When Jewellery Meets Art..

Hey yalll,

Firstly I am so embarrassed! I’ve been neglecting you guys for the longest with my blog posts, it’s been ages since we’ve had a little chinwag about what we’ve been up to! I wanna start off by just thanking everyone who has read my blog posts so far, shared and supported! if this is your first time being here, hey babeeeee! *waves*

November was such a busy but amazing month, I launched a new website with over 20 new products, started exhibiting again and ended on a high note with a project that ive wanted to do for ages! I’ve always thought jewellery reminded me of art, it’s a form of expression and you are the canvas, so with our shoot I wanted to portray bright colours with our beautiful jewellery.

I was so nervous planning this shoot because this is right out of my comfort zone, however I knew nothing great comes from the comfort zone so I ran with the idea. Its crazy how the industry works, you start with a idea/vision of what you want to create and then you plan how your going to execute the vision with moodboards etc and then you gotta find the right team to excute but they gotta they gotta believe in your idea just as much as you do! You then create magic as a team!

In this blog Ive included a couple sneak peak BTS shots of what went down! Our stunning model Apryl caught in action taking creative direction from Shanice Pearson. I decided to go for bright tropical colours for Apryl because for some reason yellows and oranges always remind me of sitting on a island sipping on a sex on the beach cocktail lmao and as winter is approaching in London I thought it was only right! 🙂

Jewellery piece: Jewelled fringe tassle earrings – Shop here

 

I opted for body paint for this shoot  literally because it’s different and its something I hadn’t used in shoots before! We’ve done gold flakes in previous shoots but I thought it would be a nice touch to what I was trying to create and it worked really well as it complimented the petals and eye makeup that each model was wearing! Who said trying something new was scary lmao! ??

I honestly can’t wait for you guys to see the final images when they come out! Your going to LOVE THEM! so keep an eye out 😉

NJ Girl Boss Campaign for International Women’s Day March 2017

Hey guyss..

Mama’s finally home 2+ years later, I’m back again.  I can’t believe how long I’ve left it, I have actually missed writing! Trust me I wont be doing a disappearing act anytime soon! We’re only 3 months into the year and there’s been an unlimited amount of growth, change and happiness. I cant wait to share what  Neicey’s Jewels has been up to and the projects we’ve been working on.

In celebration of international women’s day 2017,  for the month of March I wanted to direct something out of my comfort zone but also something to celebrate all the hard working women that I know. I decided to create a campaign which consisted of video interviews and a photo shoot to celebrate 4 influential business women who are killing the industry right now. Of course I had to incorporate Neicey’s Jewels by creating a fashion look book that shows different outfits can be worn with our jewellery! Guys it was SICKKKKK, seeing my dreams come true only motivates me to do so much more.

When directing a shoot I start by creating a mood board. For those who don’t know, a mood board is a type o collage consisting of images, text, and samples of objects in a composition. I had a vision of the concept I wanted to create: got a group of business women together that worked both BTS and on camera and created something out the box  – I even got involved! I try to stick within my mood board and then get as creative as possible with it and remember to always have fun. I’ve only started directing shoots since Feb and its actually hard work, your literally trying to do 101 things at once but once its all said and done you get this overwhelmed feeling of achievement, getting that feeling is amazing so from now on add director to my list of jobs 😉 LOL

IMG_1161.jpg

When planning this shoot I decided I wanted a variety of female bosses that came from different industries, that were skilled in different areas. We had an author, a photographer, an entrepreneur in the fashion industry and an actress. We also had an amazing team of women that worked BTS who was incredible all throughout mua’s, stylist, videographers and photographer. These were all ladies I hadn’t worked with before but saw how they’ve progressed on their journey though social media so I thought why not direct a female boss campaign with a female team which celebrates women after all it is women’s day right!

Each week we celebrated a different female and showed our viewers the life of each entrepreneur. Throughout the week we gave our viewers a background of what they specialise in, how to contact them and documenting their journey throughout the years. We also directed a mini interview with each female so they could give some advice to other people who may want to work in their field and how they could go about starting their journey.

Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.

I promised myself  that this year I plan to stay out my comfort zone so working with a large team who were full of positivity and good vibes was literally a bonus and I had such a good time. The females bosses were so appreciative to the fact that were the ones being celebrated for their achievements which warmed my heart. I wanted to stop the stereotype that most people have of females not being able to work together and create something epic and WE did exactly that! All the social media links for the team are listed below! Look them up and book them they are so dope!

