blog: whatiluv 17 – Duchess Jewellery

I don’t mean to sound materialistic, but sometimes all you need is a little surprise gift to lift your spirits 😉

This happened to me today when I received a STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS handmade necklace from Australian designer Duchess Jewellery.

I was having such a bad week – having split my lip a few days earlier in a really bad fall (insert sooky lala face!) But having something new to touch, hold, wear & get inspired from was definitely the thing that lifted my mood.

Duchess, the owner of the company, crafts each piece uniquely so they’re one of a kind! She puts so much love and effort into the jewellery. Who wouldn’t prefer that over buying mass produced, department store stuff?!

I really love supporting such creative local talent. Duchess is from Townsville in north Queensland, but she’s happy to ship anywhere in Australia. Check her designs out @ www.duchessjewellery.net and @duchess_jewellery on instagram.

Lots of love!! ❤ ❤ ❤

London-born makeup artist Laura Jenkinson uses her face as a 3D canvas… I can’t believe how artistic & talented some people are!! Love it!!

On a side note, I think I’ve figured out the direction of this blog – just things I love hahaha.

Enjoy xx
