Inspired by this beautiful shell-by-the pool picture by @kaileytedesco that features our amethyst TOVE necklace (thank you Kailey), we thought we'd spotlight some of our sea themed pieces, there's actually quite a few - What can we say, the roll of the open waves, the interesting other worldly beasts, the romance and power of the vast oceans and all that lies beneath, we're into it! Perfect for those beachy days and summer wardrobes.
Take to the seas and discover treasures untold with this under the sea inspired necklace. A golden brass mermaid swims alongside a beautiful vintage sea-blue glass opal. Shimmering ocean tones of blues, greens, silvers and flecks of gold, it's the finishing touch to your Siren song.
This guy obviously knows where the party's at; he's having a whale of a time!
A sweet brass whale is busy blowing tiny bubbles; these vintage lucite beads look just like bubbles with their iridescent sheen. Doesn't it just make you want to break out into song? "Under the sea, unnnnnnder the sea..."
Meet Suzy Green of @sayomiku - she is a candy colour haired nap addict from the Midlands and spends a lot of time in pyjamas when she is not looking like a total babe on her insta. She's also a fan of EE, which we found out from the image image she tagged us in with our YOU CANNOT BE CIRRUS necklace, and we instantly wanted to know more - and this is what we found out!
Hi Suzy! Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am an aspiring author! I'm currently working towards that at university right now but other passions include interior design, fashion and naps!
What makes you like EE? :) (we promise we didn't make her say this answer guys!)
EE is like no other brand I have come across. I love unique and eye catching pieces. I have tonnes of jewellery, but they're all quite similar - EE just blows every piece I have ever owned out of the water. The quality is also amazing. Another nice touch is the packaging which is super adorable and I like to keep my pieces inside of the cute boxes they come in which prevents them from getting lost or damaged. In addition, the length of the necklaces are perfect. Sometimes chokers/short necklaces fit but they literally choke you but all my pieces from EE have been amazing lengthwise and have been super comfortable to wear.
And what is your fave piece so far and what have you got your eye on?
It is super hard to choose my fave piece, but I think I do favour the YOU CANNOT BE CIRRUS cloud necklace. The arches within the body of the cloud add that real nice extra finishing touch and go really well with the blue raindrops. As for what I have my eye on, I must admit it is the GOING THROUGH A PHASE Glow-In-The-Dark Moon Necklace as I love lunar phases and the TO SCALE Fishbowl Necklace because it is just too damn cute!
Coffee or tea?
Coffee for sure. I'm probably slightly (very) addicted to caffeine and I can get a little grumpy if I don't get my fix in the mornings - also the taste - is amazing. However, I love jasmine tea.
Party or night in?
As an introvert, a night in. I've been to parties and they are great and all but I come back so tired and I just don't enjoy myself for what it is worth! But that's just me.
What's a typical day in the life of Suzy Green/Sayomiku?
I'm going to give you an honest breakdown here. I wake up around 1pm, with my boyfriend snoring in my face. We then eat a (un)healthy breakfast of toast and like 4 mugs of coffee. Then it's either planning and writing blogposts or playing sims.
Where does the insta name come from?
I wanted something a little more interesting than just my name because let's be honest... suzy_green1997 doesn't sound that great haha. It just popped into my head one day!
How would you describe your look/sense of style?
I like unique pieces but on a day to day basis I just wear pyjamas (oops). But I'd like to think it's slightly edgy but broken up with frills and Peter Pan collars.
It's 47 years today since these babes (Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin) of the Apollo 11 mission landed on the Moon and Armstrong took a walk out on the Lunar surface! We kinda take that for granted now but it is one of the most amazing things human kind has achieved, a mind boggling feat of science and determination and powered by our existential thirst to explore that great unknown. It's pretty major.
And today we celebrate with some crazy Moon Day launches, exclusive pieces and discounts - with all our Moon pieces receiving 20% with the MOONDAY code at the checkout. You can see them all here.
Behold - the special edition PERFECT ALIGNMENT with a teeny tiny Neil Armstrong, Moon Cabachon and even a much sought after Pluto!
Wedding season is in full swing, who's got wedding guest fatigue?? #thestruggleisreal Well to pep you up we've got some extra special bride-inspiration shots to share today. Check out these bad boys of AM Faulker Bridal's new collection, PLANT LIFE, featuring some of our finest pieces from the GEMSTONE collection, perfect for a bride with boho leanings!
