Recently I was contacted by the enchanting Mr Curtis, about trying some pieces from his new jewellery range. Being a fan of vintage, tattoos and jewellery as soon as I saw the range I knew it was a match made in heaven.
Sewing Machine Pendant – £8.04 – Available here
Mr Curtis is a full time tattooist in Edinburgh, influenced by the current trends for vintage style imagery in tattoos, he was inspired to design laser cut jewellery featuring his fantastic designs. I adore the mix of classic tattoo art and femininity of his designs, which feature roses, sewing machines and pretty little tea sets. His designs are completely nostalgic while still being completely up to date with popular tattoo styles today.
“I debated for ages over a name for the range and online shop eventually deciding that “Mr Curtis Designs” said it all. I’m known as “Mr Curtis” even to my friends….I have a handlebar moustache…which seems to prompt people to such formality!”
The company was born five months ago and has gained popularity very quickly. Mr Curtis is constantly designing new pieces for his Etsy shop, with new designs being added every couple of weeks. He is also planning on expanding his product range beyond jewellery to include ceramics, t-shirts, tea towels and other items.
Traditional Rose Tattoo Necklace and Earring Set – £12.23 – Available here
“Everything Vintage and Kitsch is popular just now. Lots of people are asking for afternoon tea, cup cake and vintage-inspired designs. This seems to be the case in fashion and home interiors too so the jewellery appeals to a broad range of people even though it’s tattoo inspired.”
I love the styling of his packaging too, I think the jewellery would make a wonderful gift for a friend (or for me it’s my birthday next month!)
I tried out this fabulous teapot design necklace, which I absolutely love and will be wearing constantly. I was really impressed with the quality and the beautiful colours, and I love the contemporary feel it gives to vintage inspired outfits.
I love the tea-pot necklace against my original vintage jewellery
And it goes perfectly with my new dress
Mr Curtis is kindly offering my readers a 10% discount on all products in his Etsy store just use the code “FRILLS” at the checkout.
And even better I am also giving away a beautiful set of jewellery from the Mr Curtis Designs range. You could win this fabulous tea cup earring and necklace set…
The giveaway ends at midnight on the 15th November. The giveaway is open internationally.
Good Luck!!! Look out for more Mr Curtis Designs jewellery in future outfit posts.

These designs are lovely! I really like the tattoo-inspired feel that the designer has decided on, it’s girly but with an edge.

Oh my goodness, I would soooo love to win one of these thoroughly awesome tattoo art necklaces. They’re just the hit of ink my life needs right now. Pretty, classic, super stylish and able to be seen atop clothing, to boot!
Thank you both very much for holding this stellar giveaway.
