Summer wings

My dad brought me these two magazines back when he went on a business trip to the states recently. Ones about jewellery and the other one is about altered couture. They are amazing magazines better than any creative publication that I've seen over here. The jewellery one I think is a sister magazine to  belle armoire. If you have a second you should check the website out :) A lot of the clothes and jewellery although not practical are so gorgeous! There's a lot of vintage-esque things in their as well so you are a fan of shabby chic or vintage you will probably like it :)

*This is quite a photo heavy post just to warn you in advance I tried to photograph my favourite images in the magazine but  I ended up with to many favourites!*

The magazines tell you how to make the items featured and have interviews with the designers where they explain their inspiration behind the pieces they make.

I love this charm bracelet its gorgeous :)

I think this one is probably one of my favourites
