Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

This Sunday the 31st of March we celebrate Mother’s Day in the UK, on this special day we get to spoil our mums and show them how much we really appreciate all that they do for us all year around come rain or shine.

Being a mother myself to a beautiful and adventurous little girl has made me appreciate my mum even more as she is not only a great mum to me and my brother but a wonderful Grandmother to my daughter and nephews and niece. Anytime I need a helping hand she is there without hesitation. She has taught me so much about being a great mum, and I love her so much for all her words of wisdom and devolution to being my SuperMum.

Macramé Street Photoshoot

Since launching my new Macramé collection earlier this month the question I get asked to most is; how do you wear it?  So I wanted to share some images from a shoot I did with the gorgeous Nicquel, Eloise and Harmonious Brown. This was my first photography shoot that I shot myself and I must say we had loads of fun on the streets of South London.  In this shoot I wanted to show how my new Macramé pieces could be worn over an outfit, so I styled the ladies in black from head to toe to act as a backdrop for the Macramé body jewellery.

First up is the beautiful Eloise riding the elevator in style, I have accessorised her outfit with my gold VICTORY earrings and gold ASHANTI septum to enhance the gold flecks in the AZIZIA body jewellery. To add extra sparkle to the outfit I used gold glitter in her hair to compliment the gold accessories.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Next up is Nicquel who is wearing ZAKIYA body jewellery, VICTORY earrings in rose gold and MAYA rose gold septum, all the jewellery stands out so beautifully against her fiery copper hair and black ensemble.  This look is a perfect example of how you can transform a plain black outfit into a head turner.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Last but by no means least is Harmonious Brown rocking our KENDI body jewellery, VICTORY earrings in silver and MALIKA septum ring.  The tassels in the body pieces is mirrored in her braids which I love and I added some diamanté gems above her brow to give a modern tribal vibe to the overall outfit.

 

SHOP THE LOOK:

Septum Rings for Afropunk London

This Saturday the 24th of September AFROPUNK makes it debut in London town at Alexandra Palace, the line up for the festival include SZA, Akala, the Noisettes, Laura Mvula as well as the legendary Grace Jones. Yesterday we were honoured and excited to be mentioned in a TimeOut article by Matilda Egere-Cooper ‘How to slay at Afropunk this weekend‘.

elisha francis, afropunk, london events

The Afropunk movement was inspired by a documentary written and directed by James Spooner in 2003 which highlighted Black Punks in America, two years later in 2005 the first Afropunk festival was held in Brooklyn and has become an annual event.  This year the festival has already hit Europe via Paris and London is next to experience the live music, good vibes and eclectic fashion styles.

The style is afrocentric meets modern punk and everything weird and wonderful in-between, one of my favourite signature looks is the tribal face paint rocked by many fashionista’s at these events think FKA Twigs and you’ll be on the right track.

FKA twigs, elisha francis, afropunk

I also love the look of all the glorious natural fro’s, dreadlocks and braids that are celebrated in the most beautifully and elaborate styles, check out one of my new favourite style icons Ladene Clark who’s deadlocks and fashion sense eclipse the essence of the festival.

Who is She? Bomani Woman (Episode 2)

This week see’s the release of Episode 2 of the ‘Who is she? Bomani Woman’ series and I am excited to introduce my gorgeous sister Nicquel Jackson.

She is a model and co-founder of The Curl People who celebrate self-love and diversity – Everything curly, coily and beautiful.

This 5’9″ beauty worked her magic on set for my new jewellery campaign featuring our Victory earrings.  Make-up artist Sarah Elizabeth enhanced Nicquel’s stunning look with natural make-up to ensure her beautiful freckles and glowing skin shown through.  It was a proud moment to see my little sister bring to life the fierceness of a Bomani Woman™.

Who is She? Bomani Woman (Episode 1)

Jewellery is more then body adornment, it is a personal style, an expression of who we are and a way of life. I want you to meet some of the people who make up our Bomani Tribe™ and bring our jewellery collections to life.

So allow me to introduce Nicole who features in our new jewellery campaign: VICTORY
She is a model/actress from London with Indian and Israeli descent, her beauty is mesmerising and her inner glow shines bright through her smile.  I was really excited to work with her and see her come alive in front of the camera.
