Hippies drumming on Benniras, sunsets at Es Vedra, sharing tapas and sangria, out until the sun comes up.....all seem just faraway memories now. Reality hits as soon as you get back on the plane onto the queue at passport control at Stanstead and then just to put you completely back into the swing of things the first morning of back on the tube and walking to work. I've promised myself I'm going to just keep a little bit of it in me and that will be my stall on Saturday.
Its all well and good including something I love on my Saturday afternoons my perfect life would be to follow in the footsteps on Jade Jagger. Born in Paris with all the perks of a rock star dad maybe its naturally in you to be able to gain a reputation as an artist, creative director and visionary jeweller? and if its not naturally in you, your thrown into that arty life, Andy Warhol 'I love Mick and Bianca, but Jade's more my speed. I taught her how to color and she showed me how to play monopoly. she was four and I was fouty-four.'
It was her freewheeling entrepreneurial spirit that led her to set up Jade Inc, applying a colourful, bohemian aesthetic to one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces, and of course she has one of her shops......in Ibiza. Here is all of it.