Ready, Set, GO!!

Ever felt like your moving fast on a road to nowhere? or felt like your at a stand still that you’ve been stuck on for so long? Maybe you’ve got so comfortable in the position you are in today and don’t know how to get out of a busy routine?

That stern quick journey on a road to nowhere can make you feel like you’ve literally crashed and burned. I would describe this feeling as putting in so much blood, sweat and tears into something but it’s almost never noticed.

It’s perfectly normal to get comfortable in your everyday lifestyle. You may not be where you would love to be at this point in time but your okay with that because just like me, you hate change..

Motivation can come in many different forms of signs.. You may see an inspirational quote and think yep I needed that sign or even a relative has given you that kick ass advice and made you think man I need to get back to work.. Well erm?

“What are you waiting for?”

Believe it or not I needed the motivation to get back into writing blogs for you guys but the thought of helping someone or motivating them brought me here.. “God blesses you so your able to bless others” so here I am.. but what could you do to help someone or kick them into beast mode?

I’m learning that If you have a positive can do attitude you will then see results. If you automatically have a ‘I cant be bothered’ attitude your brain will automatically go into melt down mode and all that’s going to do is push you a thousand steps back!

Remember ROME WASNT BUILT IN A DAY! It takes time and perseverance, remember you will succeed PERIOD!

Love always

Heya Beauties, Im back..

Hey guys..

Its been so longggggg! I am so sorry for my absence! Ive been trying to juggle personal life, university and the buiness some would say I am not doing a good job juggling all three lmao!

Ive missed writing so much it was always very therapeutic for me so I am so happy to be back…so much has happened and is yet to happen.. I cant wait to fill you guys in..

I haven’t got an actual straight forward explanation as to why I’ve been MIA.. just that recently ive been getting to know myself all over again from improving my confidence to just laughing more and enjoying life. Im the type of person that feels if your mind, body and spirit isnt right then it could hinder you in all aspects of your life.

Im not a huge christian but I do beleive in God and I have been getting closer to him! I believe prayer is key. Every so often when my heart feels heavy or I feel anxious I release all that energy and I feel great afterwards. Recently I visited my mothers church and the word I had recieved was AMAZING! Guys when I tell you all the things the pastor was saying it was like he was he’s reading my mind!!

Im learning God can take you on to many cross roads and he is full of changes therefore whatever you may be struggling with for e.g. university, university etc.. your current situation isnt your final destination so KEEP GOING! THERE IS AN END INSIGHT! What we tend to do is get comfortable too quickly and get complacent with the situation we are put in, even if we hate it! Just remember your blessing is coming! BELIEVE AND TRUST!

In regards to the business, its doing well minus the hurdles, the speeed bumps and lifes spontatenous ways lol! I havent been lazy these past months I promise, Ive been planning and plotting my next step! What I can reveal now is that we have some new products online (I shall leave the link to my website down below) buttttt we will be introducing some SECRET collections for the new year which I am so pumped for.. So dont sleep on me just yet, I have a few things in store for you guys!

Last but not least, I would love to connect with more of my readers and possibly do some collaborations with yall who have businesses.. If you need advice on confidence issues or you have a query drop me an email: info@neiceys-jewels.com with a subject line and I will reply straight away!

Naturally beautiful you are..

”you don’t need to wear all that make-up”

“your eyebrows are too sharp”

”Is this foundation even my skin tone”

All these questions went around in her head as she painted on her Estée Lauder double wear foundation and concealed under her eyes..

Females are so caught up in what foundation to buy next, how to contour correctly and what makeup brush to use for the daily bronzer.

When did natural beauty become so scary, to the thought that some  females can’t even walk 10 mins to the corner shop without plastering their face..I’ve always said I love a bit of foundation and a good eyebrow but I do not need to wear makeup 247 to get abit of attention, a few Twitter favourites and retweets and to feel beautiful!

Now.. I’m not slating women that wear makeup at all because everyone is entitled to there own opinion and have different perceptions of what makes them feel ‘beautiful’ but what I am saying is dig a little deeper.. 

Your natural beauty makes you unique, your beautiful flaws make you who you are as a person and your personality is the stamp you leave people with at the end.

Yes. a pretty face will no doubt get you the attention and it will probably keep people interested that little longer BUT let me tell you this for free.. If all you have to offer is a pretty face and shxt personality there is no hope at all! 

