Annina’s mismatched studs

For those who don’t (yet) share the same Annina Vogel obsession… this woman creates her namesake jewellery by sourcing the most beautiful vintage charms in Victorian gold.  She then redesigns many of them so that they become modern day treasures.  AND – this is the really important bit – every single piece of jewellery is one-of-a-kind.

My instagram followers might have seen the Victorian gold typewriter (picked out by the Smalls for last year’s bday) hanging round my neck.

Foxes, swans, crowns, flowers, birds, horseshoes, tiny lockets, cups… you name it…totally charm-ing.  And rather cleverly, Annina reworks many of these charms into appendages to rings, studs and more dangly earrings.

Clearly, I’m not the only one to be a Vogel magpie.  Celebrities (such as Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Alexa Chung and Florence Welch) and commoners alike flock to her stock of treasure.
