Currently it’s the most inspiring book My Heart Wanders by stylist, photographer and writer Pia Jane Bijkerk.

I was drawn to the book on Amazon when I was browsing and looking to spend my Christmas money by the incredible photography and romantic references to travelling to Paris, but upon receiving it, I discovered it’s a fascinating read about ourselves, travelling, making ourselves anew and actually accepting who we really are.

…And those pictures are to die for!

This book is and has been so inspiring this cold/wet/snowy January. I often find that interior design, photography and art inspire me in my jewellery desigsn as much if not more than fashion design. I have other books to share with you soon, I’ve been investing some time on feeding my creative spirit this 2012.

Available on UK Amazon right now, and in the US from April.
