Highlights of the 2012 – part 2

This is the continuation of yesterday’s post, reflecting on the highlights of the 2012….

July was full of fabulous shoots with amazing stylists and photographers.

Holly Cox styled a shoot with our necklaces worn as head pieces. This is one of my favourite shots, which later was featured in C Heads magazine.

I worked quite a few times with an amazing and multi-talented stylist Lucy and definitely formed a great friendship. Lucy styled a couple of shoots with our pieces, with an Egyptian themed shoot being my favourite. Here’s the beautiful image as shot by the lovely photographer Peter Warwick.

I also met a fabulous stylist Krishan Parmar. He styled a Day of the Dead inspired shoot. I have some amazing images, but not entirely sure if I can use them just yet (since these were for the submissions to the magazines, hence aren’t to be featured elsewhere), but here’s one of the behind the scenes shots.

The same month thanks to our new online stockist Caratime, our Carnival necklace was featured in Elle France!
