20% off stylish bridesmaids gifts from Silver Fig Jewellery
Afternoon readers! I’ve a lovely little offer to share this afternoon from the lovely Heather & Neil at Silver Fig Jewellery. Originally from London, and having worked for top jewellers including Tiffany and De Beers, Heather & Neil now run Silver Fig from the comfort of their Johannesburg studio, selling their beautiful pieces in South Africa, the UK and worldwide. For a limited time, b.loved readers can claim 20% off their order (see below for details).
I just love the cute nature-inspired charms that adorn each piece, they’d make a different kind of thank you gift for your bridesmaids, perhaps with a nod to your own personal wedding style? The starfish would be a lovely reminder of a beach wedding, perhaps the hummingbird for a tropical destination celebration, the deer for a woodland themed day, or daisies for a garden party inspired wedding?
Read on for a little more insight into Heather’s style…
My style is… Definitely a lot more relaxed that it used to be. In London I used to dash around in 4 inch heels and I was always very glam for work, but since moving to South Africa and becoming a mum my style is more flip flops and summer dresses but always with a lot of jewellery!
I’m inspired by… A lot of the designers I see here in Johannesburg. There are some fantastic young labels with amazing talent. We’ve also been lucky enough to travel a bit through Africa and these experiences have definitely inspired pieces in our collection.
My favourite piece is… It changes all the time but at the moment I love our steenbok (deer) pendant… it’s so cute. Kate Moss is a fan of our Impala head pendant too!
Trends I love right now… I am really enjoying the pastels trend which is so feminine and looks great with our jewellery!
Designers I admire… I loved the Somerset by Alice Temperley collection which was designed for John Lewis. I could have bought every piece! Loin Cloth and Ashes who are based in Joburg are fantastic for everyday and evening wear and for a pay day treat an item from Vanessa Bruno is a gorgeous splurge!
I love my job because… My husband and I work for ourselves which gives us a lot of flexibility especially now that we have a little boy. We also love the creative freedom of having our own ideas and designs and not having to answer to anyone other than ourselves. Something I also really love is seeing someone in the street wear one of our pieces…
Weddings make me… Very excited and often emotional. I love the whole concept of everyone coming together on one day to celebrate a couple being in love. I almost wish I could do mine over again!
My advice for couples planning their wedding is… Keep an eye on your budget, don’t worry about the small things as you will forget about them on the day, buy the most fabulous dress you can afford, don’t get too drunk, plan a relaxing honeymoon as you will need and it and don’t forget to enjoy every minute of it!
