Styled by Kimberley: Helen's Jewellery
As we've mentioned, we've been busy running around on bridesmaids' duties. It's what you do for your best friend. Especially when they are trying to orgnanse a wedding from the other side of the world. It has however meant that every time we've been together recently we've been elbow deep in stationery or favours. Since we've already been through it all for my wedding back in 2013 we are well practised. If you need professional bow tiers or card cutters we're your girls!
Unfortunately it means we've been slacking on blog photos. I hadn't even seen Helen's creepy new jewels from her latest jewellery class until Wedding Eve. In between counting out Orders of Services we took a break so that I could do a bit of hand modelling, and here are some of the pics.

Rings | Made by Helen
I wasn't expecting to be photographed when I put this outfit on (you can probably tell by the messy thrown up hair) I was there to arrange menus but it's worked out okay. The shirt is bright but it creases like crazy so not exactly photo friendly. The jacket is my new favourite (yes I know I just got a biker style jacket but I never do things by halves) its' softly tailored with a funnel neck and sharp shoulders. A perfect cover up for the weird and windy start to August we just had.
Since I wasn't wearing any accessories the focal point was really on Helen's creepy dripping new rings. I have watched the progression of Helen's jewellery making skills over the last decade- she even stayed with me for a week to take part in an ECA class some years ago. You can see the baby-faced outcome of that in this outfit post. During her recent summer school at DJCAD she reproduced some of these in wax, and also created these creepy rings. They remind me of the urchins that Ursula keeps in The Little Mermaid. I love them!
