Hina's Apprentice

I am incredibly excited to present Haute Whimsy's newest sponsor, Hina's Apprentice! Time spent in this shop is a whimsical event that offers a story, not just merchandise.

"The current jewellery collection is inspired by a character named 'Captain Harami'. A courageous, roguish woman who took to the High Seas looking for adventure. These jewels are treasured souvenirs of her sojourns. Some pieces come with notes and excerpts of her story written on aged cotton rag paper."

Hina's Apprentice has recently been opened by Natalie, a Londoner with a degree in journalism and fine art. Her favourite artists include Frida Kahlo, Paulo Rego and Audrey Kawaski, and she admires designers such as fellow Brits John Galliano and Alexander McQueen (their designs make her gasp!)

Note: along with her beautiful jewelry are incredible fashion capes. I adore them and think we should all have one this winter! Also, Natalie's art is coming soon.

Now for some exciting news- an exclusive giveaway! To celebrate Hina's Apprentice, we are giving away this pair of "Fall Facade" earrings which have been inspired by autumnal colours of greens, copper and gold.


For a chance to own one of Hina's Apprentice's first designs, visit the shop and come back here with a comment about your favorites! Also, for an extra shot at winning this giveaway, repost via Facebook, Twitter or your blog and leave a separate comment with a link of proof. Have fun, and good luck! A winner will be chosen at random on October 20th.

*Our lucky winner is Amy!
