“Jewellery takes people’s minds off your wrinkles.” Sonja Henie

Dominic Jones’s seriously amazing AW09 collection. The 2 thorn knuckleduster would look simply divine on my hand! I think Dominic should accessories the ladies in the next installment of the Twilight series or Alice Dellal, Lizzy Jagger, Eliza Cummings and Emma Chitty should just take their place, they’d make incredible vampires. His collection was photographed by Matt Irwin.

Unfortunately I saved this to my computer a few years ago without taking note of who it’s by.

Ohhh, it’s all one big long wish list! I’d better watch Derren Brown’s show tonight to see if he lets on how to predict the lottery numbers.
