Leather, metals and stones are a few of my favourite things. The jewels I am wearing here are made from just these beautiful materials as well as a whole lotta love and soul. Their creators are Insta-artists Wild Sun Dust (Leather and Turquoise cuff), The Bohemian Fox (Leather fringe necklace) and The Fox and Stone (Electroformed copper stacking rings), and wow do these ladies have absolutely boundless creative talent!
So we headed to the local park to shoot so as to take advantage of the fresh blanket of snow which had been laid over everyting the night before. The winter here has such a specific feel, and I dont just mean cold. I mean the almost unnerving absence of people in the streets and parks, the smell in the air of delicious home-cooked traditional Bulgarian food, the pillars of smoke rising above the houses from the indoor woodfires and the hunched stiffness of the cold passers-by who dare to venture outside. Its all of these small and often unexpected details that for me, as a foreigner, fall together into a beautifully real image of what a European winter is.
