With the weather suddenly turning a lot more autumnal, I thought I ought to make the most of being able to throw on something so simple before stepping out of the door. I’m sure you all know by now that I live for layering up all black in the cooler months, but there’s no denying there’s something so perfect about just throwing on one single, simple piece. I love pieces like this H&M shirt because they make this kind of dressing effortless, and also look just as good layered up too. It’s a basic item, yet the simple asymmetric cut makes it anything but.

I spoke about Ailsigr in my last post, when I showed off some of her beautiful silver pieces. She also works in bronze, and this talisman necklace is my favourite piece after the beautifully statement mountain rings. Inscribed with mysterious symbols, it has an aura of history and magic, and is another perfect example of a simple piece made extra special.

It’s always exciting to come across a new independent designer whose work you love, and I just couldn’t wait to share these wonderful pieces by Ailsigr with you all.

Through her pieces Ailsa explores our relationship with mythology and nature, seeking to understand where this all fits into our technology driven, twenty first century lives. The use of traditional, hands on techniques paired with a modern eye for design gives her pieces a raw and ancient feel, almost as if these are lost totems from a long forgotten time. Combining symbols, texture and organic shapes, her pieces act as mysterious talismans for modern times.

My personal favourite piece has to be the large mountain range ring with its statement textured peaks. It’s a striking piece, one that demands attention and made from solid silver, it feels pleasingly weighty on your hand too.
