About three years ago I was introduced by a friend of mine to bohemian costume jewellery designer Samantha Wills and I have been pretty much obsessed with her collections ever since. So when my best friend’s birthday (who introduced me to the brand) was coming up I thought; something from Samantha Wills would be just perfect. After browsing the website I fell in love with these gorgeous ‘All for you’ Grande Earrings (link).
I have to admit that once they arrived it became extremely hard to part with them because I love them so much myself haha. I really hope she loves them but I might have to get a pair for myself now too ;)
Samantha Will’s success has been called “Australia’s biggest export since Vegemite” How it all started; “One school holiday, Mum took me to beading classes at the local craft shop in Port Macquarie, where I grew up. That’s where I learnt the basics. I was 11 years old,” Sam says.
She made friendship bracelets for her school friends and swore to her teachers she’d make a living out of surf-style sterling silver necklaces – which isn’t far from true. When she was 20 she moved to Sydney and opened a stall at the Bondi markets, held every Sunday. A friend then offered her a miniscule stand at Australian Fashion Week, where she logged $17,000 worth of orders, and that was it – by 21 years old, Sam had launched her first collection.
Not only do I love her jewellery but I also follow her on Instagram (link) and adore seeing everything about her fabulous and stylish life in NYC! Here are some other Samantha Wills pieces I’m currently lusting after.