I’ve witnessed so many ‘pretty’ females treat other girls so mean because they THINK they look better then them so it’s okay..

Wait since when did you getting 120 likes on Instagram because your ‘caked up’ mean you were better than everyone else?😆

Girls start embracing yourselves, your being.. your realness.. It’s not everyday  cover up your inperfections but see how you last with ‘no makeup’ sometimes.. Accept the compliments when your face isn’t ‘beat’ .. Walk around with your head high knowing your natural beauty is what makes you beautiful..

Personally I would go a month without wearing makeup then just switch it up and beat this face girlll lol that’s just me🙋🏽.. but that’s the beauty of it.. try to switch it up.. feel confident with or without..

I hear a lot of females saying I wear makeup to feel good about myself, to look good constantly and to get people’s attention so let me ask you something if your constantly wearing makeup and ‘shutting down’ when it comes to big events in a women’s life for e.g. 21st birthday, prom, graduation and your wedding day..you will be looking so casj because you would of got so used to that ‘turn up’ look no? 😧

Females get with it, that natural glow is winning this summer.. Stop focusing on looking like an average girl and be different.. Stand out. Remember your great with or without those things.. 😏☺️

Thank you for reading this post..❤️

Love always, Neicey xo

Procrastination is a MOTHER!

When I was younger I would tell myself I would work my ass off for anything that I felt passionate about. No matter how hard it got or how many battles I would have to overcome I told myself I would do it no questions asked because I was a solider and I was always told the saying  God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers.

I would always keep that in the back of my mind so if things got tough I would keep going because I was a fighter, an overcomer… a warrior.

As you get older we all face many responsibilities whether that be working a full time job to earn that paper or struggling to attend lecture because you know you need that 1st at the end or some may even be in my situation running a full time business, working part time (booo! I hate it!) and attending university. Taking all that into consideration, when your in a long term committed relationship, wanting to spend time with family and socialise with your girlies it can sometimes get too much and you will quickly find yourself drowning, Being 21 I can honestly say my patience has been tested the most this year, the more activities I involve myself in the less motivated I get to actually get to the finishing line (wherever that is).

Everyone wants to be great, we all want to be successful but some are willing to work harder than others. I am literally a workaholic and my close ones know I love working hard and accomplishing goals. The fear of being ‘bummy’ and being the average ‘South East Female’ frightens me because I am definitely not a statistic so I don’t see why I shouldn’t push myself to reach my full potential..

My personality is often labelled as motivated, outgoing, and driven to succeed by strangers, I love that people see all those positive aspects and make a judgement.. to be honest I have flaws like everyone else and as time goes by I still have a long way to go 💪🏽💅🏽

People keep telling me my mind works different to others and that my aura is something unique and I never believed it once.. Recently I’m starting to understand my mind processes things really quickly at once.. it used to feel like I was rushing the way I did things but I realised everyone’s different and they have their own individual positives and negatives about them..

I learned to adapt, if I didn’t I would find it hard to survive. I didn’t wanna end up going nowhere fast so I put all my energy into present which is building Neicey’s Jewels, studying and my job..

The fear of being average will forever scare me but I reckon it also keeps me on my toes to not fall behind on my responsibilities, I’ve got to go hard, as they say but also reward my self when I achieve one of my goals. As time’s gone by how I deal with daily tasks is I’ve got the attitude ”ill do it tomorrow” the fact that my brain has got comfortable knowing I will do it, I put off till last minute which is a MOTHER!

I am starting to train myself in doing things as they come, when you leave things till the last minute you usually forget you had to do it and move onto something else or you don’t end up doing it at all because it seems ‘long’ at the time’

I would also suggest you have friends that can uplift you and remind you that there is important moves to make rather then getting involved in necessary rubbish that has little or no relevance to you. My sisters will actually ask me ‘Shanice how’s Neicey’s Jewels’ and I would have to give them a break down of what I’ve been doing within the company and what still needs to be done.

Procrastination will always be a killer, expect people to sleep on you if they know you never get the job done. Whether that be working hard in university, at your job or your own business don’t ever put off what can be done now!

Keep going.. If your passionate about something you will not stop fighting until the end 👊🏽..
Thank you for reading my blog post guys x

Love always, Neicey x

Real Recognise Real

Hey yall,

Hope everyone’s having a productive Monday and your working your butts off towards success 💪🏽

Yass Neicey has written another post for you lovely beings!! 👑😍.. see how much time I’m investing into writing.. I’m quite proud of myself ☺️😋.. Anyhu.. 

