I had a lot of fun last Saturday popping in to the Fashion Monitor Style Lounge at The Mayfair Hotel to visit the Wonsuponatime girls and take a peek at some of their current collections. I have always loved how quirky the jewellery is, and the fairytale concept of the store, but seeing the pieces in real life really makes you appreciate the intricate designs.  

Showcasing a range of their currently designers, I picked some of my favourite pieces to share with you guys so lets start from the top of the photographs: the first collection I viewed was by Jessica de Lotz. The collection is made up of interlocking friendship rings, wax seal bracelets and necklaces with the concept of old school romance and love letters. Jessica is such a stylish girl, it was great meeting her and chatting to her about some of the pieces - I loved the wax seal rings. And I found out the taxidermy squirrel is her creation too!

Moving on to the next collection which caught my eye because of the delicate and such detailed peacock earrings by Annabell Lucilla. They are stunning from the first look, but getting up close to the earrings you really get to see all the small details which contribute to the end feel of vintage glamour. I chatted to the lovely Annabell about the pieces and she told me she drew the peacocks herself and then transferred that into the end product, which is how they got all their tiny details. The other piece which caught my eye was the timeless oriental hoop ring which looks great worn on its own, or paired with other gold rings for those who are styling glamorous punk looks this year.

One of my favourite pieces was by wonderful Yasmin Everley from her collection of insect accessories "blurring the boundaries between eerie and charming": the spider beetle ring. Made with a chunky precious stone, this beauty will look amazing with any party dress, and will add glamour to a plain T-shirt, skinny jeans and ballet flats look. The whole collection is just stunning - the spider ring came a close second to the beetle cocktail ring!

Now for something truly weird and wonderful: when the Wonsuponatime girls first introduced me to this collection, they also told me the reactions of previous viewers has been very varied and I would love to know what you guys think on these pieces by Momo Cretura: the hanging mouse pendant and the gold chained bear pendant. I find these pieces beautiful because they are scary and almost uncomfortable, yet so beautiful and delicate! It's one of those pieces that you'll notice someone wearing and go "That's a really pretty necklace! Oh, hang on..." but get to appreciate the concept. I like them, what do you think?

It was really a great experience to come and see all the jewellery, thank you to the lovely Sarah and Emily for inviting me over! I have picked several pieces that I've got my eye on, and for anyone who likes timeless and different designs, check out the designers mentioned in this post, as well as the Wonsuponatime website!
