Since the move to Newcastle there's been an explosion of ideas and creativity in the company.
We've been overwhelmed by the city's style; Newcastle Fashion week, the Late shows, the nightlife and the swagger of it all!
There's nothing better than hitting Tyne Bar, standing under that huge arch and style watching everyone. We're glad to say our jewellery has slipped into the trends smoother than that slice of cucumber in your gin and tonic!
The fashion shops in the area amazing but the vintage scene has blown us away. The High Bridge quarter has got enough pieces of classic and crazy clothing to rival Grace Kelly and Grace Jones combined!
The talent of the guys in Eric is astonishing, reworked vintage to the highest standard. Their clothes not only show their tailoring prowess but also their vision. Just like our own recycled jewellery they see the potential in everything!
All we can say is that we're so glad to be here and can't wait to see what the city's got to offer us next!

The Late Shows 2014
This years Late Shows were a veritable hive of activity, with all kinds of weird and wonderful things going on. We spent Friday night in the Ouseburn valley, browsing the beautiful open studios in Lime Street Studios, hanging out with the animals in Ouseburn Farm and busting some vintage moves on the dance floor in the Toffee Factory, with retro cocktails.
Saturday night was spent in the city centre, checking out The Laing Art Gallery's space themed exhibitions, making robots out of rubbish. Watching the Bangshees rocking out in the City Library, a female group of drummers who were allowed to rip the silence out of the library with awesome rhythms! Followed by hours of fun in the 6 floors of The Newbridge Project open studios.
The Late Shows have 50 venues around Newcastle open after hours, a bit like a pub-crawl but for all things arty and creative! It is such good fun I recommend it to everyone!
