Top Drawer Favourite Finds

by Catherine Cole | January 20, 2015 | 0 Comments

We love meeting other exhibitors and discovering exciting new products when we exhibit at trade shows. We are sharing the love this week with our favourite finds from Top Drawer including gorgeous stationery, homeware, pet accessories and children's items.


Chase and Wonder - www.chaseandwonder.com


Chase and Wonder create unique, vintage inspired animal illustrations which we love. Their growing collection features wrapping paper, prints, cards and gifts and also includes printed textiles with cushions and pouches. At And Mary we have been enjoying using their collection of bold wrapping papers, printed in Britain on lovely thick paper, which makes gift wrapping feel (and look!) extra special.


Amelia Lane Paper - www.amelialanepaper.com.au


We are always won over by anything pineapple or flamingo related.. and the lovely Chanel from Amelia Lane Paper features both our favourites in her gorgeous stationery collection! The Sydney based designer creates beautiful illustrations which are available as art prints, cards and notepads and would make a fun and fresh addition to any home or stationery collection.


 Pioneros - www.pioneros.co.uk


Family business Pioneros hand craft their leather items in Argentina, with their accessory collection featuring designs for humans and animals. The bold colours on these collars, leads and belts really make the products stand out from other pet accessories. We have treated Elvis, Edith, Bob and Marley to collar updates for the new season.. and they have been wearing them with pride ever since!


Goodnight Light - www.goodnightlight.fr


We love these kitsch pineapple lamps by designer Eva from Goodnight Light. These fun lamps are available in a range of unique pastel shades and add a soft warm glow to any room. We love that they would look equally as cute in a kid's room as they would look as a statement piece in a stylish interior.


Wild & Soft - www.wildandsoft.com


Wild and Soft are a Belgian company who make gorgeously soft plush animal heads to be enjoyed by adults and children. We loved the lion head so much that we now have one to give to a very special little someone in our family!


We hope you have enjoyed our favourites from Top Drawer.. hopefully we will have lots more lovely designers and products to share on our return from Paris!


With love And Mary

Update Your Wardrobe This New Year With And Mary

by Catherine Cole | January 14, 2015 | 0 Comments

During January, with the Christmas jumpers packed away and the days still cold, it can be hard to feel inspired with your Winter wardrobe. Statement accessories are the perfect way of adding a stylish addition to your look without having to invest in a whole new wardrobe. Our leather collection, made from the softest Italian leather and featuring unique printed linings, will add a luxurious update to your favourite Winter coat. With many of us making New Years resolutions to be more daring with our style choices or to wear more colour, read our guide to updating your wardrobe for 2015.



You can still embrace a colourful look in your style during Winter, even if the skies are grey. Our bold and bright accessories will brighten your mood and have you dreaming of sunnier climes. Our hare cut out bag and matching purse are available in a beautiful burnt orange leather which is the perfect contrasting accessory to a staple black or grey coat. Add a colourful canine companion to your wardrobe with our dachshund or bulldog cut out purses. If you prefer countryside critters then opt for our orange fox or apple green bee cut out purse. If you are only feeling a little daring, our contrast panel bag is perfect for adding a dash of colour, with the aubergine and orange panels providing a great balance of soft shades with a colour pop.



Our seasonal shades will make a gleaming statement with our unique gold animal cut out designs. Our stag cut out purse and hare cut out bag in soft chocolate leather will add a touch of woodland warmth to your outfit. If you want to add a subtle touch of colour then our Italian leather cut out purses are available in beautiful rich shades. Choose from our horse in teal, aubergine bees or vanilla hare designs. Our foldover bag with classic chain strap is a smart and timeless addition to any wardrobe and is the perfect size for holding all of your everyday essentials.



One of the major trends this season is Winter pastels, and with more months of frosty days to come, why not let your style be inspired by the ice cold temperatures. Invest in your style for the rest of the year- these sorbet shades will take you right through Spring and Summer. Our contrast panel bag would sit pretty with white or cream knitwear, and with a choice of powder pink or mint, you will find a matching purse to complete the look in our collection too. With girly styles including our swallow and butterfly cut out purses, you can add a feminine look to any outfit. If you prefer to toughen up your pastels, our bulldog cut out purses will be the perfect piece.


Are you now feeling inspired for the year ahead? Enter our giveaway on Facebook to be in with a chance of winning a purse of your choice from our collection. All you have to do is visit Facebook.com/andmaryjewellery and comment on our image with your favourite leather trend.

Marrakech Trip

by Catherine Cole | January 06, 2015 | 0 Comments

In December Alison headed off for some Winter sun in Marrakech. The markets and souks are always full of inspiring textiles, prints, colours and beautiful objects. We thought that we would share a few pictures from her trip including our new hand painted porcelain blue tit necklace- an exciting addition to our jewellery range along with our Italian leather horse cut out purse in a new colour. With Spring around the corner we can't wait to share our new SS15 Collection soon!

With love And Mary
