Are your outfit choices based on what’s clean rather than what’s stylish? Does baby puke on or destroy anything you actually feel decent in? Maybe you once loved jewellery but haven't worn it for a while? I completely understand.
Many mums, myself included, feel like their sense of style slips away after having children. They spend their time shopping for cool baby clothes whilst themselves making do with whatever they can find in the wardrobe that fits. When I had my boys I had absolutely no desire to splurge on new clothes, especially as I went up a dress size and intended to get back into shape (still hoping!). So I made do with what I had and jazzed up my outfits with colourful necklaces and accessories.
I felt like I was finding myself again, sort of.
My first son had other ideas though. He chewed on and broke some of my favourite necklaces with his grabby little fingers and Hercules strength. So I stopped wearing jewellery completely but I missed it especially as my mum clothes were mostly monochrome and I felt pretty drab.
I’ve been making and restoring jewellery for years so I used my skills to create a stylish and practical range of jewellery, especially for mums. Inspired by high street trends and seasonal colours it looks like fashion jewellery and is safe for baby to chew and fiddle with.'
and so Little Magpies was created.
