The Laura Lee Rocks Mixtape - July 2017

 

The Laura Lee Rocks Mixtape

"What should we listen to next?" is probably one of the most asked questions around here. We just can't work in silence, we need something to sing (and dance) along to while we go about our day.

So we created a playlist based on what we do best: rocks. Diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, tourmalines... We love them all, so we are paying them a small tribute. You can find it on Spotify and at the bottom of this page also.

Here are our picks:

'Diamonds are a girl's best friend' by Marilyn Monroe - chosen by Laura (Boss Lady) 

'Ruby Tuesday' by The Rolling Stones - chosen by Aimée (Head of the Making of all the Lovely Things)

'Diamante (English version) by Zucchero - chosen by Elisa (Social Media Manager via Italy)

'Under Pressure' by Queen & David Bowie - chosen by Darja (Wholesale Manager and Cat Lady)

'Diamonds' by Rihanna - chosen by Rea (Retail Customer Service Queen)

'Material girl' by Madonna - chosen by Agostina (Studio Manager and Chief DJ)

'Diamonds in the soles of her shoes' by Paul Simon - chosen by Clara (Workshop Assistant and Champion Hula Hooper)

'Ruby baby' by The Drifters - chosen by Nicky (PR Manager and Fabulous Baker)

'Diamond Lil' by David Bromberg - chosen by Johnny (Bookeeper extraordinaire)

'Ruby' by Kaiser Chiefs - chosen by Rachel (Boutique Assistant and Mum of Baby Layla)

  'Diamonds and Pearls' by Prince - chosen by Sharlene (Boss Queen of Retail)

 

We hope you enjoy listening to this playlist as much as we do! What is your favourite stone? Let us know.

The Chakra Collection - now available to buy!

We're so pleased to announce that our new collection is now available to buy online & in our Covent Garden boutique.

The Chakra collection, carefully designed by Laura Lee, has been crafted with 18ct Gold, 9ct Gold, Diamonds & a rainbow of semi-precious jewels, including Sapphire, Ruby & Emerald.

Click here to view the new collection and take a peek below; we've included a brief run down of the qualities of each Chakra so you know which to choose.

From root to crown - to be here, to feel, to act, to love, to speak and to know, pick one (or more!) that really resonates with you and wear everywhere you go. They can serve as a reminder to stay grounded and to strive for and to ultimately, reach your full potential. 

Additionally, Laura has created a series of necklaces inspired by the beauty of the written Sanskrit language; crafted with rustic diamonds and 9ct gold, each depicts the Sanskrit word for each of the seven energy centres.

Crown Chakra

The Sanskrit word for chakra translates as “thousand petalled” and is associated with the topmost chakra in the subtle body. This chakra is considered to be the highest spiritual centre and when balanced we can achieve a state of pure consciousness, spiritual awareness and understanding.

Third Eye Chakra

This chakra is the centre of subtle energy and is said to reside between the eyebrows and is symbolised by a lotus and two petals. The third eye is all about intuition - when it’s balanced, you feel perceptive and intuitive, with an imaginative mind and open to visualisation.

Throat Chakra

The throat acts as a ‘pressure valve’ and allows the energy from the other chakras to flow – when balanced you are able to communicate your thoughts and feelings clearly, as well as a being a good listener. This chakra is represented by a lotus flower with sixteen petals and the colour blue.

Heart Chakra

The heart is the chakra regulating our interaction with the world around us – when it’s balanced we feel relaxed and peaceful, as well as loving and empathetic, and is thought of as the centre of our psychic energy as it resides next to the heart. It’s colour is green and its symbol a twelve petal lotus flower.

Solar plexus Chakra

The solar plexus the place in the subtle body where all your energy is distributed, when it’s balanced you feel powerful inner strength and a confidence to face challenges, and its symbolised as a lotus flower of ten petals and the colour yellow.

Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is where all the energy of pleasure flows – when this chakra is balanced you feel flexible both in body and mind, as well as being able to enjoy life and within healthy boundaries you will feel able to give and receive love to those around you.

Root Chakra

As this chakra is at the base of the subtle body it is where we need to focus in order to release the flow of energy from here along the spine all the way up to the crown, in order to realise our full potential. When the root is in balance you feel grounded, safe, and calm. This chakra is traditionally symbolised by a four petaled lotus and the colour red.
