Bracelets by Lola Rose, poems by Katherine Russell...Very excited to share the news that I spent the last few months of 2015 writing poems for one of my favourite jewellery brands, 'Lola Rose'!
Lola Rose was founded by Nikki Gerwirtz, who was recently awarded an MBE for services to jewellery design. Nikki's story of how she started at her kitchen table hand making tumble bracelets and from there the journey to becoming one of the most successful fashion jewellery brands in the UK is truly inspirational!
I started modeling for Lola Rose about 6 or 7 years ago on the QVC shopping channel and it was only by chance that Nikki heard about my poetry after reading a poem I had written for one of their presenters birthdays. She mentioned to me that she was designing a new boxed collection of bracelets and asked if i'd like to collaborate with her by writing a selection of poems to be displayed beside each piece. I have been writing poetry for birthdays, anniversaries and anything that inspired me for as long as I can remember but cannot say how excited I am to be working with Lola Rose on these new collections! I will be continuing with my writing and who knows where it may lead next!
A selection of the Semi Precious Boxed 'Poetry' Bracelets are available now on the Lola Rose website, at John Lewis and on QVC. The collection is growing all the time, it's really great to see the new bracelets and poems being released and hearing the feedback about them. So whether you're treating yourself or looking for an ideal gift, these bracelets are just beautiful and the poems inside will hopefully send a warm inspirational message to any lady who owns one!
