MY BLOODY MARY METAL COLLECTION | 07.01.16
I'm jewellery obsessed, if you didn't know. If I leave my home forgetting to put my rings on I will feel completely naked, my fingers will feel bare and uncomfortable which sets me up for a pretty bad day. It's like a comfort blanket considering most of the ones I wear were bought for me and mean a little something. They all have a place in my heart and leaving my fingers or neck bare feels like I'm missing something. There's a company that's been high on my list of desirable jewels for a long time now and that's Bloody Mary Metal. I bet most of you know of the company by now considering a lot of well known bloggers don a part of their collection on the daily. But my love goes way back, way back when they had minimal Instagram followers and they hadn't had an article written about the in the paper, nicely done by the way guys! It might be that I adore the fact their situated in Cornwall, close (sort of) to were I used to live and where my mother still does live. Seeing something come from a little town I have distant but fond memories of feels strangely homely.
I'm so happy my collection is coming on strong with the help of my loved ones. For Christmas my father surprised me with one of their beautiful trademark black and gold box which made me giddy, it was so lovely that he remembered how much I loved their products that he chose one to give me as a gift with no help at all. It was the perfect surprise and adds so much to the meaning of it. Inside the box was the most beautiful half moon necklace titled Altair named after the brightest star in the constellation Aquila, and the 12th brightest star in the entire universe - apparently. When I saw it I thought of a necklace that Miley Cyrus used to wear in her boho days which was similar to this although flipped the other way. You can see it hanging off of her neck in this Lilac Wine cover she did four years back. Take a peek at the necklace and the glory that is this cover!
My Lone Feather necklace was also a gift from my father which is one of three he gifted me for my 21st birthday - spoilt rotten! I love how delicate this piece is, it sits perfectly on the chest and looks beautiful layered up with other chains too.
Let's move onto fingers as my favourite type of jewellery has to be rings. I often wear four of five at a time which might seem like a lot to some people but of me it's the more the merrier. I like the look of mixed metals and textures along with different coloured stones and jewels, there's so much variety out there which is good if you're fussy when it comes to buying jewellery. Anything from BMM will do for me though! The first ring I'll mention is one I actually purchased myself and that's the classic Crossbones which I bought from The Cove Boutique, a little store from my hometown that stocks independent brands, which is always important. This may be their most popular pieces but I still love it no matter how many times I see it.
Onto one of the only glitzy pieces I own and that's the beautiful Drusy Crown ring in midnight black. Future husband if you're reading, please note I would like my wedding ring to be a black gem stone, OK? None of that white diamond nonsense I'm all about the black, slightly Gothic jewels. Have you seen Shenae Grimes wedding ring? Picture that. For now this ring will do just fine, it doesn't come with a marriage after all...
There is a theme to all of these BMM products if you haven't noticed and that's the fact they have a native theme. I love anything of that kind and all of my jewellery shows it which is the main reason why I'm so in love with the company, it's like it was made for me. It's also quite funny that they match my tattoos all too well. I have cross over arrows just like the Textures Arrow ring as well as a native American portrait which reminds me of the Kika head piece ring. Obviously that isn't intentional so like I said, it was made for me!
If you have a love for wearable metal then you need to browse their products and make a purchase. Not only are you buying a life long piece of incredible jewellery but you're also supporting a independent business, a good one at that. Next on my wish list is a personalised stack ring but I need to think of something decent to get written on it, I've seen some pretty quirky ones on their Instagram feed. We'll see but for now my own personal collection will do nicely.
