I love love love Julia Burness

After tweeting about the fact that I didn't don't do rings,  I was inundated with tweets about fabulous rings that I would be sure to love.

And love them I did, especially those from Julia Burness, who makes some of the most stunning jewellery I have seen in a long time.

I am now the proud owner of 3 of my very favourite pieces from her collections and I thought I should spread the love and include links, my thoughts and some pic's of my new jewellery.

Twig Bracelet
Silver £85.00
Brass £65.00



I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it because of how unusual it is. I then proceeded to get upset when unwrapping it as I noticed how tiny it was. However, after doing a bit of reading on the net, I found out the brass is pliable enough to stretch/tighten as necessary so from me thinking it would only fit my toddler I can quite confidently say it should fit anyone 
(beware - the twiggy bits can be a bit scratchy when stretching it)

This would look fab with a formal summer dress, to add just that little twist.







Pig Ring
£60.00

This ring is soooooooooo me (need I say any more).
 It makes people do a double take, though I don't know what because it is very obviously a pig (and a very well crafted one at that).




Love Ring
Silver £49.00
Brass £39.00





Out of the 3 pieces I have - my brass 'love' ring is the piece I have had the most compliments on (even my nanny said it was 'trendy' (she thinks I'm about 12 still) and tried it on).

I wore it to work every day last week and its soooooo comfortable, and contrary to what everyone thinks, it did not get in the way once. 

As someone who wouldn't even wear her wedding ring because I have never thought rings were me, I am loving that Julia's rings have made me see that rings can be edgy and individual
 (and still comfy and practical)
 
She has most definitely opened my eyes to a whole new expensive jewellery avenue I need to explore further !!
 
And I think my nexr stop will be a Love ring in silver and one of her Rock Goddess Rings.

Rock Goddess Ring
Silver £90.00
Vermeil £120.00

Pictures and prices from My Flash Trash who stock Julia's range.
The rings come in standard sizes, but can be made to order so before you pop them into your shopping cart I would just double check the sizing and if its not suitable fire off an email to get one custom made. (the Pig ring comes in K1/2 and the Love ring M1/2)

  1. Wow! What goreous pieces! They remind me of Alex Monroe's designs, yet are still completely original in their own right. I ADORE the pig ring, and the twig bracelet is so so pretty. Lucky ol' you!
