trinkets and tatoos

1. Straight hair, Iphone case society6 2. new trinkets for the RRL summer collection. 3. sleepy portraits. 4. new crystal pendants, 5. re-pierced nose. 6. New ram head ring. 7 my new leg piece.

I have been acquiring a few new trinkets over the last couple of weeks on my travels, oh and i actually brushed and straightened my hair...i know right? I am trying to catch up to share with you all what i have been upto, its proving to be hard to fit everything in. Even though I run RubyRaeLove ( which is a jewellery shop for all you new readers) I still can't stop myself from collecting little trinkets. I can't help myself. So my new organised jewellery box is fit to bursting. Note to self I must so more self control. You might be able to see my little blue bird tattoo in the top right picture, i only found this out the other day that blue bird tattoos are deemed to lucky, prosperity and happiness, (not sure if i actually believe that myself)  i've had the little beauty six years and i've only just discovered this how ignorant of me. Tattooing is something that I really want to get into after my little discussion with Ashleigh I am actually considering it as a future career path (I know its alot harder to get into then applying for a job). I think my dad would fear that i would end up doodling all over myself. I am feeling a far more creative career path beckoning then my current career.  After posting a little tattoo flash for my leg piece which you can see above, over on my instagram _ellamasters_ I have had around 8 tattoo requests how lovely of people wanting to share my creation on their body so if anyone else fancies anything buy me of a commission?! hehe . I just wanted to thank you all for your lovely words about my Paintings that i had created over Easter, so thank you.



  1. the new necklaces with the trinkets youve found look lovely - when will they be in your shop - cant wait to snap one up, theyre right up my street!

    i think a career as a tattoist would really suit you - you'd definately be in demand if your art work is anytihng to go buy anyway!

    xx :)

  2. omg i love that ram head ring! im an aries so it works so well haha..

  3. wow,that is a beautiful lady!!!(the tattoo:P) I'm starting with tattooing and my boyfriend is a tattoo artist so if you ever feel like a chat im at iamthetipsygypsy@gmail.com :)

  4. I love collecting trinkets! I have a phobia of birds, so could never get a tattoo, but I do think they look pretty. Just never get one on your hand because apparently it means you 'Did your time in jail..your bird' xxx

  5. I love the pendants they are totally my kind of thing! and that tattoo artwork is gorgeous!

  7. Being tattoist sounds so amazing. You already have such a big talent and I really think you would be great at it.
    P.S. If you become one I'll come to UK and get a tattoo from you :)

  8. Oooh, love these pictures! You would make such a good tattooist, though I would be really upset if RRL had to close down :(
