Introducing a new chapter to The Journal that is very close to our hearts. A series of imagery & interviews with the people most special to us and those that have influenced our journey with Mountain & Moon in the greatest ways possible. Our family & loved ones provide countless support, advice and inspiration, and we would not be who we are today without them. Essentially, this is an ode to those who we adore, and we hope you love to delve deeper with us into our lives and the stories of those who have helped shaped MM alongside us from the beginning.
We are so excited to introduce you to Ashton's nanna, Angela Cameron. Nanna Angela has the most amazing life story that has shaped her into the woman she is today. Born in Hyderabad India into the Royal family of the Parvarish Bagh, Angela carries her culture and heritage with pride. She is definitely known as the most elegant woman in the Cameron family with a royal Indian flare that is all her own.
Her family is her main focus in life, forever feeding, loving and worrying about all her children and grandchildren. Her second loves in life are church and cooking, and when she does cook there is always enough food to feed a small village. You can never leave her house with an empty belly, it's seriously not allowed! Angela can never say no to a special occasion, she adores a party! She loves being surrounded by people and has always been a true social butterfly. She lives for a reason to dress up in her favourite saris and get her glitz and glam on. Most evident in our photoshoot with her!
Ashton photographed and interviewed nanna in her cute little home and thriving garden on a warm sunny morning in March. We had all of the Indian snacks and sweets and then a good gossip session with the rest of the women in the family. Angela we love you and think you are simply amazing! Thankyou for dressing up for us and making our jewels look so chic and stylish. We can only hope to grow old as gracefully and beautifully as you in the future.
Angela wears the Palais Earrings, the Gloria Earrings, Roxanne Chain and Rachael Necklace.
You can head to our IGTV @mountainandmoon to explore the video interview with Angela discussing her love for and connection to jewellery and dressing up and how jewels make her feel inside and out.
