Not Another Bill Collaboration

all photos by NotAnotherBill
Few months ago I was contacted by Ned Corbett-Winder, founder and brain behind , for a potential collaboration. Introducing his clever company he simply said :
"No-one gets anything good in the post anymore apart from bills
and a few pizza menu's.
So in exchange for a fee,I'd send my subscribers a surprise interesting package
once a month to make them smile and brighten up their mailbox.
For me it is about curation, discovery and an appreciation of craft and design.
 I will never send out anything i don't believe in or that you can easily find elsewhere."
His ethos is "To surprise and delight you whilst introducing you to great artists designers and brands."
So how could I not have been interested in doing a collaboration with such a cool website?
We spent much time finding a word that I could encrypt in the bracelets using the Morse Code Alphabet.
Eventually we opted for POW, which was so much fun to make.
The morse-code bracelets are all handmade using 14ct goldfilled chain, beads, tubes and wire and silk threads.
I really hope all his subscribers for the month of January enjoyed their POW surprise...
Althoght the POW bracelets are an exclusive collaboration with, you can order your MorseCode Bracelets via ESOTIC jewellery Online Bazaar.

Daria Werbowy for Maiyet

Beautiful campaign for Maiyet featuring model Daria Werbowy shot by Cass Bird in Kenya.
Maiyet philosophy has stolen my heart. It is a role model company.

Pirelli Calendar 2013

Every year for the Pirelli Calendar  a great photographer shoots some of the most beautiful models around the world in a breath taking location.
This time, for 2013, Steve Mc Curry, a real master of photo reportage ( think of that famous little blue eyed Afghanistan girl on the National Geographic cover) decided that good looking girls wasn't enough, so he picked beautiful women that are involved in environmental and humanistic charities.
And he done it in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by many considered the world centre of cultures, races, economics....
A great work.

From my instagram 2013

First breakfast of the New Year : tea and my favourite italian buscuits Pan Di Stelle

Celebrating the beginning of 2013 with old-school Sparklers, thank you to my husband who always make me happy, feeling like a kid again.

Waiting for the New Year wearing my "never-without" jewellery ( tahitian pearl and diamond engagement ring, wedding band and pyrite bracelet with tahitian pearl charm ) and a sneaky peek to the brand new Surfer Girl bracelet in bright coral rope. Happyness.

Childhood memories of all my winter holidays spent at our place in the mountains, Cortina D'Ampezzo, Italy. Traditional clock now in my son's bedroom.
Thank you all for supporting ESOTIC jewellery in 2012 !
I'll do my best to create more individual pieces for you to enjoy in this New Year.
stay tune...
