Style Crush: SixForGold
What's your jewellery style like? I love wearing the same simple things every day, but I'm a sucker for dainty costume jewellery. I'm basically a magpie. I see shiny things and I go, "Ooooh!"
Case in point: I recently had lunch with my friend and fellow American expat, YouTuber Robyn A, when my eyes locked onto her gorgeous Native Gem bracelet. I'd seen it before in one of her videos, but I didn't quite appreciate how pretty it was until I saw it in person. Of course, I had to ask about its origins and loved that it was from an online boutique called sixforgold, where many of the designer pieces stocked are from - you guessed it - the US.
Having lived in the UK for a decade, I feel like I know British jewellery designers like the back of my hand by now and I'm constantly looking out for indie designers and shops. But what I miss are the different styles and designers that are available in America, so when I'm not style-stalking my friends who live in the States for jewellery tips, I'm searching for independent online boutiques like sixforgold where I can satisfy my shopaholic tendencies (I also spend all day every day on Instagram and Pinterest, going ga-ga over things like midi rings and layered gold jewellery, which doesn't help my habit!).
Because of my Instagram/Pinterest/Etsy addiction, I suddenly became fixated on finding the perfect evil eye necklace (don't ask). And when I get fixated on something I don't stop until I find 'The One' (the other night, I had a bout of insomnia between 2 - 4 a.m. and ended up on a wild online goosechase for a new electric toothbrush ... see?).
Anyway, I found the perfect evil eye necklace by A.V. Max at sixforgold: not too big, not too small, subtly sparkly, with an adjustable chain so that the eye can sit just in that cleft between my collarbones, or, lower, if I so wished.
I'm feeling like it's deflecting all that negative energy when I wear it.
