Recently, we had the pleasure of working with the immensely talented Laurie Fleming of Laurie Fleming Jewellery to collaborate on a lookbook for her Solitaire bracelet collection. Laurie's jewellery is absolutely beautiful; she makes everything by hand and each piece has so much thought, detail, and hard work behind it. Laurie has been a friend of ours for a few years now, and it has been so exciting watching her progress and grow as a designer over that time. Her designs and expertise are both truly amazing, and we were so happy to finally be able to join forces to create something that represents her jewellery line as well as Good as Gold. This lookbook was shot in the ethereal and lush Allan Gardens Conservatory, which may just be one of the most underrated (or possibly unheard of?) spots in the city to spend an afternoon. Filled with botanical delights, the greenhouse is FREE to explore and virtually empty most days. Do yourself a favour and check it out! The Solitaire bracelet lookbook above was shot in the cactus greenhouse (the lookbook's working title: Girls with Hands in Cactuses), but there are several other magical-looking greenhouses to wander through as well, including the Orchid Room and glass-domed Palm House. We shot a lookbook for another one of Laurie's collections at Allan Gardens too, so keep an eye out as we will be posting it shortly!
We are also thrilled to share that Laurie has just launched her own website, www.laurieflemingjewellery.com, where you can shop all of her collections.
Oh, and finally... you all PROBABLY will want to check back here tomorrow, as we are doing our very first giveaway on Good as Gold! It's definitely a prize that anyone would be over the moon to win, so stay tuned.
