Designer Spotlight: Kayleigh Carter of A Weathered Penny

Where do you find inspiration?

I find inspiration in shapes, art and architecture, but this season and going forward has seen a lot more looser shapes and we have began working with different materials which has really helped elevate our brand...I also love a good pinning session on Pinterest. 

What is your “go to” piece of jewellery at the moment?

I'm currently loving all our resin pieces and I wear my Silver Face Ring everyday! If I need some gold my go to pair are the Gold Ovals. 

Do you have a morning / evening ritual?

In the mornings I'm always running late, but my husband and I make homemade fruit smoothies every morning before leaving for the studio.

What is your earliest jewellery memory?

When I was younger (around 11 years old) I used to make jewellery that I sold to friends and family... who knew it would come my profession. 

What is your idea of “a perfect Sunday”?

I always try -if I'm not working - to have a lay in at the weekends, I love sleep... Then it's all about taking it easy, walking the dog with friends and finding some nice independent shops and a florist, eating good food and drinking yummy coffees. My local cafe does lovely Rose and Lavender Lattes.

Which country is next on your bucket list?

I really want to go to the Maldives and swim in the sea with pigs.

What is your favourite food?

Mexican or Thai
