Reasons to love SMITH/GREY are plentiful, but their range 'I can't seem to get rid of the horses' is definitely my favourite. That's a brilliant name for a jewellery range! I can see it spreading out into other problems one might be having - I can't seem to get rid of the bees, I can't seem to get rid of the monsters, I can't seem to get rid of the scary dreams. It's certainly got potential.
Let's focus on the horses today - one made up problem at a time - they're expensive, but I'm almost certain they've brainwashed me (the horses, that is not the people at SMITH/GREY). I really want them all. There are loads of them. I'm starting to understand the problem.
This ring is excellent. My love for massive rings is going nuts right now. I might like the idea of mini horses galloping over my fingers more than I like snakes and jewels.
These horse studs remind me of the little dolphin studs that you could buy from Tammy Girl. For that reason, they are marvellous.
Every single piece is handmade, and it'll take up to ten days for your piece to arrive (I'm assuming that while SMITH/GREY can't seem to get rid of the horses, they can be a bugger to catch).
The hoop earrings are my favourite, there's something a little carousel-ish about them. Prices for the range start at £55 for those adorable studs, and they whoosh right up to £1290 for a 13 horse necklace. If I bought that, I'd politely request that SMITH/GREY did a range called 'I can't seem to get rid of the bank manager'.
