Isn’t true that when you stop, look and observe, you find so much more than you thought you would? For as they say, beauty can be found in the most unlikely of places and big things come in small packages.

Not only that, but these often a time when the smallest of details bring a whole piece together and create much more than what you expected. A stroke of a brush, the perfect phrase, maybe even that ideal emoji that seems to just sum up all those emotions that can’t seem to be expressed in 50 words or less.

Perhaps that’s what’s just so magical about the jewellery that Emily for Emclectic collection creates. Delicate, refined, precise. Nothing left to chance. Everything colour, piece and shape chosen with clarity and joy. And the effect that they have? As we described. Precision, completion, perfection.

We had a pleasure collaboration with the lovely Emily and Livia to bring this shoot to life. All hand made and carefully created by Emily, her latest ranges have hues of pastel pink and sage green and are just waiting to add that little something to your autumn wardrobe.

All too often we can feel that we’re on this journey called “life” alone. We look to our plans and our life and nothing seems to be relatable to anyone! However, often when you do have the opportunity to sit down and really discover other people’s journeys, you soon find other people who are on very similar journeys to you!

It’s our pleasure to kick off big picture stuff’s photography with a bang. Or should we say with some prickly new pics. Inspired by the incredible artist Frida Kahlo, we collaborated with our favourite Livia from L is for Olive to create this photo series. Frida Kahlo was a Spanish artist who was loosely identified with the Surrealist art movement, but was known for her arresting self portraits that did not shy from telling her personal truth. In photos and in her paintings, she was never seen without flowers in hair.

This has to be one of our favourite photo series that we’ve ever done for our blog and it wouldn’t be possible with that amazing lady that you see in the photo! The idea all stemmed from seeing Liv‘s tassel earrings half a year ago. From that moment, we knew we had to pull something together honouring Frida. Then we discovered, Cactus Country. Is this a photographer’s dream, yes. Is it incredibly amazing, yes. Does it make you feel that you’re in some distant land, yes again.

If we can take something away from photo shoot, we would say, we learnt that even if you have the tinest concept or the inkling of an idea that excites you, go for it. You never know where that idea will take you and you don’t know what adventures that idea is going to take you on.

Sending our love to our darling Livia who has moved up to Sydney to pursue even more adventures and follow her heart. We miss you lovely one, but we know that you have some amazing things in store for you.

And if you’re reading this, that goes for you too! We’re excited to pick up the blog post for this year, it may be a little backwards at times, but we’re going to get back into the swing of things! Why? Cause we love it!
