The Story

..When did you fall in love with jewellery?

 

 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been dripping in gold jewellery and my biggest inspiration has always been my grandmother. She took me to get my ears pierced at five months old and since then I’ve never been without earrings on my ears, rings on my fingers and a chain around my neck - The quantities have just increased over the years. She’s a true collector and going to her place every weekend meant rummaging through her jewellery boxes, deciding what I wanted to wear. Her pieces are timeless and beautiful just like she is.

 

Jewellery is a way for me to express who I am. Each piece I wear tells a story and signifies a period of my life. I wake with my jewellery, I sleep with it and if I'm not wearing it I don’t feel like myself. Right now, I have 9 earrings, 9 rings, 8 bracelets and 4 chains on - I mean even I'm laughing at that! But for me, it's more than just having pretty pieces on my person, it's about representation, growth and meaning.

 

I’ve travelled the world, fallen in and out of love, suffered with mental health and felt so broken that I've had to literally rebuild, realign and reinvent myself. One thing that's remained consistent for me, is my jewellery. Sometimes armour, sometimes ornament, Coeur Fou is all about finding the pieces that speak to you and tell your story.

 

 

I’m so proud to share COEUR FOU (Crazy heart in French) with you all. My love affair with Paris has been long and full of adventures. I’ve lived, loved and lost there. It has a special place in my heart and will always feel like home. Nestled on a side street of 2nd arrondissement lives a bar - the crazy heart. Each time I’ve walked past it, I feel an intense connection that I can't describe. If there’s one thing I know, is that I most definitely have a crazy heart. I lead with love, I love whole heartedly, I love love, I am love and so are you.

 

From me, to you

Run wild. Embrace the adventure. Be the jewellery jangling, joyous individual you were destined to be. Wear your pieces with pride. Share your story. Acknowledge the struggles but more importantly see the beauty in everything you are. Empower others. Fall in love with life and let your crazy heart lead the way.

 

Keep your eyes peeled because there’s so much more to come, this is just the beginning of this crazy love affair.
