✿ Bluma Project Jewellery

The Bluma Project began with a simple idea:
Little things can mean a lot and that women can support each other globally.

Designer Beth Schaeffer travelled to Rwanda and found inspiration from the African crafts and textiles. She then founded in 2012 the Bluma Project.

The Bluma Project specialises in African-inspired jewellery crafted by hand at women’s cooperatives in Rwanda and Ghana using local materials.

Made beautifully using glass, wood, and paper beads, which are all commonly used materials in Bluma Project’s eye-catching necklaces and bracelets.

Each piece has been produced on site by a woman who was able to earn a sustainable wage and support her family, something that is often hard to come by in these locations.

Here at LuLLiLu we have two wonderful pieces from the Bluma Project just for you…

The Kayah Necklace – This hand crafted print cotton necklace features wooden, glass, and lacquered paper beads at the tiers. Adjustable length and tie closure. @ £58.00

Sesi Bracelets – A set of 5 hand crafted elastic bracelets features wooden, glass, and lacquered paper beads. @ £45.00

Both pieces will be a special item that you will cherish and love to wear .

P.S – Patterns and colours may vary due to the items being hand made individually.

✿ Audrey Hepburn – Style Icon.

Last week we celebrated the birthday of fashion icon Audrey Hepburn – Born 4th May 1929.

Audrey was such a glamorous, elegant and thoughtful woman that has a special place in the hearts of many.

We remember and admire her mostly here at LuLLiLu by her devotion to UNICEF – “I can testify to what UNICEF means to children, because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II,” said actress Audrey Hepburn on her appointment as a Goodwill Ambassador in 1989. “I have a long-lasting gratitude and trust for what UNICEF does.” As a result of her work for UNICEF over subsequent years, that gratitude is mutual.

Audrey was a British actress and humanitarian and is remembered as a film and fashion icon of the twentieth century and has graced the front cover of major fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s and Bazaar.

When we think Audrey Hepburn we think, Little black dress, Over sized Ray Ban sunglasses, Clean lines, simple yet bold accessories, minimalist palette, pearls and pure grace and elegance.

Her classic style has inspired women all over the world, still to this very day.

We at LulliLu have also been inspired by Audrey Hepburn when it comes to style, bringing classic and timeless pieces direct to your fingertips.

From her most famous film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s – The Little Black Dress.

The little black dress is a timeless but classic dress that we can wear over again and again, styled with different accessories to suit the occasion.

This dress can be worn with anything, anywhere and no matter what, we should look and feel great in this piece.

Here are LuLLiLu’s take on the Little Black Dress.

1. Merino Wool Clover Dress – Our pure merino wool Clover dress is fabulously flattering and has a cut-out clover leaf design at the front. This really is a dress to take you from day to evening with just a change of accessories. It works equally well with heels or boots.

2. Cape Dress – The elegant and flattering Cape Dress has a slim, fitted shift underneath a gauzy overlay. Perfect for chic days out and for day to night dressing. Wear with contemporary jewellery and high heels and expect everyone to ask you where your dress came from.

3. Black Tunic Dress – Black cotton knit Tunic Dress with an ivory ribbed trim and crochet yarn buttons. Perfect for smart days with a pair of heels or worn casually with our lace-up canvas shoes.

Another more casual, yet classic look that we love from Audrey was her nautical look.

Here at LuLLiLu we are in love with youthful, playful stripes. They never go out of fashion and can be worn over and over again, they are truly timeless.

We have a great collection of striped garments from dresses to knit tops, we have something for every women’s taste.

Our most recent favourites are:

1. Our Breton Navy Striped Knit Top – Our navy and ivory striped knitted long sleeved top is knitted in the finest 100% spun cotton and is a perfect casual piece to add to your weekend wardrobe.

2. Tri-colour Striped Knitted Top –  Tri-colour striped knitted top in the finest pure spun cotton with fun buttons and contrast cuffs in coral and primrose to give a new look to stripes.

I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.

I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.

I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
