Zara Taylor London – My picks.

October 16th, 2011


I was recently invited to choose some pieces from the fabulous jewellery collection of Zara Taylor London. For those not familiar with the brand, Zara Taylor jewellery is full of beautiful, vintage inspired pieces that incorporate vintage beads and stones into new designs. Many are made using original tools to help replicate antique pieces from a bygone age. I love the designs, which just scream originality, and I’m in good company. Celebrity fans include Taylor Swift, Jessie J, and the girls from Made In Chelsea. When Kerry Katona entered the Big Brother House, she was wearing a Zara Taylor design.

Here are the pieces I chose from the latest collection.

Corpse Bride

I totally adore this pendant. From a distance, this is a beautiful, traditional cameo, but when you see it close-up, you realise it is anything  but. This pendant will be absolutely perfect for Halloween, draping down the front of your little black  dress. It’s quirky, cute, and yet looks surprisingly elegant. You can frankly wear it with anything. It looks great with jeans and a plain white t-shirt, but I have also worn it with a cream silk cami and pencil skirt and it also looked great. Definitely a talking point.

CORPSE BRIDE Long Chain Pendant £21.99

Fairy Pendant

As someone who has longed love cameos, this beautiful fairy pendant really appealed. Cameos were a staple of Victorian jewellery, and the fairy pendant seems to stay true to that eras love of mysticism and magic. You need to see this in the flesh to appreciate just how delicate and pretty the design is.I wore this when I attended the Jasper Garvida show during London Fashion Week and just got so many comments about it, most of which can summed up in one statement ‘So Pretty!’.

Big Old Bumblebee

When  we talk about statement jewellery, this is what we mean! A gorgeous, big, old piece with a beautiful  bumblebee at its centre, this piece is made of  brass and has then been  plated with silver for a real vintage feel. The silver chain that it hangs from is also antique silver. This is the piece of jewellery in your collection that will be known as your showstopper, and it is guaranteed to dress up even the most simple of outfits. And it has the sort of timeless feel that means you will be wearing it for years. Wear it, Love it, Cherish it!
