Christmas Festivities: Jewellery Alert

My recent trip to the Victoria and Albert Museum got me such great pictures and inspirations for my next design process that I went into a little CO (Creative Overload)!

All the pictures are pretty straight forward.

Monday Muse: Julia Sarr-Jamois

You could spot Julia Sarr-Jamois in a crowd from a distance. The perfect Afro gives it away!That is a trademark, ofcourse the Denim jackets, the sneakers, alternating between the 5inch Stilettos and the prints and colours thrown together to make the perfect look, helps in spotting the 23 year old Model-turn-Stylist-turn-Editor for Wonderland Magazine at practically every Fashion event.

Half Sengalese-half French,Julia started her career pretty soon,dropping out of college and pursuing an internship at I.D.Magazine, and soon securing a the Editor Title at Wonderland (which I think she has been at since 2010).

She can work a casual sportswear with wide legged trouser,looking effortless chic with that hair and statement accessories!(Almost always with huge sunglasses!)

Some of her looks:

Comfort Station, Brick Lane,London

On one my recent photo walks around East London I came across this real quirky store called Comfort Station, and comfort it indeed is!

This quirky little store has all things small and nice,and is a jewellery heaven! All I wanted from the store was Everything!

Sadly,I did not have much time on my hands as I was with a real busy fast walking photo group so did not get a chance to browse through everything but I got in touch with the designer behind the store Amy Anderson, who makes each of these beautiful pieces in the Brick Lane Studio using sterling silver, gold, Swarovski and antique crystals,semi-precious stones and sustainably harvested woods.

It is a little visual treat in this shop and you can see the story behind each piece (bearing in mind I had 5 minutes I gathered this information..imagine the length of this post if I was there for 20).
If you ever get a chance, please take a wander down this street and tell me what you think?
