Oborocharms Review

I recently got sent some things to review from Oborocharms, which sells adorable handmade charms, & custom designed stickers & badges. Kim, the creator, kindly sent me 3 badges, 2 sheets of stickers, 1 necklace, 1 phone charm & 1 ring to review. The badges feature "marshmallow bunnies", & they are just as cute as that sounds. I plan to decorate one of my bags with these!

The stickers are so adorable! They feature Kim's illustrations, which are so cute! They are vinyl die cut stickers, so not cheap paper stickers like the ones you'd normally buy from a stationers. They retail for $3.65, which I think is around £2? Not bad for independently produced vinyl stickers! I can't wait to use these (or perhaps just file them away in my massive sticker collection - I love stickers, probably a bit too much!).

Even with my love for stickers, my favourite part of the package were these jewellery pieces, featuring Kim's handmade clay charms. These are all hand painted, with incredible attention to detail. The charms are tiny, the milk bottle is 1.4cm high, which just makes the detail even more unbelievable! The chain on the milk bottle necklace is a bit short for me, at 18 inches, but that can easily be swapped out for one more suited to my chubby neck, haha! The phone charm features a heart shaped cookie, which is even smaller than the milk bottle, & is just as detailed. I'm a sucker for kawaii faces on (usually :P) inanimate objects, so these are right up my street!
The little octopus ring Kim sent is adjustable, so can be opened up to accommodate any size finger. All of the charms & jewellery in the shop are very reasonably priced, I don't think one thing is over $10! I'm definitely going back to buy lots of charms when I have some money - I want all of them! Shipping is also extremely reasonable, a mere $2 no matter how much you buy, & this includes international shipping too!

So a thumbs up for Oborocharms - I love indie shops, this one is no exception!


As well as the shop, you can find Oborocharms on Facebook & Twitter too, where you can keep up to date on the latest offers!
