Being interested in fashion and design, I’ve always had a bit of a thing for textures. Designs themselves are of course where people place the most importance, but sometimes the power of material can be overlooked. When it comes to style I really enjoy experimenting with different fabrics and love how knitted wool connotes feelings of Autumn, wooden textures, of nature and white linen of warmer climates or British Summer. Similarly, I adore combining different metals to create unique and interesting jewellery looks.
Although I tend to sway towards quite subtle and classic jewellery, as soon as I was introduced to the concept of wooden watches I was completely intrigued and knew that I’d love to own one. JORD specialises in wooden watches and kindly offered to send me a timepiece of my own choosing. Of course, I opted for one which I thought was super versatile and which I’d be able to get a lot of use out of; Ebony and Sable from the CASSIA series.
The watch was delivered surprisingly quickly considering its rather lengthy journey from the US. The only slight glitch was the necessity of my payment of a £16 import tax, which I was able to go online and pay via the Royal Mail website so that they could re-attempt delivery. I’ve had it a couple of weeks now, and have already gotten so much wear out of it. It goes with almost everything in my wardrobe and looks particularly striking with my black and white dress that I got from Zara last year. JORD watches are absolutely perfect for Summer because the lack of metal makes them so much more comfortable to wear when it’s sunny!
