One of our favourite jewellery designers, Chupi Sweetman, has said that she is "overwhelmed and incredibly happy" after winning the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award at the prestigious UK Jewellery Awards 2018.

The Entrepreneurial Spirit category was awarded for the first time this year, to recognise an inspiring individual who has shown great determination, leadership and ambition to build a successful business.

“I’m utterly overwhelmed and incredibly happy to win the Entrepreneurial Spirit award," Chupi, who founded Chupi in 2013, said after the event.

"It was surreal to be at the event surrounded by some of the most brilliant designers from around the world – I felt lucky just to be shortlisted but to win was something really special."

Talking about her dream to make "beautiful jewellery" in Ireland, Chupi admitted that many people thought she was crazy when she first started out.

However, after her big win on Wednesday, the designer, whose inspiration comes from the imperfect beauty of wild and natural things like feathers and twigs, admits that her dream now feels real. 

"Everyone thought I was crazy, but standing on stage in London, winning our first international award, it all feels so incredibly real, and it’s all thanks to the love and support of our customers.”

The annual awards night took place at London’s Artillery Gardens on Wednesday 4 July, seeing more than 700 members of the watch and jewellery world come together to celebrate the industry’s achievements over the past 12 months.

Well done, Chupi – we're absolutely delighted for you.

Chupi Jewellery has warmed our hearts with this incredibly moving gesture. The Dublin designer Chupi and her team kindly created 280 necklaces for each of the Magdalene Laundry survivors.

The heartwarming gesture has strengthened our love of Chupi and everything she does.

She tweeted about the touching project: “For #DublinHonoursMagadalenes we made a necklace for each of the 280 women who experienced the horror of the Magdalene laundries. My brilliant team spent yesterday making, packing and writing cards to these brave women. Thank you @NorahCasey for making it possible to honour them.”

The necklaces were wrapped up in dainty little Chupi boxes and sent to the women who were being honoured in Dublin this week.

Founder of the jewellery company Chupi Sweetman and the team have received waves of praise with the tweet receiving nearly 800 likes.

Vivienne Flood of RTÉ wrote: “What a lovely thought. Congratulations and thanks to both of you for all your efforts to honour these courageous women on all our behalf.”

Anna Geary shared, “A beautiful thing to do for these women xx”

Another Twitter user wrote: “What a lovely thing to do for these ladies. Well done everyone involved.”

Earlier this week, the survivors were honoured at two events in the capital. It is understood that women travelled from all around the world to visit Dublin for this historic occasion.

The survivors were honoured at a garden party at Áras an Uachtaráin hosted by President Michael D Higgins and later attended a gala dinner at Mansion House.

It is believed that at least 10,000 women passed through the doors of Magdalene Laundries in Ireland from 1922 to 1996.

The President acknowledged how women were failed by the State which should have 'had your welfare at its core.'

Ambassador for Dublin Honours Magdalenes, Norah Casey shared, “This event is not about celebration, it’s about dignity and respect.”

If you like makeup, and especially makeup tutorials on YouTube, you must know and love Lisa Eldridge.

Currently global creative director of Lancôme, the British makeup artist have been producing the best videos and we swear by her universally chic makeup look and her acne covering makeup.

If you have been watching Lisa's videos, you must also have noticed the gorgeous rings she sports as she applies makeup. And you are not the only one. 

Designed by William Welstead, the rings that she stacks have been her signature and apparently, they have been inspiring countless copycats. 

“When I noticed companies were selling rings using my name, that was the moment I was like, ‘This is crazy,’ ” said Eldridge to Vogue.

Her passion for the gems has made her become a close friend of Welstead and the pair has collaborated to create the Lisa Eldridge Collection, launching tomorrow at London Dover Street Market.

Consisting of 25 gold and sterling silver rings, the collection is set with stone shades reminding the colour palette of an eye shadow box. All the stones have been sourced by Welstead in Bangkok and India. 

As for the price point, the collection will be more affordable than Welstead's namesake work, ranging from 400 to 750 euros.

Here at SHEmazing, we're with you on that one which is why we're so enchanted by Thomas Sabo's Together series.

Universal Standard, a clothing line which caters for women between sizes 10-28, are all about setting the standard.

Indeed, their online mission statement declares: "We had become tired of making compromises, of always settling for what "worked" instead of what we really wanted, of sacrificing freedom of choice and personal style because of an arbitrary dividing line determined by size."

 

We call it our wear-anywhere dress. It's the Crepe Geneva. Shop the look. Link in bio.

"No more compromising. It's time to #SetTheStandard," they insist.

And it looks like they are no longer happy to simply set the standard when it comes to a woman's wardrobe, now have their sights set on her jewellery box.

 

Your style. Your size. Our limited edition jewelry collection is finally here! Made specifically for you. #nowyoucan

A post shared by Universal Standard (@universalstandard) on

Speaking to Glamour magazine, the brand's co-founder,  Alexandra Waldman, explained that mainstream jewellery has often presented issues for both herself and their plus-sizes customers.

“I know from personal experience that finding beautiful modern pieces of jewellery that fit and look native to my body type is nearly impossible,” she said.

 

• Why can't I find jewelry that fits without some cheap adjustable closure?#nowyoucan (launching tomorrow!)

A post shared by Universal Standard (@universalstandard) on

“Even longer necklaces don’t fall in the right spot on the front of the body -everything tends to look clipped, cheap, or semi-disposable."

“I’m a grown woman – I don’t want to wear an adjustable ring that I have to squeeze together around my finger," she reasoned.

And with clothes and jewellery under their belt, Universal Standard aren't content to sit on their laurels.

"Jewellery is just the beginning. We want women above size 10 to feel like they have options, like things are getting better all the time. That's our reason for being."

And the pieces are far from pricey, with most starting at approximately €35.00.

When people travel around the world, it's not uncommon for them to miss home. Many of us have been through it.

So, when this women, Meghan Coomes, worked in TV, she wanted a constant reminder of her family for when she had to travel.

“My family and I grew up hearing about my grandparents’ torrid love affair,” she told BuzzFeed.

That's when Coomes decided that she wanted a way to immortalize the letters *and* get a wearable keepsake at the same time.

“They were long-distance dating during WWII, and they wrote each other daily while apart — three years, three months, and four days.”

And from that, Meghan got a great idea.

She decided to use her grandparents' love letters, and make them into jewelery so she'd have something special on her for when she was on the road.

“I asked my grandma if I could use one of their letters to make a bracelet, so that I always had my family with me.

It takes Coomes roughly one day to make a piece of jewelry.

“She loved the idea. I used the back page of an original letter from New Year’s Eve in 1943.”

With that, Meghan made a necklace and ring and brought it everywhere with her.

She began having people compliment her on her jewelery constantly, and after a couple of years, Forever Yours, Agnes jewelery company was born.

Then, Coomes' jewelry company Forever Yours, Agnes was born.

With her business booming, Meghan now makes a copy of the letters and adheres them on to clear glass. She then adds jewels and stones to complete each piece.

Meghan's creations are absolutely gorgeous and we just love the Notebook-style beginning to her story.

We're kinda only getting it into our heads this week that Christmas is over.

And when Christmas is over, it feels like everything else is a million miles away. Good weather will never come again, the darkness is going to stay forever, and we'll all just have to wear ugly woolly jumpers for the rest of our days.

Yep, January can be super depressing, and while we can't change the weather, we can wear beautiful god-damn jewellery that makes us look like *~queens~* from the South of France.
