I’m a massive accessories fiend. I think I actually have more pieces of jewelery than shoes and bags (and that’s saying something) as it can jazz up an otherwise uneventful outfit or add a little va-va-voom into an already funky one. (Yes I still use the word ‘funky’.) I’ve been spying on independent jewellery designer Maggie Angus for some time as her designs are super cool, without being too ‘faddy’ – there’s always something on offer that you know you’ll treasure for years to come. She’s even been featured in some of the top magazines this country has to offer, so if it’s good enough for Cosmo it’s good enough for me.
Her latest collection is entitled ‘Viva del Mar’ meaning ‘life of the sea’ and it embodies everything that Summer on the coast of California is all about… palm trees, boats and sexy accessories. This new collection has just released on www.maggieangus.com and I adore all of it. The gold and black make the collection inter-changeable with seasons, meaning you won’t be hiding these beauties away through the Winter months.
She says: “This high impact collection is influenced by the riotous vibrancy of Southern California, Studio 54-esque disco cool and the abundance of energetic life beneath the waves. It embraces the quintessential summertime vibe of Miami, with gold-mirrored and black shiny acrylic creations taking centre stage.” The prices start at £14.00 so there’s no excuse not to totter along right now and treat yourself come pay day. For the price of something from Topshop you’ll nab yourself a classic design that will be the envy of your fellow fashionistas.
