As well as being wacky and colourful in design they are also handmade to make them that extra bit special. They can be found it several different shapes, sizes, colours and prices.

When sifting through the collection I couldn’t help but be attracted to this chunky black and white safari style bangle. I have always been a fan of animal/safari print so could instantly see myself jazzing up a simple black outfit with this one.

Multicoloured BangleI also loved this chunky multicoloured bangle simply because of the way the colours have been used to create such an original and fun design. If you love to stand out in a crowd then this is the bangle for you – you definitely wouldn’t go unnoticed.

Friday, September 14th, 2007

Zoe and MorganI always love to hear of new British talent and this brother and sister duo certainly fall into that category! Four collections down the line Zoe and Morgan are finally getting recognised for their fantastic creativity; jewellery with a ‘rock and roll’ twist seems to be their signature style, with beautiful, delicate feathers and skulls encrusted with unusual brown diamonds!

With ‘Glam Punk’ being the hot new trend this autumn/winter Zoe and Morgan’s new winter collection; ‘What’s Up Rockers’ will no doubt be a sell out! I’ve already got my eye on these great skull butterfly earrings, I think they’re so striking and will look fantastic if you have a cool punk rocker style!

Zoe and Morgan have a wide range of stockists these can be seen on their website, if in a rush head straight to net-a-porter, they have a cool selection!

Are You Taken Or Available?

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

Taken/Available NecklacesThese Taken/Available Necklaces are great for a) those who don’t want any male attention or b) those who want as much male attention as possible! If you’re the kind of girl who likes playing it cool you probably wont be impressed by the ‘available’ necklace, which let’s face it, screams desperation! Then again it would be fun to wear both necklaces on different nights out and see the different response! If you’re on the look out for a man and want to get straight to the point, this may help you save time!

Paris Hilton seems keen on these necklaces too so get yourself over to ASOS to follow the trend. For only £8 for the two necklaces, these are a bargain! The drop down charms on the bottom right are also in the style of Paris Hilton’s, and the necklaces come in both gold and silver.

Kenneth Jay Lane Red Strawberry Necklace

Kenneth Jay Lane Red Strawberry NecklaceIf you’re feeling fruity this season then I’ve found the perfect buy that’s sure to add bling to your wardrobe.

Strawberries are by far my favourite summer fruit so when I found out that Alex Curran was wearing this gorgeous, almost good enough to eat necklace I had to find out where she bought such a delight!! I finally tracked it down at www.bunnyhug.co.uk where you can choose from a variety of colours, although the life like red is the winner for me.

It’s a bit pricey at £65 but the vibrant colours and sparkling crystals will add that extra touch to any outfit, especially when teamed with the right bag and shoes. The necklace is from Kenneth Jay Lane’s collection, a popular choice among celebs.

Lovelinks

Monday, September 10th, 2007

LoveLinksI am actually in love with Lovelinks! Lovelinks is a new jewellery range that everyone is going crazy for and I can see why; it’s gorgeous!

I’ve always loved charm bracelets as they give you the opportunity to design your own piece of jewellery making it more personal and unique. If you too have a passion for jewellery and are fed up of seeing the same bracelet on hundreds of other girls then this new jewellery range is perfect for you, all you have to do is buy a bracelet or a necklace to start adding your own links to! You have the choice of a leather or solid silver strap and prices start from £9.95; bargain!

I must warn you that there are sooo many links to choose from so if looking to purchase your own lovelinks make sure you have plenty of time! All of the links are handmade in Denmark and they are all sterling silver. However some are decorated with 14ct gold and others are covered in beautiful coloured glass. The best news of all is that they are really reasonable; links range from £5 to £52.50 so there is something for everyone. I personally am spoilt for choice!

Floral Embroidered Jewellery Wraps

Jewellery WrapIf you’re going away for the weekend or on holiday and need somewhere to store your precious jewellery, there are some beautiful wraps available at Lularii.com. The wraps have zip compartments enabling you to separate necklaces from bracelets etc. and to keep the jewellery in one piece while in your suit case.

The material is embroidered in a floral design and can be purchased in black or red. An extended piece of material wraps around the body of the item and securely ties in a bow. The wraps are only £6 each – a bargain if you ask me!