AM Faulkner Bridal, is the label from cool London based milliner Ann-Marie Faulkner, has rapidly become one of the most exciting presences in the bridal industry and we were so happy to supply some accessories for the look book by Photographer James Champion.
Botanical elements rule the range - Above is the POLLEN wrap veil which has beautiful beaded 'stamens' with our Clear Quartz Crystal BAROCK ON necklace. Just £12.50 on SALE!
The BLOSSOM band has iridescent sequin blooms flashing their fresh, pastel tones, mirrored by our sadly sold out Moonstone piece - but more of these type of goodies can be found in our GEMSTONE collection.
There are a couple of beautifully made short veils such as WALLFLOWER seen here with our PEAK Geometric necklace.
Today we want to talk about earrings. Not always seen as the main player in the world of jewellery, often losing out to the much more in-your face-placed and easily instagrammable necklace or ring. But with wedding and holiday season in full swing, earrings can often take your look up a gear, either subtly or statement, that extra bling can put out those dressed up summer vibes you may be searching for with out needing to update your entire wardrobe. And when it comes to EE, without losing your geek chic edge either of course.
So... behold... from the simple stud to the dangly drama, a little run down of some of our EE Earring Highlights!
The lovely Amber Rose McIntyre wrote a whole blog post all about her favourite EE pieces, why thank you very much! Check it all here. You look very fetching in your BUMBLING ALONG amber (oohh!) necklace, lady. Other favies included INFINI and BAROCK ON.
NASA's space probe Juno entered into Jupiter's orbit on this day this week, no biggie.
Shhh.... don't tell anyone but we received this totally undercover sneak peak of our pieces in MOST CURIOUS Wedding Fair's latest campaign shoot. Can you spot our PELE rock crystal and tassle necklace??
Why not round off the week with some of your lovely faces in the #eejewellery tag up highlights?!
@jessyasmus decided to go in sparkly with a 70s dress and our LUPUS constellation necklace to get out of a funky mood. #beenthere
Half Italian and half Scottish babe @helen_zaz was letting CATCHING A SHOW fittingly steal the show from her amazing hair.
Well what dya know? Today, the US space agency successfully put a new probe in orbit around Jupiter.
That probe is called the Juno satellite, which left Earth five years ago and has achieved the rather tricky task of entering Jupiter's atmosphere by firing a rocket engine to slow its approach to the planet and get caught by its gravity. Juno has sent back a sequence of tones that let us Earth dwellers (or more specifically Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California) know that the manoeuvre has gone as planned.
"All stations on Juno co-ord, we have the tone for burn cut-off on Delta B," Juno Mission Control had announced. "Roger Juno, welcome to Jupiter."
Mind = blown. In a good way!
Scientists plan to use the spacecraft to sense the planet's deep interior. They think the structure and the chemistry of its insides hold clues to how this giant world formed some four-and-a-half-billion years ago. Here's an artists depiction of it all going on...
And of course here is our PERFECT ALIGNMENT which has Jupiter, the biggest planet, as it's central player- formed of vintage cabochons dating from the 1940s through to the 1980s, originally made in Italy, Austria and Germany. Each selected for their similarities to the planets, they're all here: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Jupiter has orange, yellow and red swirls of patterns, mimicking the gaseous structure and it beautiful marbled look.
The hunt for sketchy collaborators, serious sale vibes, maxing out on EE-wearing, a chance to get your hands on real Mars Dust in a wearable form and we get an industry pat on the back for how we share images of YOU BABES in our pieces!
Did you see our blog post?? We are looking to work with talented people in the illustrator world on some super secret projects.

Exciting, ay?

@jessyasmus was lovely in lemon and our LUPUS necklace and our INTO THE WILD earrings (worn as little brooches!) in her home town close to the Alps in Munich.
Liverpudlian book blogger @thereaderscornerx is excited to be reading her review copy of Gemina in her PERFECT ALIGNMENT - lucky lady!
Can you spot our ALCHEMY necklace on @madamemoi on her travels in Turin, Italy?
Annika over in Australia of @littlepineneedle told us she wore her four new necklaces at once when she received them yesterday and these are her two EE rings INFINI and ORION. She doesn't do things by halves this one, and we like it!
