I came across a lot of people who want to try vintage, but don’t know where to begin.
Well, my advice is always the same, look for accessories. Bags and shoes are pieces where I’m less afraid to invest in, as I know I’m gonna wear them a lot and for a long time.
But what about jewellery?
Jewellery is the perfect accessories to begin your vintage collection. Precious metals would never die and they are really versatile. From gigantic 80’s earrings, to the fantastic moon shape Victorian moon brooch, statement rings or daintier necklace there is something for everyone.
Today I’ll be sharing some of my favourite of the shop along with some of my personal collection.
I love to collect very special pieces, but there is nothing like receiving a jewel from a loved one. I attribute them a particular power, they become a totem I take with me everywhere. This amber brooch is a family piece. I often put brooches on plain hats, I have one on my black beret, a cute cat on my giant Texan hat, I think they make the whole difference.
As you can see in the shop, I have an obsession for “ethnical” jewellery. Particularly Berber, Middle east, Tibetan, Rajasthan and Chinese jewellery. I collect rings foremost. I never go out without my rings on or better say, I never take them off!
I had the chance to come across those incredible silver filigree Berber earrings, with a little coral in the middle.

My little snake collection, the first one I bought in Egypt 10 years ago, the second one is the most recent, is a gift from my man on our Holiday in Greece. The last one is from Tibet, I never been to Tibet 🙁
I’m a quarter Polish so I still have a lot of amber around me :). The first one is from my grandmother, the two other one have been gifted to me by my dad and her girlfriend. I wear the one in the middle every single day.
