NEW STYLE :: Who actually is the Patron Saint of Animals!?
June 19, 20182 min read
Our latest collection SANTA CHIARA welcomes a collection of 5 legendary Patron Saints from well before our time... We don't hear too much about them in today's world but these Saints are kind of like the Lady Gaga of 2017, Beyonce of 2018 or Angelina Jolie of 2015?... You get my drift.
We wanted to share with you a little more on why these guys rock and, why they are part of our new SANTA CHIARA collection. Today, we shed a little light on the legend St. Francis of Assisi who is the patron saint of animals & environment (Well well well, 2 of our favourite things eh, must have been quite the guy!)
After a wild youth and a short stint as a soldier, St Francis gave up his family’s wealth and decided to dedicate his life to poverty, humility, obedience, patience, and compassion. St. Francis cared for the poor and sick, he spoke to the animals, and treated all creatures as brothers and sisters – sounds like our kinda guy!
Today, over 3 million people each and every year make a pilgrimage to the tomb of St. Francis in Italy, proving that he is indeed one of the most popular and beloved saints of all time (Dur, Animals & the Environment…, he’s kind of our favourite too). Wear our St Assisi Pendant made entirely from recycled Sterling Silver (Yep, Assisi would be proud of our dedication to keep the environment clean) and match it with one of our other necklaces that are designed to layer with their different chain lengths.

There’s a lot of chat out there about jewellery and we wanted to debunk a few of the myths that you may have heard over the years. From the history of Pearls to the truth about Solid Gold. Here are 8 Jewellery Myths debunked - So you can sleep easy (and let your Aunty know the real deal over your next family dinner) sharing the real facts about tarnishing, Gold, pearls and much more.
If you're a travel-lover like us (dur - who isn't), then there's a high chance you are already following Brodie from @locationlost over on instagram where she shares her life on the road, living out of her **super stylin** van with her partner Nick & cute pooch Quinn. Based in Western Australia, Brodie & Nick share their incredible adventures, drool-worthy landscapes they get to experience in Aus and share honest conversations about a life lived on the road. It's not all cute shots (and cute outfits)!
Nothing quite beats a delicious Soba Noodle Salad. They're often rare to find out and about but when you find one, with the perfect dressing - Oooh wee it's a jolly good feeling, one you want to bottle up & come back to meal after meal. And so with the emphasis on food & sharing around Christmas, I wanted to do exactly that. Share one of my favourite Soba Noodle Salad recipes so that you too, can relish in these flavours & treat your tastebuds (and others!) this festive season.
