MTV Movie Awards 2016 - The Red Carpet

Hi everyone,

Please bear with me with this blog post as reviewing fashion and the Red Carpet is something completely new to me, but I feel that with my jewellery designs and the fact I look at celebrities and designers for inspiration and colour palettes I felt it would be good to give it a go! So here we go:

The Ladies

Photos from Elle, US Magazine, Vanity Fair, E Online & Huffington Post.

1. Anna Kendrick - I love how understated his look is, yet Anna still looks like a A-List celebrity. The gold details on the dress matches the gold lines on the handbag and earrings.

2. Ashley Rickards - I picked this outfit because it was one of very few I could see myself wearing (ask my friends and they will agree I'm not a dress wearer!). I love Ashley's hair swept back accentuating her cheek bones. A delicate necklace, bracelet and earrings add to the outfit but don't take away for the glitz of Ashley's top. That handbag is to die for! I need it in my life! :)

The adventure begins....

Hi and welcome to Behind Door Thirty One!

Hello! I'm Emma and Behind Door Thirty One is my jewellery business specialising in bespoke pieces made with genuine gemstones. I have only been making jewellery for a short time but it's got me hooked and I am loving the creativity of making different pieces and seeing what I can come up with.

I started making jewellery as a way to alleviate the stress from my 9-5 (if I'm lucky) day job. It was a way of relaxing and letting my mind drift away from the challenges of the day. Very quickly, making jewellery took over my thoughts from what design to try next to what gemstones would work well together. I quickly turned into a 'gem geek' and I spend a lot of time researching the gemstones I buy.

I hope that this blog will be a place for me to show you what I have been up to with my adventures in jewellery, talk about the history and facts about gemstones I love to use in my creations & share hints and tips I pick up along the way!

The jewellery I create will be for sale, please check out my Facebook and Etsy pages for more details.

I am looking forward to sharing this adventure with you!

Thanks for stopping by!
