I rave a lot about jewellery, it is because you don’t have to be skinny to pull off a necklace or a bracelet, and I am an avid fan of Anna Evan’s label Maggie Angus. If you have been under a rock and haven’t seen my previous blogs let me quickly bring you up to speed, Maggie Angus is a playful and quirky British jewellery label that turns Anna’s doodles into gorgeous perspex pieces, and I just love it!!
I loved the spring/summer 2011 Viva Del Mar collection, with its Studio 54′s disco cool vibe, and I initially fell in love with the label with its AW10 collection filled with vintage dresses, shoes, and perfume bottles, but I have to say this is the best collection from Anna Evans I have fallen in love with it all.
For autumn/winter 2011, all the pieces are inspired by the wonderful world of nocturnal woodland critters, full of bold silhouettes of bears, foxes, deer, owls and my favourite the squirrel.
I kind of feel like this piece was made for me, not only is it a squirrel I am kind of obsessed, I loved the squirrel jumper at Matalan, but it is also in navy my colour of the moment. I just adore how this navy squirrel perspex piece with its star cut-out detailing works against the silver chain – simply perfection, and I have most certainly added this to my wish list. Did I mention the best bit? This Squirrel Necklace is only £24.99. Yep, one of the best bits about Maggie Angus is the price nothing in the collection is more than £40!!!
I also love all the black glittered pieces, which really does reflect the mysterious nature of the night sky, how amazing is the Ursula Great Bear Necklace – so gorgeous and it comes in two sizes: small, £24.99 and large, £29.99.
I love how striking this Wild Fox Head Necklace, £24.99.
Maggie Angus isn’t all about necklaces there are also statement rings, bracelets and brooches.The Wild Fox Ring, £12, and my fav the Owl’s Head Ring, £12, above are great additions to any outfit, and there is also a bear and squirrel ring in the collection.
How cool is this Blue Owl Brooch, £26.99, it also comes in a clear perspex but I love the impact the blue one makes. I love how brooches can jazz up any outfit, add to a blazer for an instant refresh or tack to your handbag for a cute accessory.
It wouldn’t be a delve into night without a few animal tracks, how amazing is this Animal Print Bracelet, £22.99, which comes with matching earrings and a necklace. Normally I wouldn’t suggest wearing together but I actually think it would look cool, also this is a great alternative to wearing animal print clothing, as I don’t know about you it just doesn’t suit me, that is why jewellery is perfect.
From the animal life to their tracks in the dark the collection also features this starry Cosmic Bib Necklace, £34.99, and updated Aztec pieces, especially loving this Aztec Wild Bracelet, £23.99.
The AW11 Night Life collection goes live on Maggieangus.com from July 1, which pieces do you have your eye on?
