Romeo Foxtrot Designs

This gorgeous Cape Town jewellery designer and I met long before either of us even thought jewellery would bring us back in touch. We met on a shoot (we were modelling dressing gowns. Yes. Glam I know) and her infectious laugh and bubbly personality struck me immediately. So you can imagine my delight when she started producing jewellery that I wanted to fill my jewellery box with. Turns out she started making jewellery for herself and posting pics on social media.. and the orders came pouring in!

TOLD you she's gorgeous. She is wearing on of her 'Feather for each Wind that Blows' earring.

I bought one of her bracelets as a treat to myself for my birthday this year (see the post here) but I saw on Twitter the other day she has just launched a line of rings. And you all know me and rings! Her jewellery brand is called Romeo Foxtrot Designs, her nickname by one of her friends who used to call her that in order to simplify Rouxmia.

I thought it was quite catchy and then decided to go with it! I googled it and I found out that in the army it used to mean “run like f**k” so it made it even more fun to use! Thanks Alex Hulley!

This beautiful black diamante ring is R150.

Rouxmia finds her inspiration on Pinterest as well as when she walks into her suppliers. Her jewellery is made up of nickel free Tibetan silver, pleather and suede. What I like is that she makes it as affordable as possible without skimping on the quality.

This gold based ring with a brown stone is only R100.

Romeo Foxtrot currently has six rings but, like me, Rouxmia loves rings so promises that there will be more to come.

The swirl rings are R130 each.

Rouxmia’s favourite piece of jewellery that she makes,

is probably my suede wrap charm bracelets, because it is unique and that came to me in a dream. I make the originals and I absolutely love charms!

The suede wrap bracelets are R220.

Her next line will be a prayer bead line with which she is currently busy as well as a T-Shirt line in the near future. But MY favourite is this little baby right here..

So yes, today is the day I get to be the centre of attention 😉 Also, I heard a rumour that on birthdays calories don’t count..

Psshhht.. As if I need another excuse to eat cake.

Also, being a true magpie, I decided to buy myself a few birthday presents. What’s a birthday if you can’t buy yourself prezzies?

I bought the grey suede one and this bracelet is perfect to start stacking! R100

Not content with just that, I need a simple little necklace and saw the perfect on to treat myself with;

How cute is this necklace?? It's a little sterling silver bunny on a 40cm closed link chain. R150.

While I was sitting doing this post, my boyfriend sneakily asked if he could help with the post. I was a little confused until he whipped out an early birthday prezzie!

Yay! I have just thrown my other feather earrings out because they were looking a little gross. So very stoked with these!

I spotted this ring a while ago and loved it and he was sneaky (and thoughtful) enough to remember. How much do you like the shape?

Girls, forgive me. The post today was totally self indulgent however if it makes you feel better, just know that by the end of the day I will look like this..

OD on cake.

OD on cake. Sugar rush. Must lie down.

Have a wonderful weekend!
