Aren’t these the prettiest earrings you ever saw? They’re by AmberSky and are called Romantic Notions. I think they’re very romantic indeed and have a kind of steampunk vibe too – old-fashioned but modern at the same time. I’m glad it’s my birthday coming up soon (well, in two months!!)

Just how beautiful and delicate are these Zoey earrings from Armelle Jewelry? I could see them being worn with a beautiful coral chiffon evening dress at a fancy ball. Or with a white linen shirt and a rad pair of jeans!

While writing the post below about Beads by Sam, I realised I hadn’t blogged about the jewellery I bought from her folksy page last week so here it is:

None of it matches, I know, but I have items of clothing that needed jewellery accompaniment and these fit the bill nicely. The necklaces are quite delicate and the snowy one goes brilliantly with a white linen top whereas the earrings have more oomph and work well with Mabel, my yellow cardigan. They came beautifully packaged too. Now I just want more!

Just loving this necklace and these earrings from Beads by Sam. I wish they were on her folksy page rather than her etsy page as they would be a little bit cheaper! They match my new top which I’ll show you in a mo…

Isn’t “The Admiral on Leave” a fabulous name for a necklace? The lovely grey crochet would go so well with the grey dress and bag I have in mind for my sister’s wedding. It’s by the talented Muntedkowhai and can be found here.
