When Life Gives You Lemons…

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 presetI can’t count the hours I have lost obsessing over things, whether it’s a J.W.Anderson sweater or a Prada Baltic Blue tote, my train of thought chugs away to create dream outfits while my body waits patiently on the platform for its return to reality.

What really caught my attention though was the vertebrate jewellry, taking my obsession to a whole new level.

After gathering dust for the last year due to the necklace snapping in half, I decided to embrace the motto “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” or in my case a bracelet. Not being one to give up an obsession easily, I turned half the spine like necklace into a one off bracelet that not only does no one else have, but into something far more easy to wear.

I do love it when an obsession bares fruit.
