Emma Barnes created Wild Fawn in January 2015 when her love for making and drawing transformed into the love of working with silver and gold to make timeless jewellery that can be enjoyed every day. Each piece of jewellery is made by hand in her London studio, which is important to Emma because it means that there has been no exploitation of workers or unnecessary C02 emissions from transport to bring you Wild Fawn Jewellery.
IS INSTAGRAM A WASTE OF TIME?
Hands up if you waste time on Instagram?
I know I do. It’s so easily done because Instagram is so alluring. If I’m not careful, with one trip I find myself tumbling down a rabbit hole, cartwheeling through The Land of Unattainable until I am completely disorientated. What feels like days later I finally come up for air with little more to show for my expedition than stinging eyeballs and a sinking feeling that my life doesn’t quite measure up.
So how can we avoid this dizzying drain on our precious time, get a grip of Instagram, and make sure the time we do spend on the platform is purposeful and rewarding for our businesses?
Actually it’s quite simple. As is usually the case with marketing, we need to be clear about why. Why are you using Instagram for your business and what are you hoping to achieve? Here’s my checklist of the top three questions to ask yourself before you hit that Insta icon.

VIBRANT - CELEBRATION - LUSH - FIESTA - RIOT OF COLOUR - EXOTIC
Christmas goes tropical, bringing a celebratory, party atmosphere to the festive season with birds of paradise and lush florals. Rich jewel tones are key, with shades of blue forming the basis of the palette. Canary yellow, coral and bright aqua add a contrasting pop, while black is used for definition. Surfaces are subtly metalicised to add interest and a luxe edge.
Decorations go bold, as exotic fruits and parrot baubles complete with feathers give Christmas trees a tropical rainforest twist. Oversized fold out paper fans create a colourful statement, with palm tree shapes taking the trend to the next level.
Adding an element of fun, festive piñatas in the shape of cacti are the perfect after dinner amusement for kids. Christmas cards embrace the playful carnival mood.
TRADITION - SENTIMENTAL - FRESH FOLIAGE - HOMESPUN - CHARMING
Looking to the Christmases of the past, nostalgia is key. Mismatched tableware and twee touches create a rustic country mood, while floral blooms bring the outside in. The traditional festive palette of red and green is modernized with the addition of blossom pink and a ceramic blue. Soft basil and olive green add freshness against a background of antique cream.
Table settings combine vintage-style cut glass, chintzy prints and hints of elegant gold to create an eclectic, thrown together feel. Pink-hued florals used on napkins and plates add a contemporary touch.
Traditional ceramic baubles decorate the tree, using classic illustrated motifs such as holly and festive wreathes, while decorated gingerbread and confectionary provide a kitsch twist.
UNCONVENTIONAL - FIERCE - EMBRACING DIFFERENCE - ECCENTRIC
Festive goodwill is given a 21st Century update as we embrace love and friendship and celebrate diversity, uniqueness, glamour and eccentricity.
Sequins and glitter reign, covering every surface with a metallic shine. All the colours of the spectrum are key for creating a bold statement, with rainbow brights and mirrored finishes adding to the outlandish, party mood
The true meaning of Christmas is spread through messages of love, rainbows and heart motifs. Greetings cards send contemporary festive cheer with eye catching graphics and slogans.
Decorations have metallic and sequined finishes, bordering on the edge of bad taste. Fashion accessories and beauty channel the over-the-top mood through glitter and plenty of pink.
