The Once and Future Queens

Simone Lueck‘s advert inviting “fabulous, striking, interesting older woman to pose as glamorous movie star” resulted in a stunning series of photographs, now being exhibited in the UK at the Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool. I love the firm grip on individual glamour all these ladies possess and the sense that the Golden Age of Hollywood still exists. I hope to find it on my trip to LA next week…

The exhibition is curated by the wonderful Martin Parr and is on until 13th March. Read more about it here.

Party Earrings

Bright yellow tassels graced the pages of our favourite daily read, the Guardian’s G2 today.

Now if only we could make it into the Sam Cam’s diary column. I mean, HOW amaze?

Swanfield returns

jenny jenny girl at Sportsgirl X Antipodium launch

Antipodium, the quintessential Antipodean label transposed to London, took a trip back home in June to launch their exclusive collection for Sportsgirl.

One attendee to the launch bash, almost certainly the youngest (and most glamorous), was spotted wearing her bespoke scaled-down jenny jenny tassel earrings in classic turquoise.

More images of party people are up on pedestrian.tv and the Antipodium X Sportsgirl collection should be available online imminently.

Sitting in style

Blog blip

I’m afraid with our web re-do there’s been a bit of a blogging break, and some of our old posts have been lost to the e-ether. But never mind, onwards and upwards or at least sideways. You can now also follow jenny jenny doings on Facebook by clicking here.

East End Eden

Have you ventured along Balls Pond Road recently? Past delicious Malaysian joint Puji-Puji, beyond the idyllic Alms Houses, opposite the always useful Leyland has sprung up a darling little parade of shop-ettes.

And it’s at 26a Balls Pond Road that the gorgeous Em & Ian have set up shop, opening East of Eden in 2010. The address is worth noting as the stars seem to have aligned along this unassuming East London street. As it turns out Ian’s Grandfather was actually BORN AT THAT VERY ADDRESS! Evidence below in the form of the 1915 birth certificate that proudly hangs on the shop wall.

Great-Grandad Cyril was even a Master Jeweller it seems! Not that I am attempting to compete but my jewellery wares are currently in place in the shop alongside a gorgeous array of Stop Staring dresses and other treasures, with the super-stylish Emma on hand to help. Do pop by and say Hi to Cyril from me.

‘Tis the season

Christmas shopping frenzy is in full swing, and I have a treat for any London-based readers (or anyone who fancies paying a visit?) in the form of…

The Inaugural Annual Jenny Jenny Christmas Shopping and Festive Tipple Party!

…or in other words, a little evening in the lovely surrounds of the Swanfield store with exclusive discounts and free pretty gift wrapping for those last minute gifts (even if they’re going in your own stocking) as well as the chance to get merry thanks to my lovely friends at Ketel One vodka.

Next Friday, 17th December 2010 from 7pm til late

Please do come along and say hello and let’s raise a glass this party season. Any attendees who arrive wearing their jenny jenny tassel earrings get a bonus discount! I want a room full to the brim with them!

Supermarket Sarah X Rosy Nicholas X jenny jenny

I have long been an avid window-shopper of the wonderful wallscapes created for the Supermarket Sarah site. Sarah sources the most interesting and esoteric artefacts and displays them artfully online where in the merest click of a finger they can be yours!

Other makers, creators, movers and various shakers have also been curating their own wall-based-supermarkets, the most recent of which is Rosy Nicholas . Her wall, which launches today, features a full spectrum of my tassel earrings dangling across her alcove. In an unprecedented array of colours (as I previewed here) they are available to buy direct from the site RIGHT NOW!


Swanfield spread the love

Things are going swimmingly at the Swanfield hotspot on Hoxton St.

Dazed Digital have given a little sneak peek online here.

Time Out have sent those in the know our way this week and the Swans themselves have blogged about my wares just today. Have a look here

Party time!

Just a little reminder about the soiree tomorrow at Swanfield…

Lots of exclusive colours, new styles and tassel earrings now available for non-pierced ears!

Free drinks, special discounts and I’ve even bought some crackers.

See you there!

She comes in colours…

Here are a gaggle of Tassel Earrings prepared for a special appearance somewhere fun that will be revealed to you here soon. New colours include a lovely bright yellow (why not co-ordinate with your Selfridges shopping bag?!) and a soft sparkly silver, very winter wonderland.

Which colour is your favourite?
