Sometimes you want to shout from the top of your lungs and use every ounce of breath to speak your mind and get some stuff off your chest. Instead, you keep your lips sealed but you kick yourself later.
“Damn it! Why am I such a lame ass?” This is what you say to yourself, or something along those lines using as many expletives as you possibly can. I’m sure we’ve all done it before and then moaned for an eternity afterwards. But you can only live and learn — and hope to be a bolder version of yourself the next time around.
If anything, it’s a good time to be bold and make a statement…with your accessories. Earrings are a good place to start. And bigger is better! I’ve always loved earrings, but not just any earrings will do.
I discovered Camille Walton on instagram. She’s a Wellington jeweller who is also stocked at Quoil on Willis Street. And just like art, sometimes jewellery just clicks with you and that’s exactly how I feel about Camille’s work. There’s something slightly undone and organic…and that’s what I find so magical!
