Through the Eyes of Indy Parsons

November 30, 2023

Indy Parsons is an Irish author, recipe creator and lifestyle influencer. She has lived in Ireland all her life but her recipes are heavily influenced by her Japanese heritage and her love of travel. Her passion is creating indulgent and delicious plant-based recipes to share with those you love. Her app, The Little Green Spoon, includes hundreds of recipes from wholesome seasonal dinners to beautiful deserts, elevating everyday home cooking to new heights. Her cookbook, by the same name, debuted as an Irish best seller in 2016.

Growing up by the sea in Dublin, Indy now lives in Bray, Co. Wicklow with her husband, 4-year-old son, Teddy, and brand new baby, Penelope. Their home is a labour of love, a Victorian property that they have been restoring over the last few years. It’s evolved from bedsits to a gracious family home, allowing her to realise her love for all aspects of design. Her goal is to marry practicality and beauty, without compromising either. Her style embraces both contemporary and antique, high street and heirloom elements. She gathers inspiration from a variety of sources, including her online community with whom she shares her journey.

Read on for Indy’s insights into each piece.

LOT 132: AN IMPORTANT DIAMOND SINGLE-STONE RING

What a beautiful ring, this has such wow factor without being over the top. Whoever gets to call it their own is one lucky lady.

LOT 122: A DIAMOND THREE-STONE RING

This ring has quite a classic design, but it feels so special. It’s fit for a princess and makes me think of a fairy-tale ever after.

LOT 3: A DIAMOND FIVE-ROW ‘METRO’ RING, BY TIFFANY & CO., 2023

This ring called out to me as soon as I saw it and feels like such a steal. I love to stack rings and this one commands attention among a crowd without taking over. I would wear it everyday, and I hope whoever buys it does.

LOT 91: A FINE EMEREALD AND DIAMOND RING, BY KUTCHINSKY

This is more of a statement than my usual choices so it took me by surprise how much I loved wearing it. It’s such an eye-catching ring with the most stunning emerald and I never wanted to take it off.

LOT 189: A PAIR OF DIAMOND EARRINGS

These earrings caught my eye because of their incredible twinkle, the kind of sparkle that makes heads turn.

LOT 210: A PAIR OF DIAMOND EARSTUDS

Understated elegance, I think these deserve a place in everybody’s collection.

LOT 17: A DIAMOND ‘LOTUS BEWTEEN THE FINGER’ DRESS RING, BY VAN CLEEF & ARPELS

One ring, two ways – this is so striking. The mechanism is as cool as the ring itself. It’s one of those pieces no one could resist trying on for themselves.

LOT 49: AN ENAMEL AND DIAMOND NOVELTY PILL BOX, BY FRASCAROLO, CIRCA 1965

This just makes me smile, I couldn’t see it and not choose it. It reminds me of my son Teddy, who has always been devoted to pandas. I can imagine it being cherished and passed down through a family forever.

LOT 40: A RETRO GOLD BRACELET, CIRCA 1940

This tank bracelet has the perfect balance of being unusual, yet so very wearable. I love how it could effortlessly elevate your everyday uniform or add a bit of glamour when dressing up.

LOT 89: A PAIR OF DIAMOND EARCLIPS, BY VAN CLEEF & ARPELS, CIRCA 1970

These earrings might be my favourite of all. I would wear them all the time, dressed up or down, and I just love the way you can play around with different hoops. They would make such a precious gift for someone special.

LOT 44: A GOLD NECKLACE, FRENCH, CIRCA 1965

I completely fell in love with this necklace. It’s chunky but casual and there are so many ways I can imagine wearing it. Mostly I’d just love to it with the perfect pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. It’s an investment piece you’d never regret.

LOT 57: A COLLECTIBLE RETRO BRACELET, BY BULGARI, CIRCA 1960

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this bracelet. Everybody loves a chunky bracelet but this one feels truly unique. It’s so very cool but timeless.

Sustainability starts At Home

2024 is a year in which Adam’s wants to recognise the key role buying antique furniture and furnishings at auction contributes greatly to the sustainable initiative. In 2019 the Environmental Protection Agency reported stark figures that each year in Ireland 1.2 million reusable bulky items, primarily furniture goes into landfill. Similar to the problem of ‘fast fashion’, the constant production and consumption of new items is leading to rapidly growing waste problem. We want to acknowledge those who are already buying second hand or antique furniture at auction and to encourage new buyers by highlighting the benefits of acquiring affordable, well-made quality items that are built to last.

Orpen's Lover in Disguise

Orpen's Lover in Disguise

Yvonne Aupicq had met Orpen, we understand, while working as a nurse during the war. He had been admitted to hospital with a suspected case of scabies which ended up being a far more serious case of blood poisoning as he recounts in his wartime memoir ‘An Onlooker in France’. Their relationship continued after 1918 when Orpen was appointed as the official artist to The Paris Peace Conference. They relocated to capital and over the following decade he painted her numerous times, often nude as in Amiens 1914, or The Rape and Nude Girl Reading (1921). Working with her as his model during these early years after the war allowed Orpen an opportunity to re-fuel his creativity.

Before there were Maps, there was 'Beating the Bounds'

"Beating the bounds is a tradition that can be traced back to the medieval period. At this time, land was divided into parishes and the clergy and church wardens held the responsibility for its upkeep and management. It was up to the Church to ensure that its parishioners knew the local boundary lines and, before maps became commonplace, this had to be kept as a mental record."
