Lingerie and jewellery go together like two peas in a pod; they can both be simple and elegant or statement pieces that have the power to fully transform an outfit. So it was only a matter of time before we checked in on our favourite jewellery creator and fellow independent London brand, Wolf & Moon, who know a bit more about bling then we do!

Creativity is all about collaboration and so we teamed up again with the amazing team at Wolf & Moon to put together a sparkling showcase that illuminates the power of both lingerie and jewellery. Pairing our new season Rose Dust styles with their delightfully delicate pieces, the collab makes for the perfect springtime musing.
We caught up with the lady who started it all, and having grown from a one woman stall in East London to a small team of dedicated designers creating and making in Hackney, the brand is on the move up. We chat to Hannah Davis to learn about her beginnings, her inspiration, and whether she’s a morning person or not…
What gave you the idea to start Wolf & Moon?
A passion for designing, making and wanting to work for myself! I have loved making jewellery ever since I was 16. When I moved to London for university an opportunity came up to have a stand at an East London market and it all went from there.
What inspirations would you say Wolf & Moon has in terms of its style?
We think a pared down look goes perfectly with our jewellery; I love the idea that an outfit can be made with a statement accessory. I also love a bit of colour, but not too much!
Our mission statement is “Graphic and modern jewellery for the curious and independent.” We believe that everyone can be creative and interesting with their style by wearing something a bit different and handmade. You can still be sophisticated whilst doing so!
For me, wearing jewellery makes me feel good about myself. Putting on certain pieces completes my daily routine, whilst others get me in the mood for going out, like getting the lippy out on a Friday evening!
I am pretty obsessed with pottery at the moment. I’ve been going to classes for over two years and have become a member of an open studio which I now go to 2 or 3 times a week! I’m starting to work on some ceramic pieces for Wolf & Moon which is exciting.
And finally, what do your mornings look like?
I turn my alarm off for about an hour, I am not a morning person! When I finally get out of bed, I have a shower, get myself some toast or cereal and a mug of Earl Grey tea. Then I put on some make up whilst watching breakfast TV before cycling into the studio.
