‘I Believe In Me' is back for 2021. The message of the colourway is positivity, acceptance, resilience and shining through during difficult times. Facing struggles is a huge part of life, however the global Coronavirus pandemic has turned worlds upside down. The burdens brought by Coronavirus as well as the tragic news coverage can feel overwhelming. That’s why I decided we needed to be reminded of this mantra - ‘I Believe In Me’.
I’m big into self belief and the power of determination. Also the power in everyone to achieve especially when it feels like you can’t. The biggest barrier to things can often be self doubt and lingering voices. Confidence and anxiety feel like two sides of the same coin since both routed in a belief about how an action will unfold. Both are about how we perceive ourselves and our abilities. During these times, I think it is important to examine our state of mind and the things we say to others and ourselves. Are we encouraging each other to persist? Are we encouraging ourselves? We are all united during this period of great challenge and we should remind others that we believe in them.
‘I Believe In Me’ is a special colourway to celebrate all those daily achievements big or small. I took a few classic Sstutter designs and applied a rainbow to them. I chose a rainbow because it is seen by many as a symbol of hope. The rainbow is where the sunshine and the rain meet and shows us that, given time, pain will pass and that we will see better days. The variety of colours represent our emotions and feelings. It’s a reminder that there can be hope & fear, happiness & sadness, confidence & anxiety. They sit side by side like the many colours of the rainbow.
During a challenging time, it can be easy to lose sight of ourselves and to be doubtful. We can question our abilities and forget about the good we have done and the times we have triumphed. ‘I Believe In Me’ is a message to ourselves that we can be a beautiful mixture to emotions like colours of the rainbow. No matter how dark the sky is right now, sunshine will always follow the rain.

Supersonic is a collection of statement jewellery which explores the fantasy and thrill of air combat. Supersonic looks at the role of the heroes and villains in warfare and comic book culture. The collection surrounds a heroic pilot who possesses exceptional military skill, his fantastically customised F14 Tomcat and its complimentary array of explosive weapons. Supersonic also explores modern and provocative nose art depicting the fighters spirit and also the medals celebrating the exceptional Valour & Honour displayed in battle.
The F14 Tomcat is an iconic jet fighter famed for its design and impact. After the Vietnam war, the US Navy reviewed its needs under the VFX program and determined it needed a new class of aircraft - the 'Air Superiority Fighter'. The F14 Tomcat was the response - an extremely fast and manoeuvrable jet fighter which carried a wide range of high tech weapons. This interpretation of the F-14 sensationalises its shape and adds vivid colour to make it stand out and become a true super hero.
The F-14 is approximately 6.5” (165mm) x 4.3" (110mm).
The necklace is mounted on a curb chain and is approximately 14" (355mm) in length. Included is a detachable extension of 6" (150mm) giving a further option for styling.
Made from laser cut acrylic with plated chain and findings (nickel compliant to British and European standards).
This product is carefully presented inside a Sstutter gift box which has a foam interior.
Please take a look at our care page for advice on protecting the piece.
The F14 Tomcat is a part of the Supersonic collection.
