I have fallen head-over-heels in love with jewellery designer Tessa Metcalfe as of late. Her jewellery is stunning and so quirky I can't wait to own a piece myself (currently making the hard choice for my birthday present to myself). But jewellery isn't Tessas only talent- she's a taxidermist too (don't worry nothing dies by her hands). The mice jewellers she created for Baroque in Brighton are beyond cute! 

Look at them.

These two guys are by far my favourite.  

I know taxidermy isn't most people's "thing" but I've always loved anything to do with bones and anatomy and taxidermy- which is strange as I've been a vegetarian since I was 5. I think I'm just attracted to the "use everything" ideal. 

Seriously though you should check out Tessa Metcalfes jewellery. Especially her Pearl of London collection. I love this ring (pretty sure THIS is the one for me) and her claw earrings and this beautiful necklace. There all cast from pigeon feet (again died naturally) which are so amazing cool, inspired by finding the beauty in the gutter and her home town :)

P.S. I just reread my previous post and realised I'm slacking- I didn't show you my other favourite pieces from Chelsea Doll! Sorry guys.  


  1. I spotted her jewellery at London Fashion Weekend and fell in love with it! Taxidermy definitely isn't my thing (there was a bit going on at her stall) but there's no denying she's extremely talented!

  3. Yes, it's little creepy, but i totally love it, it looks soooo good, cool ;3

  4. Oh my word! The little mice are too adorable! I mean, it's creepy in a way, but they turned out looking like the perfect little jewelers ;)

  8. A mate of mine once lived with a taxidermist. Her work was amazingly detailed and oddly fascinating, even if my friend did hate finding the odd dead mouse in the freezer!
