    Meet Our Independent Business Pick For March: Quirky Accessories Brand Taryn De Vere

    Supporting small brands is more important than ever, folks!

    With all non-essential retail storefronts now closed in the UK due to the coronavirus, supporting small businesses online is more important now than ever – and if their products can bring a bit of colour and lighthearted humour into the mix, then that's even better! Here's our top independently-owned business pick for March.

    Meet Taryn De Vere. Named after its founder and *possibly* the most colourful woman in Ireland, this unique jewellery and accessories brand produces beautifully quirky pieces that aren’t just a bit of fun – here’s what you need to know about them…

    1. They make bright and colourful jewellery pieces which you can wear to lift your mood – even if you're stuck at home most of the time right now!

    Known best for their larger-than-life statement earrings, they also make exquisite headpieces, pins, cufflinks, and so much more! It takes around three days to complete each piece, so you know a lot of love is going into making them!

    2. Their pieces are all handmade in Ireland using sustainable materials, which are upcycled where possible!

    Just LOOK at these rainbow earrings made from recycled straws! There's also a bunch of gorgeously unique studs and pins which are all made from recycled materials on their website here.

    3. The brand's founder Taryn recently offered on Twitter to send small gifts to anyone that is feeling sad or lonely while self isolating and TBH, I can’t think of a sweeter gesture.

    4. In keeping with her company's fun and uplifting nature, Taryn has been fighting the banality of social distancing by wearing ball gowns to supermarkets...

    The Lidl food shop: truly, the fashion highlight of everybody's week.

    5. ...and flapper dresses to the local post office.

    'Cause dressing up for mundane occasions is what we are all living for right now, amirite?!

    6. Taryn’s children help to design the pieces, and it’s the most wholesome thing in the world.
