Muddy says: Calling all hippy chicks! This online jeweller offers well-priced designs, featuring a flurry of feathers and a bohemian vibe.
It can be hard to find well-priced costume jewellery – the high street isn’t very good at it for some reason, so it’s often a case of trawling small indie brands until you sniff out a designer you like. And we really like what online jeweller Brave Lotus is doing. Featuring lots of feather motifs (we love a feather), hands of Hamsa and turquoise-hued semi-precious gemstones, the pendants and dangly earrings have a pleasingly wafty boho feel, with the designs inspired by founder Gemma’s travels to the Far East.
Lots of the pieces are rendered in mixed metals, which feels very modern – you don’t just have to slavishly stick to silver, gold or rose gold these days. It reminds me of the kind of jewellery you pick up from the local market on a far-flung beach holiday to set off your tan. And most of it comes in at under £50, making it ideal for gifts for girlfriends – or a little pressie for yourself.
