Richardson and Richardson
Jewellery, Cards and Party Pieces
YALC was an amazing time for me. It was the first time of catching up with Gem, my person, in ages. I dressed to impress (myself), having spent the last few months in a stupor I finally had a reason to pull out all the stops. That included wearing one of my favourite possessions; a Richardson and Richardson necklace.
The amount of comments I got about the item was overwhelming. I informed people that they had a stall downstairs, but when I ventured downstairs I realised how hard it would be to find. I wish I’d had a handful of cards to give to the curious people.
As their website says, they are a mother and daughter team from the heart of Kent. If you want to meet them in person, they have a stall at Greenwich market on Sundays and have a selection of their pieces. I own four myself and I’ve bought many as gifts.
If you can’t get to Greenwich, or don’t want to wait till the next Con you are in luck. R&R have a shop on Etsy with their extensive collection; just find the link on the webpage. Don’t see anything you want (crazy person), or you just want something specific for an event; drop them a line and they will see what they can do.
About the Jewellery
The jewellery is created from laser cut coloured Perspex and ply and with prices starting at £6.95 there’s something for everyone; especially the book geek in everyone.
They come beautifully boxed, ready for giving as a gift. What I love is that they cover a wide range of geeky fandoms; from new (Stranger Things) to the classic (Labyrinth). The only problem you’re going to have, is which one you’re going to by first.