This particular post is literally some of my thoughts just written down and the things I mention have been playing on my mind so I thought let me share it with you ☺️😏


Do you feel like you don’t fit into a particular group of friends?

or your mind doesn’t function like others which differentiates you from the rest ?

Maybe your too focused on achieving greatness you keep yourself to yourself?

Growing up I often felt like I needed to be apart of a friendship group, it didn’t matter who or why but it was the only way I felt like I belonged somewhere. I found myself hiding behind other people’s personalities so the attention wasn’t drawn necessarily on my lack of self confidence.. Being an adult now has made so much things clearer and I felt like I need to share this with you all…

As of recent (and when I say recent I meant this year lol) I’ve loved the idea of being my own best friend.. the little things excite me these days e.g. going shopping ALONE, taking myself out to dinner ALONE.. even to the point of me keeping some of my thoughts to myself.. Through this process I’ve found out so many amazing things about myself that for years I missed out on.. When your caught up in a ongoing cycle you never realise how much time is being wasted on things that have no relevance to you whatsoever.. Now hollll on wait a minute.. be prepared for people to call you weak or even weird because you prefer your own company rather then being caught up in the bs but remember everyone has their own individual mindset so you need to take care of yours boo ✔️😏

My advice to you:

  • Never get so caught up in the world that you forget yourself.. Take care of yourself always!
  • Don’t be so easily influenced.. we all know right from wrong.. don’t just part take in stupid behaviours because your friends are doing it but be the odd one out.
  • Always know where your going and what path you want to take rather then sharing the paths maybe your friends are currently taking.. 
  • Be great, be powerful and let your presence be felt.

It’s okay to make mistakes, we are all growing and learning.. My mama always says life doesn’t come with a handbook so instead of us all judging each other for what we think is wrong concentrate on bettering ourselves..

I hope this post helps and its gets you on the right path because how are you meant to know if you don’t get advice aye 😑

Remember‼️

Direct your energy into positivity.. and be bold whilst doing so 👑✨

 Keep an eye out this week.. We’ve got some big things happening in our business.. and we need all of your support and love..

What is Neicey’s Jewels?

So now the big question that everyone seems to be asking  What is Neicey’s Jewels? 

(no! we don’t just sell jewellery!!) That would be way too easy 😜

As a teenager I became a victim of bullying both mentally and physically. I also battled with self love and confidence all through my teenage years. (Mate I was a late bloomer! The ‘glow up’ didn’t start for me till I was like 19 boyyy!) ..I wasn’t the prettiest nor the smartest or even the loudest and it was like kids in school thought that was a weakness so they were willing to take full advantage of that.. 

As days went on, term after term I began rebelling.. getting sent out of classes just so I wasn’t laughed at in front of everyone because of my facial appearance. I even found myself mixing with the wrong crowd so I could seem cool (how stupid 😑 lol). 

I then went through my jewellery phase, I found my voice through my bold jewellery. 5 years on it’s become my trade mark and I’m still rocking my big gold hoops 😏


Growing up I always knew I wanted to be the greatest! I wanted to touch people’s lives but didn’t know how to go about it. In school I studied Business, I always had that entrepreneurial flair from early so I knew it wouldn’t be long till I started my own venture once I left school.

In 2014 I finally plucked up the courage and I did it! I got on a deadly roller coaster lool and haven’t looked back since! I started Neicey’s Jewels ✨

Neicey’s Jewels is a bespoke jewellery service which offers different product ranges for all women to ‘look powerful and feel powerful’ through fashion. Our main focal point is confidence. We are going to build  our queens back up one by one so we all walk hand in hand with pride and power.

 As a person I am still battling with confidence issues and Neicey’s Jewels is not only a business journey for me but also a spiritual one! I believe I am capable of helping other women to see the amazing things God’s already blessed them with and just bringing that shine out!  
One of the services that we offer is a jewellery platform for women who are bold, unique and see themselves as fashion forward individuals but are afraid to be themselves in todays society.

 In the near future we have some plans in the making! One of them being to offer seminars and workshops for our young queens and women who are battling with these issues. (that’s all I’m saying for now 🙊.. I’ve already said too much!)

One step at a time.. each life at a time 👣

 “Shanice found her voice through wearing bold statement jewellery and urges those who want to, to do the same”.
