it may not be too long before an extra chunky girls' vega is available.

to celebrate the launch of the king of vegas (no, not elvis) we are giving away one of these rings over on the paper & chain facebook page, just comment on this post to be in with a chance of winning one which you can then give to a lucky boy, unless you are a boy, in which case you can keep it. the competition ends on friday, good luck!

by the way i'm sorry about the lack of posts around these parts lately, i've been a very busy bee with work, moving to london, bla bla bla. bear with me!
